Madiyev defeats Mexican boxer on GGG vs. Martirosyan fight undercard

The unbeaten Kazakh star Gennady

Golovkin, angry at Alvarez for what he believes was the intentional use of performance-enhancing drugs, came out with something to prove against Vanes Martirosyan, who was signed to replace Alvarez. HBO will televise beginning at 11 p.m. ET and open with Cecilia Braekhus facing Kali Reis in a historic women's title fight for the network. However, the Mexican was pulled from the fight after testing positive for clenbuterol. Golovkin began asserting himself early in the second, however, and drove Martirosyan to the ropes with a right uppercut.

One by one, unified middleweight world champion Gennady Golovkin tore through one challenger after another.

"He's not being tested and that tells a lot".

"I want everybody", he said afterwards. "Everybody he fought has been a new opponent".

Several minutes after the fight, Golovkin returned to the ring to salute his fans and take a bow as they continued to chant his name.

The Golovkin-Martirosyan was certainly not in the same class as a Golovkin-Canelo fight.

But the focus now shifts back to Alvarez, who is currently serving a six-month suspension handed by the Nevada Athletic Commission in April after failing a drug test.

Betfair Sportsbook traders want nothing to do with taking Gennady on in this fight and that makes ideal sense. Subliminal insults on commercials for an internationally known brand, downplaying the desire to fight Canelo again, offering disappointed fight fans something to watch without the original paywall, and the promise of a violent showcase, is the flawless recipe to the building an even bigger event in the near future.

"She's an unbelievable, tough fighter and she gave me a very tough, close fight", Braekhus said. "I know my style and it matches up good with his, but my style is much more interesting".

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.

"We made history", Reis said. "This is what we dream about".

"I've got this opportunity to shock the world". I finally get a guy that wants to fight and come forward. Kell Brook suffered a severe injury - a broken orbital bone - and then got stopped in his next fight with the same injury on the other side of his face. "It will be a flawless show for the boxing fans".

"I'm ready any time".

In the seventh round, after getting out-boxed by the speedier Braekhus, Reis (13-7-1) stunned the champion and thrilled the crowd by dropping her with a hard right hand that landed flush on the jaw. "She sells out 10,000 seat arenas in Norway and does big television ratings, which is big part of the pay-per-view worldwide telecast".

UFC featherweight champion Cris Cyborg was in attendance and confirmed her interest in boxing against Braekhus, adding to a night where it was hard not to focus on the specter of fights that could have been and could still happen.
