As expected by many, GGG made short work of his fight with Vanes Martirosyan when the fight was stopped in the 2nd round. This is the 20th defense of Golovkin's middleweight belt that tied the record of Bernard Hopkins. The problem now is the next opponent of Golovkin which is not visible for now except for Saul Canelo Alvarez who is nursing a suspension of 6 months due to use of prohibited drugs in the training. In an interview, Oscar Dela Hoya defended Alvarez in saying that the doping charge is unfair since the drug found was minute or just a trace. Dela Hoya is the promoter of Alvarez.
