Golovkin Punishes Szeremeta, Drops Him Four Times in TKO Win

The Big Drama Show is back.  Gennadiy “GGG” Golovkin returned to the ring on Friday night in historic fashion.  The two-time world champion not only closed the show, he earned a division-record 21st successful defense of his IBF and IBO world middleweight titles. (photos by Melina Pizano)

Golovkin (41-1-1, 36 KOs), from Karaganda, Kazakhstan, who has worn a world championship belt every year since 2010, extended that streak with a dominant seventh-round TKO in a mandatory title defense victory against previously-undefeated top-rated contender Kamil Szeremeta (21-1, 5 KOs), from Biaylstok, Poland. 

The fight took place behind closed doors at Hard Rock Live at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, FL. 

Golovkin, wearing trunks trimmed in the NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers colors, gave a vintage performance connecting on 56% of his devastating power punches to the body and the head all set up by his workmanlike jab, all 317 of them, from the moment the opening bell sounded.

A variety of power punches and even a jab produced four knockdowns in rounds one, two, four and seven.  At the conclusion of the seventh round, Szeremeta’s corner ended the fight.
