GGG came into this bout with twenty consecutive stoppages, and was facing a heavy handed Canadian born Lemieux who had upset on his mind.
The bout was a heated contest with Golovkin utilizing his superior boxing ability early on the pile up points, but Lemieux was not push over landing some vicious shots from time to time, proving that he was still a major threat.
Battered and beaten up, Lemieux threw some heavy bombs in the mid rounds, but was met with stinging counter from GGG, and in round eight, a slew of Golovkin’s punches prompted referee Steve Willis to halt the bout at 1:32, not only giving GGG his thirty-fourth consecutive victory, but the IBF middle belt as well.
Lemieux, who showed a lot of respect for Golovkin, also felt the fight was called off prematurely by the ref. GGG, who holds two of the four titles in the middleweight division, hopes to get a shot at the winner of Cotto/Canelo to add on the WBC title to his collection.
There are some great match-ups to be made in the 160-pound division. Fans are anxious to see how the future will unfold for GGG, who seems to be captivating the fight world, one victory at a time.
Who can derail the Golovkin victory train? Only time will tell…
