Golovkin v Martirosyan: Final press conference round-up
Martirosyan himself made the point after the fight at the StubHub Center ended with him being counted out after a flurry of blows from Golovkin early in the second round.
But Golovkin began to press the action more in Round 2, using his jab to set up his power punches. The champ is coming off his first blemish last September in a split-decision draw with Canelo Alvarez. He was expected to face Canelo Alvarez, but the rematch was called off after Alvarez failed a drug test and was suspended. "It's the hardest I've ever been hit", Martirosyan said. I want to have as many fights as possible. He addressed his remarks to Golovkin, "The inimitable words of Mohammed Ali says, you have to lose to be a whole champion, there's no disgrace in losing". The bout will be for Golovkin'sWBA (Super), WBC, and IBO middleweight titles. While GGG settled on facing Martirosyan instead, Andrade's bold attempt to secure a short notice fight with the unified middleweight champion certainly puts him in the discussion for future big fights at 160.
So Golovkin's camp went to work on a late replacement bout for StubHub Center's outdoor ring among Los Angeles' savvy boxing fans. With Saturday's victory, he joins American Bernard Hopkins for the division record of 20 successful title defences. I think GGG has the ability to finish this fight relatively quickly.
Yes, the man who celebrated his 32nd birthday on Tuesday will receive a bumper pay-day for doing the honourable thing by the sport and providing Golovkin with an opponent but some things aren't worth the cash and in GGG he'll face a bear with a sore head.
Within 90 days Golovkin will have to conduct the defense of the IBF belt against mandatory Challenger Ukrainian Sergey Derevyanchenko. "I've been killing myself for the last two years, just thinking, 'What mistakes did I make, or what did I do to deserve this, to be inactive outside of the ring?' This fight is everything I've dreamed of, and I can't wait to show it to the world".
"We were supposed to fight in June (2017) and then it was March and (Sulecki) pulled out", Martirosyan said.
Under his Nevada suspension, Alvarez does not have to take any drug tests until a month before his next fight.
With his father standing behind him, Martirosyan has his own reasons to contend for the championship belt. The veteran boxing writer said WBC light middleweight champ Jermell Charlo and WBO middleweight titlist Billy Joe Saunders are seriously being considered.
