Gennady Golovkin has beaten mandatory challenger Kamil Szeremeta via TKO. The IBO and IBF champion displayed his dominance from start to finish, eventually getting the stoppage in the seventh round. The stoppage came because of the referee deeming Szeremeta not fit enough to continue. However, the Kazakh deserved it after he had control over the entire fight. Consequently, after the bout, ‘GGG’ broke down the whole fight.

In his post-fight interview, Gennady Golovkin seemed extremely satisfied with his win. He said, “No big surprise because you know, all this high level you know. It is… Kamil Szeremeta, he is a great boxer. Come on, guys. I’m not surprised, no. I just… I feel very comfortable because I worked hard, I had a lot of time, I had a lot of people, good people with me, who support me. Thank you to these people.”

He then talked about Szeremeta’s corner, calling it off. He said, “No no, I can watch you know, just… Respect [to] Kamil’s trainer. Respect Kamil’s corner. Very smart because you know, he [was] done. Come on, guys.”

Given that he was aware that a stoppage was in the offing, ‘GGG’ could pace his latter fight onslaught well.

How did Gennady Golovkin beat Kamil Szeremeta so easily?

Szeremeta went into the fight as a massive underdog. His best chance was if he could start fast and hurt Golovkin. However, this was not the case since ‘GGG’ was the one who started faster. He got a knockdown in the first round with a vicious left hook, and that set the tone for the fight. Three knockdowns and seven rounds later, ‘Triple G’ had seen it through.

Throughout the fight, the skill difference was easy to see. Golovkin had a far superior speed, power, and movement. It seemed as though Szeremeta was walking into a barrage of punches. And although he may have gone into the fight as the favorite, no one expected him to make it this easy. However, this fight sets things up perfectly for a trilogy against his rival Canelo Alvarez.
