Gennady Golovkin will defend the WBA and IBO middleweight belts versus Osumanu Adama on Saturday night at the Salle des etoiles in Monte Carlo.
The 31-year-old Golovkin (28-0, 25 KOs), who has now recorded 15 consecutive knockouts, last vacated the squared circle in November after successfully safeguarding his crowns against an overmatched Curtis Stevens.
A silver medalist as a middleweight at the 2004 Summer Olympics, “GGG” mercilessly stalked the 28-year-old Stevens (25-4, 18 KOs) and floored the challenger with a ferocious left in the second.
The bout was called at the end of the eighth round after Golovkin landed 293 punches and badly defaced Stevens.
Meanwhile, the 33-year-old Adama (22-3, 16 KOs) most recently stopped Doel Carrasquillo following six rounds of action.
Adama, who amassed an amateur record of 54-4, is nothing more than an average prizefighter.
Accordingly, a ferocious and accurate slugger who has never once hit the canvas, Golovkin will quickly finish Adama and then seek a marquee opponent.
Expect Gennady Golovkin to knock Osumanu Adama onto Queer Street within seven rounds just hours from now.
