Gennady Golovkin takes out 'Canelo' frustrations on Vanes Martirosyan

Boxing: Gennady Golovkin-Vanes Martirosyan This Saturday On HBO

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.

"I feel like a star, like a star because, just if you check Bernard's opponents probably you understand that my record is much bigger, is much stronger, bigger", Golovkin said during a conference call last week. We were supposed to get Golovkin (37-0-1) facing Saul "Canelo" Alvarez in a rematch in what was potentially the biggest PPV of the year, But Alvarez positive drug test and subsequent suspension by the Nevada State Boxing Commission put Alvarez on the shelf. Many fans are hoping that on Mexican Independence Day in September the Canelo Alvarez fight happens and it would appear that Golovkin is still open to the idea. The fight was canceled after Alvarez failed two drug tests for the banned performance-enhancing drug clenbuterol.

Golovkin viciously assaulted Martirosyan and knocked him out in the second round of a scheduled 12-round middleweight title fight that was every bit as easy for him as the lopsided odds suggested it would be.

Golovkin vs. Martirosyan begins at 10:00 P.M, you may stream the fights for free via Sling TV.

Azkals grouped with South Korea, China, Kyrgyzstan in 2019 AFC Asian Cup
On Friday, India were drawn with hosts United Arab Emirates (UAE), Thailand and Bahrain in Group A of the 2019 AFC Asian Cup . Meanwhile, holders Australia will begin their title defence in Group B , where they will face Syria, Palestine, and Jordan.

"The second round it was true business", said Golovkin.

Alvarez will return from his six-month suspension on August 17, which would make him eligible to fight GGG in September.

"It was like being hit by a train".

Although Golovkin middleweight belts include the World Boxing Association, World Boxing Council and International Boxing Federation versions of the title, only the WBA and WBC belts will be on the line on Saturday.

When Martirosyan was first rumored as one of the potential Alvarez replacements, his inclusion on that list was viewed as a joke to many.

In steps Martirosyan (36-3-1). He has not fought in two years and he is moving up to the middleweight division after a career at super welterweight. Bellew was only a light-heavyweight when Haye was at the peak of his career as the World Boxing Association heavyweight champion. I think GGG has the ability to finish this fight relatively quickly.

"I was just hungry, training and training, and then that opportunity comes", Martirosyan said.

As a result, Golovkin was forced to find an opponent on short notice and Martirosyan was the only one that a majority of the sanctioning bodies were willing to accept.
