WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (30-0, 27 KOs) scored a third round demolition of former world champion Daniel Geale (30-3, 16 KOs) Saturday night before 8,572 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Golovkin dropped Geale in round two with a barrage of punches. The end came in round three when Golovkin dropped Geale again with a huge right hand. Time was 2:47. Making the win all the more impressive is Geale had connected with a hard punch just a fraction of a second before Golovkin’s punch landed and Golovkin’s blow still carried KO power.
