By John J. Raspanti, DoghouseBoxing. Gennady Golovkin (24-0, 21 KOs) impressively retained his WBA and IBO middleweight titles by stopping tough Grzegorz Proksa (28-2, 21 KOs) at the Turning Stone Casino in Verona, N.Y.

Proksa, a southpaw, tried to box in the first minute. Golovkin, making his American debut, landed two heavy right hands. Proksa was moving, but immediately felt the power of Golovkin. He landed a sweeping left hook that knocked Proksa down for a three count. Golovkin, tall and rangy, came out throwing a heavy jab in round two. Proksa fighting like a smaller Sergio Martinez, landed a number of pretty good left hands. Golovkin landed a double uppercut to Proksa's eye at the end of the round.

In round three, the fighters traded punches in the middle of the round. Proksa connected with two lead rights. Golovkin landed some heavy artillery near the end of the round that stung Proksa. In round four Golovkin ripped some hard shots to the body of Proksa. A heavy left to the body and left - right combination knocked Proksa down near the ropes. The game fighter from Poland dragged himself up. Golovkin was chopping Proksa down.

In round five, Golovkin continued his onslaught. His body work was impressive. Proksa, never knocked down in any of his previous 28 fights, went down again from a hard left hand. He was up at seven, but the referee waved off the contest.

The time was 1:11 in round five.

"This is my first fight in the United States," said Golovkin in the ring."It was not an easy fight."
