Gennady Golovkin will quickly knockout Osumanu Adama

In a Sunday interview with On The Ropes Boxing Radio, Gennady Golovkin called Osumanu Adama “a big champion.”

Golovkin (28-0, 25 KOs) is set to defend the WBA and IBO middleweight belts against the 33-year-old Adama (22-3, 16 KOs) on February 1 in Monte Carlo.

“I’m focused for February 1,” said Golovkin, 31, who has now recorded 15 consecutive knockouts. “I think it’s a great fight for us. I have a great opponent in Osumanu Adama. He’s a big champion.”

A silver medalist as a middleweight at the 2004 Summer Olympics, Golovkin last vacated the squared circle in November after successfully safeguarding his crowns versus an overmatched Curtis Stevens.

“GGG” mercilessly stalked the 28-year-old Stevens (25-4, 18 KOs) and floored the challenger with a ferocious left in the second.

The bout was called at the end of the eighth round after Golovkin landed 293 punches and badly defaced Stevens.

Meanwhile, Adama most recently stopped Doel Carrasquillo following six rounds of action.

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

Accordingly, a ferocious and accurate slugger who has never once hit the canvas, Golovkin will quickly finish Adama and then seek a marquee opponent.

Facing “a big champion,” expect Gennady Golovkin to knock Osumanu Adama onto Queer Street within seven rounds roughly two weeks from tonight.
