Video: Willie Monroe Reflects on His Defeat To Golovkin

Radio Rahim catches up with Willie Monroe to discuss his TKO defeat to Gennady Golovkin. WBA/IBO middleweight champion Gennady "GGG" Golovkin (30-0, 30KOs) stopped Monroe in six rounds at The Forum in Inglewood, California. Golovkin dropped him hard twice in the second round and one final time in the sixth, where Monroe told the referee that he had enough. With the victory Golovkin gained his 20th consecutive knockout victory.

After Monroe got dropped twice in the second, he miraculously came on strong in the third and fourth round of the contest, landing several combinations to the head and body of Golovkin. Eventually the power was too much and Monroe was overwhelmed as he got hurt really bad in the fifth and then taken out in the sixth.

Monroe just wasn't ready. Nothing to be ashamed of.

Real classy interview. This is what I like to see. No excuses, no bs, just owning up to what happened.

[QUOTE=Breed99;15700420]damn, dude couldn't feel his legs[/QUOTE] Ya he buckled a few times in the later rounds. Unreal that he was able to stay up. He's tough as they come.

they landed more punches through 5 than Floyd and Manny did their entire fight. I commend him for NOT running and clinching.
