Undefeated middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin was in a merciless mood after his blockbuster rematch with Saul "Canelo" Alvarez was canceled as he knocked out Vanes Martirosyan in the second round. The bout will be televised and live streamed online in the United Kingdom and Ireland on BoxNation.
However, the second round was one way traffic, as Golovkin unleashed a succession of rapid fire punches.
Of course, that did not happen due to a doping violation from Canelo.
Martirosyan, who normally fights at light middleweight, will be stepping up a division to face the hard-hitting Golovkin, who is unbeaten through 38 fights, including 33 by knockout.
The rematch was cancelled because of Alvarez's two failed drug tests in February, followed by his suspension by the Nevada State Athletic Commission on April 18.
Martirosyan (36-3-1, 21 KOs) has trained in the southern California boxing scene all his life, before being guided by the legend Freddie Roach and training out of Wild Card Boxing club, he is now with Glendale based trainer Edmond Tarverdyan, who is well-known for training former UFC women's champion Ronda Rousey.
Gennady Golovkin didn't take long to dispatch his short-notice opponent Vanes Martirosyan last night, coming home with a second-round KO.
Although he kept his titles, the fights were too close for comfort for Golovkin.
Golovkin and Alvarez had fought to a draw last September.
Martirosyan was a last-minute replacement following the cancellation of the Kazakh's much anticipated rematch with Canelo Alvarez of Mexico. "We made a lot more concessions than the other side did", Golovkin said, as per ESPN. My ring rust showed, my timing was off.
Even when ignoring the Alvarez situation causing a massive change for Golovkin's May 5 plans, the last few weeks have been a whirlwind of news that will have lasting effects in the middleweight division for the next year, the biggest of which involves the ongoing saga between Golovkin and his status as the IBF middleweight world champion. Braekhus (32-0, 9 KOs) of Colombia and fighting out of Norway is looking to extend he nine-year world female welterweight champion reign against Reis (13-6-1-, 4 KOs) from Providence, R.I. Now it seems every middleweight in the world wants to fight him. I challenge anyone to come and take my belts.
