It was a very hard punch. The fight was officially announced in October Murray was knocked down twice in the fourth round, even sustaining an additional punch to the head while down on a knee.
Golovkin found it much easier to land his punches on Murray in the middle-rounds. Murray came out for round 11 and therefore had lasted longer in the ring with Golovkin than any other of his opponents so far, although Murray came out with a bloodied countenance and Golovkin continued to connect with shots, the referee stopped the bout as he felt Murray was not fighting back effectively and had taken too many punches.
At the time of stoppage, the three judges had their respective scorecards reading —87, 99—88, and 99—88 in favour of Golovkin. Although it was a decline in viewership for Golovkin on HBO, it was expected as it was shown during the day and not peak time.
Boxing Insider reported that a deal had been agreed for Golovkin to defend his titles against American Willie Monroe Jr. In the first minute of the first round, Monroe started fast with superior movement and jabs, but after that the pace slowed with GGG cutting off the ring and outworking him.
In round six, GGG came forward and quickly caught an off guard Monroe with power shots along the ropes, and Monroe went down to his knees, just beating the ten count of referee Jack Reiss.
Referee Reiss was willing to give Monroe another chance, but Monroe did not respond. Reiss immediately stopped the contest.
Monroe was dropped a total three times. At the time of the stoppage, the scorecards read 50—43, 50—43, and 49—44 for Golovkin. In the post-fight, Golovkin said, "Willie is a good fighter, a tough fighter.
My performance was special for you guys. This was a very good drama show. This was for you. I am the real champion. I will show you. Both boxers took to Twitter to announce the news.
Golovkin established the pace with his jab while landing his power shots in between, keeping Lemieux off-balance the entire night. Lemieux was dropped by a body shot in the fifth round and sustained an additional punch to the head after he had taken a knee.
He was badly staggered in the eighth, so the referee was forced to halt the bout. In front of a sellout crowd of 16,, Golovkin successfully defended his middleweight titles with an early stoppage of Wade, his 22nd successive knockout.
Wade was knocked down three times before the fight was stopped with 23 seconds remaining in round 2. Give me my belt, give me my belt!

Brook was scheduled to fight in a unification bout against Jessie Vargas , whereas there was negotiations for Golovkin to fight Chris Eubank Jr.
On September 5, the WBA withdrew its sanction for the fight. Although they granted Golovkin a special permit to take the fight, they stated that their title would not be at stake.
The reason for the withdrawal was because Brook had never competed in the middleweight division. I guess that is a compliment to GGG as they sanctioned [Adrien] Broner moving up two divisions [from lightweight to welterweight] to fight Paulie [Malignaggi in ] and Roy Jones moving up two divisions [from light heavyweight to heavyweight] to fight John Ruiz [in ] for WBA titles, and Kell Brook is undefeated and considered a top pound-for-pound boxer.
He was met with stiff resistance as Brook began to fire back, connecting multiple clean combinations on Golovkin, none of which were able to faze him.
In the second round Brook had his greatest success of the fight, but in the process had his right eye socket broken. Over the next three rounds, Golovkin began to break Brook down.
The Englishman showed courage, determination and a great chin as he absorbed the bulk of a Golovkin onslaught. I feel his distance.
He has great distance. I need street fight. I expected him to be a bigger puncher. I think in the second round, he broke my eye socket.
He caught me with a shot, and I was starting to settle into the fight, but I was seeing three or four of him, so it was hard to get through it.
I was tricking him. His shots were coming underneath, and I was frustrating him. I was starting to settle into him, but when you see three or four of them, it is hard to carry on.
According to Compubox stats, Golovkin landed of his punches thrown This was considered by HBO to be a huge success for an afternoon showing.

As the negotiations continued, Jacobs wanted a better split, around 60— The WBA granted an extension for the negotiation period on 7 October, as the two sides originally had until October 10 to come to an arrangement or else a purse bid would be due.
There was also a request to change the purse bid split to 60—40, which the WBA declined. Golovkin started his training camp for the fight on 17 October.
Loeffler told the LA Times on 18 October, although the negotiations remain active, the fight will not take place on December A new date for early would need to be set, still looking at Madison Square Garden to host the fight.

After defeating Jacobs, Golovkin said, "My goal is all the belts in the middleweight division. Of course, Billy Joe is the last one.
It is my dream. The last time Golovkin fought in his home country was in Golovkin, who before the fight stated he would not attend, was joined by his trainer Abel Sanchez and promoter Tom Loeffler.
The fight is done. When I was born, fear was gone. Right now is a different story. In September, it will be a different style -- a big drama show.
Tonight, first congrats to Canelo and his team. Right now, I think everyone is excited for September. Canelo looked very good tonight, and percent he is the biggest challenge of my career.
Good luck to Canelo in September. The draw saw Golovkin make his 9th consecutive defence. Speaking to Max Kellerman after the fight, Golovkin said, "It was a big drama show.
I put pressure on him every round. Look, I still have all the belts. I am still the champion. Then I was building from there.
I think I won eight rounds. I felt that I won the fight. I won at least seven or eight rounds. I was able to counterpunch and made Gennady wobble at least three times.
I feel frustrated over my draw. WBO middleweight champion Saunders said he was ready for Golovkin and looking to fight in December too. The commission would decide at the hearing whether the fight would be permitted to go ahead as scheduled.

Former light middleweight world title challenger and California local Vanes Martirosyan , 21 KOs became a front runner to challenge Golovkin. The IBF stated they would not sanction their belt if the fight was made and Golovkin could potentially be stripped of his title.
Martirosyan was criticised as an opponent as he had been a career light middleweight, he was coming off a loss and he had not fought in two years.
The WBC approved Martirosyan as a late replace opponent. On fight night, in front of 7, fans, Golovkin knocked Martirosyan out in round 2 to tie Bernard Hopkins record of 20 consecutive middleweight title defences.
Golovkin applied pressure immediately backing Martirosyan against the ropes and landing his jab. Martirosyan had short success at the end of round 1 when he landed a combination of punches.

Referee Jack Reiss made a full count. The time of stoppage was 1 minute. Vanes is a very good fighter. He caught me a few times in the first round.
In the second round, I came out all business after I felt him out in the first round. At this time, Golden Boy were already in light negotiations with Eddie Hearn for a fight against Daniel Jacobs instead.
