On Saturday night, Nov. 2, WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin continued his string of knockout victories by registering an 8th round stoppage over Curtis Stevens inside of the Theater in Madison Square Garden.

Fighting on HBO for the fourth time in a little over a year, Golovkin chose his shots carefully, dropping Stevens in the second round with a booming left hand and administering serious punishment on him in the following frames.

After eight rounds, Stevens’ corner elected to throw in the towel.

Sharing his thoughts on his fighter’s performance, trainer Abel Sanchez seemed pleased with Golovkin’s effort.

Antillon was last seen on the big stage two years ago, as he was stopped in the 3rd round of an electrifying clash with then-WBA lightweight champion Brandon Rios in Carson. One fight prior, Antillon engaged in an equally thrilling battle, losing a hotly-contested decision to then-WBC champion Humberto Soto.

Antillon has flown under the radar since those defeats, but it’s worth noting that he did return this past March in Hidalgo, Mexico to stop journeyman Leonardo Resendiz in two rounds.

A look inside Abel Sanchez’s Summit Gym in Big Bear, California, as WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (26-0, 23 KO’s) continues to put in work ahead of his June 29th clash with Birmingham’s Matthew Macklin (29-4, 20 KO’s).

IMG_9853

On this day, Golovkin could be seen sparring eight rounds; three with Paul Mendez (12-2-1, 5 KO’s), two with talented prospect Lamar Russ (13-0, 7 KO’s), and three with emerging light heavyweight Denis Grachev (13-1-1, 8 KO’s).

During the session, Golovkin started extremely slow but by the last three rounds with Grachev he was turning up the heat and landing crisp, viscous shots to the body and head.

Golovkin’s much-ballyhooed power has been the talk of much boxing circles and it’s one of the reasons many are predicting a painful night for Macklin later this month.
