Golovkin stops Proksa!

Gennady 'GGG' Golovkin has once again proved that he is the man to watch in the middleweight division right now. This time he has done it by knocking out Grzegorz Proksa in just five rounds.

At first, it looked as though it was going to be a tough night for the 30-year old. Proksa went down once in the first round but managed to rise back to his feet and cause Golovkin some problems. The British-based Pole was proving a tough target to hit until the fourth round, as that was when Golovkin decided to step up his work and unleash some of his concussive power. Proksa found himself on canvas once again in the 4th round, but once again he showed true grit and determination to rise back up to his feet. But unfortunately, it was clear that the quick-thinking Golovkin had already figured him out. Proksa did well to survive the round but that was just about it. In the 5th, Golovkin's punches were just even faster and harder and this time when Proksa went down he didn't get back up in time.

You have to feel for Proksa at the moment though. He was at the top of his game after just seven weeks of training and if he was in the ring with any other fighter it could have been different. It was just that even his best wasn't good enough to beat Golovkin. I think it's now time for Proksa to go back to his drawing board, sort out his defence and then starting aiming for another world title fight.
Golovkin on the other hand must now be on the verge of a fight with one of the top men in the division. He has proved time and time again that he deserves to be up there with the best and I think its only fair that he gets the opportunity.
