Saturday 16th May 2015 - Gennady Golovkin defeats Willie Monroe Jr and scores 20th-straight knockout  

Gennady Golovkin - one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world and easily its most exciting continued his dominance of the middleweight division with a knockout of underdog Willie Monroe Jr at the Forum in Inglewood, California on Saturday. Now 33-0, it was his 20th straight knockout. In round two, Golvokin threw several powerful hooks. A perfectly-timed left took down Monroe. He got up. Then a right sank him. Monroe got up again but from there on the American did'nt seem in complete control of his legs. I got off my game-plan when I got caught with a good shot, said Monroe. I was getting hit in the kidneys and the hips and I couldn't feel my legs. Monroe fought bravely, and even landed some nice combinations on wobbly legs, but the Kazakh was toying with him, trying to get in some extra rounds before he finished his opponent. I didn't want an easy round or an easy fight, said Golovkin. In rounds three through five Monroe said he kept going because he was thinking about his grandfather, who inspired him to be a boxer. But then in the sixth, Golovkin hit Monroe with rapid, powerful hooks, uppercuts, and crosses. Every punch seemed to land. Monroe went down against the ropes. The referee asked him if he wanted to continue. I'm done, said Monroe. After Golovkin has pulverized a challenger, he talks about the opponent being a good boy and how he likes to create a big drama show for the fans. The crowd laughs. They chant, Triple G! The nicest guy in the arena is also the toughest. It was no different against Monroe (19-2), a southpaw, who came into the fight prepared to shock the world but left as yet another victim. Willie is a real good fighter. I respect him because he is not scared. I wanted to show my fans how I can beat any style. In the co-feature, flyweight world champion Roman Chocolatito Gonzalez also one of boxing pound-for-pound best made his HBO debut against Mexican Edgar Sosa, a former junior flyweight titleholder. The exciting Nicaraguan made quick work of Sosa, downing him three times in round two. After the third knockdown, the referee intervened for the TKO. Chocolatito, who some call mini-Golovkin, hit his opponent with a dizzying barrage of combinations to end the fight. Afterwards, Sosa said every blow hurt. He endured 57 power punches before succumbing.
