Gennady Golovkin stops Adama by TKO

Share

 

There was never much hope that Osumanu Adama would upset or even be competitive against Gennady Golovkin, and he was not, as Golovkin was far too much for the Ghanaian last night in Monte Carlo, retaining his WBA middleweight title  via a TKO in the seventh round .

In all honesty, the fight wasn't even very entertaining, despite Golovkin (29-0, 26 KO) being in pretty good form and scoring three knockdowns.

Referee Luis Pabon finally stopped the fight with a still-standing Adama taking unnecessary punishment in a fight that had long since concluded in all reality.

Adama (22-4, 16 KO) tried to use his reach and move around the ring, but he came out with what seemed like nervous legs, and was down on a balance issue near the end of round one.

Gennady Golovkin after the fight said he wants Floyd Mayweather Jr. next.

“I want this fight, I will go to 154.’’ He also also mentioned wanting to fight WBC middleweight champion Sergio Martinez.
