Gennady Golovkin punishes Osumanu Adama

Gennady Golovkin successfully defended the WBA and IBO middleweight belts versus an overwhelmed Osumanu Adama earlier tonight at the Salle des etoiles in Monte Carlo.

Golovkin (29-0, 26 KOs), who has now recorded 16 consecutive knockouts, floored the 33-year-old Adama (22-4, 16 KOs) in the first and sixth rounds.

Sensing a beaten man, “GGG” mercilessly stalked Adama and again bullied the challenger to the canvas with a savage hook in the seventh frame.

Referee Louis Pabon compassionately halted the lopsided beating at 1:20 of the decisive round.

“I feel terrific, I’m very happy with my performance,” said Golovkin, 31, who captured a silver medal as a middleweight at the 2004 Summer Olympics.

“From the opening round I was comfortable with the fight and felt good about my power and the pace of the fight. He was a tough opponent but I was never hurt during the fight.”

Adama, who amassed an amateur record of 54-4, is nothing more than an average prizefighter.

Regardless of the competition, Golovkin again proved to be a punishing, ferocious and accurate slugger.

The powerful Russian, who has never been knocked down in over 375 scraps, is slated to next enter the squared circle on April 26 at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

No matter the opponent, Gennady Golovkin will knock another man onto Queer Street in Gotham this spring.
