Post fight review
Feared Gennady Golovkin continued his impressive KO streak after dismantling mandatory challenger Dominic Wade in the second round.
The previously unbeaten challenger hit the deck in the first round and again in the second, prior to the stoppage.
Golovkin was in no mood to hang around and cut off the ring superbly as he so often does, to land the crunching shots to halt Wade in his tracks.
The steady supply of sickening right hooks shocked Wade to his boots. The Champion landed over 40% of his total punches thrown.
Victory for GGG sets up potential unification bouts against the likes of Canelo Alvarez and Billy Joe Saunders.
On the undercard, Roman Gonzalez recorded a near landslide victory over McWilliams Arroyo to retain his WBC World Flyweight crown.
Pre fight preview
Pound for pound puncher Gennady Golovkin returns to BoxNation screens live on Saturday 23 April against Dominic Wade.
Triple G defends his ‘Super’ WBA and IBF World Middleweight Titles against the unbeaten Wade at the LA Forum, which sold over 8,000 tickets in the first week of going on sale.
The feared Kazakh KO King is one of the most exciting boxers on the planet and will be hoping victory sets up the mandated mega fight with the winner of Canelo Alvarez and Amir Khan.
After demolishing David Lemieux back in October on BoxNation to pick up the IBF crown, Golovkin now returns to the Forum where he sold out the arena against Willie Monroe last May.
The next challenger to attempt to dethrone GGG is Dominic Wade, who remarkably fights for his first professional Titles.
Injury to Tureano Johnson opened the door for Wade to step in and take the mandatory challenge enforced by the IBF.
Wade, a standout amateur, has racked up 18 wins on the spin since turning pro back in 2009.
A split decision victory last time out against former World Champion Sam Soliman is arguably Wade’s biggest scalp to date.
Our very own Billy Joe Saunders will be keeping a close eye on proceedings as he has ambitions of a huge Summer showdown of his own.
It’s sure to be an exciting bout with both men unbeaten, the undercard features 44-0 sensation Roman Gonzalez who defends his WBC World Flyweight Title against McWilliams Arroyo.
