The fight was the HBO televised co-feature to Gennady Golovkin’s sixth round stoppage of Willie Monroe.
 
The knockout of Sosa, Gonzalez’s ninth straight stoppage, was lauded by the international boxing media who also praised K2 Promotions and HBO for providing Gonzalez the opportunity to showcase his skills on the sport’s biggest stage.
 
Gonzalez is currently ranked #1 in the ESPN and Ring Magazine’s Pound-For-Pound ratings.
