Professional boxer, Gennady Gennadyevich Golovkin, faced off against Vanes Martirosyan in a middleweight championship bout last weekend. Golovkin, the world champion, wasted little time dropping Martirosyan in the second round with a violent combination, improving his record to 38-0-1.

Golovkin was initially scheduled to fight superstar Canelo Alvarez in a Cinco de Mayo rematch but Alvarez was suspended a month before the fight for failed drug tests. The Alvarez camp insists the drugs found in Alvarez’s system were the result of contaminated meat and not doping. However, the boxing commission did not buy this story, suspending him for six months. Martirosyan was the fill in to fight Golovkin, and as expected was destroyed.

Golovkin has been a dominant force in the middleweight division for some time now. However, his legacy still lacks a win over another superstar. This can be attributed to the other superstar in the division, Canelo Alvarez, dodging him for years. When the two finally met in 2017, Golovkin was robbed in an extremely controversial draw. There has yet to be a rematch. Golovkin has remained adamant about wanting to fight the best.

“Who is number one right now? Just… Bring him, I’ll show you,” Golovkin said.
