Gennady Golovkin wrecks Steve Rolls with big knockout

  • Triple G has multiple gripes about how boxing sets bouts

Former unified middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin knocked out Steve Rolls in a devastating fourth-round victory. The pair of middleweights squared off in the scheduled for twelve rounds bout with no title on the line.

After a controversial drawn superfight against Canelo in 2017 was followed by that narrow points defeat previous year, Golovkin now wants to take the Mexican's IBF, WBC and WBA middleweight titles.

Golovkin, who was fighting under new trainer Johnathon Banks for the first time, now has a record of 39 wins, one draw and one defeat.

It's also Golovkin's first fight with Jonathon Banks as his trainer, so taking on an also-ran makes sense so that Triple-G and Banks can work through a real fight before what comes next.

The third battle between "GGG" and "Canelo" was (and still is) in talks. The loss and Alvarez' subsequent handling of Brooklyn's Daniel Jacobs on Cinco de Mayo elevated the Mexican to lineal status in the Middleweight division, and to some pundits: a three-way tie for the P4P rankings with Vasyl Lomachenko and Terence Crawford in the lower weight divisions. Golovkin shared his elation in the post-fight interview, in the boastful manner typified by the GGG fight fans have grown to love/expect.

Meanwhile, with respect to his most recent victory, GGG said "I love knockouts and I love NY, it was a great night all around".

Talking who his next opponent should be Golovkin said that "everybody knows".

He went on to add that he believes Canelo will take the fight: "I believe". Just bring him, ask him. I'm ready. If you want big drama show, please tell him.
