Gennady Golovkin def. Curtis Stevens by TKO round 8 3:00

Gennady Golovkin vs. Curtis Stevens was built largely on the promise of a big KO finish, but for a time, it looked like Stevens might be able to box his way past Golovkin's power. But as the fight progressed, Golovkin landed more and more, piling the punches on as the rounds wore on. By the end of round 8, both the referee and Stevens' corner had seen enough, and the fight was waved off.

Early on, this was a battle of Golovkin's jab vs. Stevens' left hook. But ironically, it was a left hook by Golovkin that drew first blood, as he dropped Stevens in round 2 with that hook. Stevens did a surprisingly good job recovering from that knockdown, but he could not deal with the offensive output and constant power punches from Golovkin.

Post-fight, Golovkin called out Sergio Martinez to a big cheer from the crowd.

In the HBO opener, Mike Perez defeated Magomed Abdusalamov. What started off as a somewhat sloppy Heavyweight fight turned into a very entertaining clash. Abdusalamov suffered some sort of facial injury in round 1, which plagued him throughout the fight. He stuck with it though, continually going for the KO. Despite his heart, Perez was too much, as the Cuban fighter took home a hard-earned unanimous decision win.
