The Kazakh star has now advanced his undefeated record to 29-0.

It is a shame that Golovkin does not get the same attention from American fans and media members as some of the most popular names in the sport, but there is no denying he is among the best that the sport has to offer.

With his latest win, we can hope to see GGG in a marquee fight in the near future.

    Golovkin is one of the most exciting athletes in the world today. Including his gigantic number of amateur fights, he has the largest number of fights under his belt than any other active fighter in the world. He has never been so much as knocked down in almost 350 fights, let alone knocked out.

    His fights are always action-packed. There is almost no clinching and dancing throughout his fights, he comes to fight immediately from the opening bell and just annihalates everyone who comes to challenge him. His fights are real boxing matches too, not the three minute long elbowing fests which Mike Tyson became famous for. Golovkin should be the biggest star in boxing and one of the most famous athletes in the world by now. But it will happen eventually.
