Gennady Golovkin def. Daniel Geale via KO (Round 3, 2:47)

There was never any doubt that Gennady Golovkin was the favorite in this fight, however the tough veteran Geale was seen as a tough test for Golovkin. But instead of providing that test, Geale ended up as just another GGG victim. After going down in the 2nd round, Geale was dropped again late in the 3rd, and though he gained his feet, Geale indicated to the referee that he could not continue and the fight was waved off.

Prior to the KO, Geale seemed to be doing decently when in the center of the ring, however Golovkin used the ring to his advantage. He consistently cut off the ring, pushing Geale to the corner where he could unload on him. In the end of the fight, Geale pushed to escape the corner, and when he did, the right hand stopped him dead in his tracks. This marks the 17th KO in a row for the undefeated Golovkin.

Post fight, Golovkin called out Miguel Cotto in a Middleweight title unification fight that would undoubtedly be a big one.

Also on the card, Bryant Jennings defeated Mike Perez in a decent but unspectacular Heavyweight fight. Jennings took the win via split decision after Perez was controversially docked a point in round 12 for a late blow on a break.
