On Saturday night, Oct. 17, Kazakhstan native Gennady Golovkin scored another big victory for his career as he punished former champion David Lemieux for eight one-sided rounds before scoring a TKO victory. With the win, Golovkin adds the IBF middleweight belt to his collection along with his WBA bauble.

With this being his first showcase on HBO pay per view, Golovkin (34-0, 31 KO’s) was systematic as he went to work inside of New York City’s Madison Square Garden. Golovkin’s power shots began finding a home early and he was outlanding Lemieux (34-3, 31 KO’s) at a three-to-one ratio as the bout pushed on.

A very intriguing fight in the middleweight division will be going down, as it was announced by Golden Boy Promotions and Eye of the Tiger Management that David Lemieux (33-2, 31 KO’s) and Hassan N’Dam N’Jikam (31-1, 18 KO’s) will be facing off for the vacant IBF middleweight title.

Lemieux is a hot ticket in the sport and presently riding an eight-fight winning streak, with seven of the victories coming by way of stoppage. His last fight was an entertaining 10th round TKO over the very rugged Gabriel Rosado on HBO. Lemieux brings a very stout punch with him into the ring but he will certainly have his mettle tested with N’Dam.
