NEW YORK, NY - In the highly anticipated main event on Saturday night, WBA/IBO and WBC "Interim" World Champion Gennady "GGG" Golovkin (34-0, 31 KOs) added the IBF Middleweight Title to his collection with an exhilarating performance against former IBF Middleweight World Champion, David Lemieux (34-3, 31 KOs), culminating in an eighth round technical knockout victory on Saturday, October 17, at Madison Square Garden with a sold out crowed of 20, 548 fight fans.

Golovkin, showed his offensive and defensive prowess in the ring against the valiant Lemieux and dropped Lemieux in round five and ended the night with a battering display in the eighth round earning the stoppage at the 1:32 mark.

"I feel great, it was a great fight, I felt his power, but I was strong tonight and my punches hurt him. He is a great champion and I'm glad to beat him," said Golovkin. "I want all the belts, now I have two. The winner of Cotto-Canelo for sure will be next. I'm not sure who will win that fight, but I want to fight the winner next. I'm staying at 160 until I have all the belts."

"I feel like the referee called the fight too early. I am fine," said Lemieux. "When he stopped it I wasn't event on the mat, I can keep going. I have a lot of respect for Golovkin as a fighter. We prepared well for this fight but I feel like I waited too long to take some shots tonight and that really hurt me. I want another chance at Golovkin and I will take advantage of it."
