Gennady Golovkin vs. Vanes Martirosyan Full Fight Video Highlights & Results

The boxing world took center stage on Cince de Mayo weekend with Gennady Golovkin vs. Vanes Martirosyan at the Stubhub Center in Carson, Calif. The event was dubbed “Mexico Style 2” as pound-for-pound great Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs) faced his late replacement Martirosyan (36-3-1, 21 KOs).
The bout was for Golovkin’s WBA (Super), WBC, and IBO middleweight titles. Initially, Triple G was slated to face off against Canelo Alvarez in a rematch of their Sept. 16 draw, but Canelo was forced to withdraw from the bout following two positive drug tests for clenbuterol. Canelo claimed that the failed drug tests were a result of contaminated meat. With Canelo withdrawing from the bout, Vanes Martirosyan stepped in to fill the void.
In the co-main event of the night, Cecilia Braekhus (32-0, 9 KOs), the world’s No. 1 pound-for-pound women’s fighter, defended her four welterweight championships — WBA, WBC, IBF, WBO, and IBO female welterweight titles — against Kali Reis (13-6-1, 4 KO). Braekhus’ appearance on the fight card is a historic one, becoming the first woman to fight on HBO boxing.
“America is always the dream for every fighter to come and make it big,” Braekhus told the media during fight week. “Every fighter on the planet wishes and dreams to be on the biggest boxing stage in the world. I know there’s a lot of fighters, a lot of male fighters, who would do anything to be where I am on Saturday, so this is a big deal.”
