This was serious business, according to Gennady Golovkin.
After Canelo Alvarez was forced to pull out of his rematch with GGG due to a failed drug test, Martirosyan was selected as a new opponent. Martirosyan showed some power in the opening round, but GGG came out in the second looking to finish the fight and not get caught with something silly.
Following his win, GGG said he’s ready to fight anyone. We’ll have to wait and see who challenges GGG for his middleweight titles next.
