Image result for golovkin vs martirosyanIt wasn’t the win that Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (38-0-1, 34 KO’s) was looking for nessisarily, but a win is a win none the less.  Golovkin, who was due to make a huge amount of dollars in his rematch against Canelo Alvarez, was somewhat cheated if you take a closer look.  GGG was supposed to fight in Vagas, but instead gets moved to the Stub Hub Center in Carson California.  Thats a loss of money.  GGG was supposed to fight on HBO Pay Per View.  Instead he gets moved to regular HBO.  That’s another loss of money.  GGG was supposed to fight Canelo Alvarez.  Instead he gets Vanes Martirosyan (36-4-1, 21 KO’s).  Thats a tremendous loss of money.  Never the less, the champ walked in to the ring with his head held high, and did what he was supposed to do.

In the first round, Golovkin was careful with the very active Martirosyan.  Vanes even hit GGG a few times, and one time pretty well actually, snapping Golovkins head back.  Golovkin shook his head “yes” as to congratulate Martirosyan for the clean hit, and then it was straight to business.  In the second round, realizing that Martirosyan could not hurt him with one punch, Golovkin came out guns blazing.  Pumping out the jab, and landing it numerous times, Golovkin started to let the power go.  In the middle of the second round, he landed a huge right hand across the jaw of Vanes, and followed it up with an even bigger left hook that put Vanes down.  At first, looking like he was going tp beat the count, Martirosyan played back down at the count of 9, and just like that it was over.  GGG successfully defends his WBA/WBC middleweight titles, and remains undefeated.

Image result for whyte vs browneToday on Sky Sports and HBO Boxing after dark, we had a special Heavyweight attraction, as Dillian Whyte (23-1, 17 KO’s) absolutely destroyed Lucas Brown (25-1, 22 KO’s).  Whyte was almost a 2-1 favorite to win the fight, but fought like a 30-1 favorite after the opening bell.  Whyte won every round before eventually knocking Lucas Brown’s head off in the 6th.  The first round was a feel out round between the two, but Whyte won it anyhow.  Whyte started punching to the body in the second round, something that he has been known to do quite effectively.  In fact, Whyte lands the second most body punches in the heavyweight division, behind only Joseph Parker who we will see next week against Anthony Joshua.

Whyte also opened up a cut over Brown’s left eye in that second round.  From then on the blood would poor, perhaps altering the vision of Brown.  The third through fifth rounds were more of the same, as Whyte sustained an effective body attack, which really opened up the head.  In the 6th round, Whyte landed a combination, which slightly threw Brown off.  After that, he landed a right hand followed by a delayed left hook, which knocked Brown out cold.  Brown was on the canvas for several minutes before he was able to get up, and when he was, he had on an oxygen mask.  After the fight, Whyte called out Deontay Wilder, telling the WBC champ, “I’m ready.”  Whyte remains the WBC Silver belt holder, which could possibly mean that he will be Wilder’s next mandatory challenger.

Image result for caneloThere has been some breaking news in the ongoing Canelo VS GGG saga.  Canelo Alvarez has been temporarily suspended by the Nevada Athletic commission, for testing positive twice for performance enhancing drug Clenbuterol.  Canelo Alvarez is currently scheduled to have a rematch against Gennady “GGG” Golovkin on May 5th 2018, which is now in a bit of jeopardy.  Canelo’s positive test for PED clenbuterol was blamed on tainted meat in Mexico, which apparently is a problem over there.  Had Canelo been smarter and trained in the US, this all could have been avoided, unless of course he was knowingly taking the drug.  Clenbuterol is widely known for burning fat quickly while maintaining muscle mass, which is a boxers dream.

The Nevada Athletic commission will reconvene on April 10th 2018, where Canelo will be given the chance to appeal.  The fact that Alvarez is a huge money maker in the sport will definitely help his cause, but a final verdict is yet to come.  Apparently, the levels on Clenbuterol found in Canelo’s blood, are on par with the theory that he ate tainted meat but, Clenbuterol only take 7 days to completely leave the body.  That short period can suggest that the star was wangling taking the drug, and just stopped at some point before the testing.  The investigation is ongoing, ad updates will be available as soon as possible.
