Here are the boxing results from the Gennady Golovkin vs. Kell Brook middleweight title fight, plus more boxing results from a great weekend of Boxing.
What a great weekend of Boxing! This past Friday, we witnessed Robert Easter, Jr. capture his 1st world title in an epic fight with Richard Commey, and Daniel ‘Miracle Man’ Jacobs continuing his quest to be one of the best in the world with his stoppage of Sergio ‘The Latin Snake’ Mora.
The great boxing action continued on Saturday night as we witnessed a classic blood and guts fight from Yoshihiro Kamegai and Jesus Soto-Karass, and Roman ‘Chocolatito’ Gonzalez past his toughest test by defeating Carlos ‘Principe’ Cuadras to capture his 4th world title in 4 different weight classes.
With the win, Chocolatito became the only Nicaraguan fighter in boxing history to win world titles in 4 different weight classes. All of the fights were great this weekend in what can easily be seen as the best weekend for Boxing in 2016.
All eyes, however, was on Gennady ‘GGG’ Golovkin as he continued his dominance in the sport by walking through a very gamed ‘Special K’ Kell Brook in 5 rounds. Brook had his moments in the fight as he stunned GGG with a good right hand shot that stopped GGG in his tracks.
Kell Brook’s right eye would not hold up, however, as GGG would close the show in round 5 with a barrage of brutal punches which caused Brook’s corner to throw in the towel. Gennady ‘GGG’ Golovkin was awarded the 5th round TKO victory I feel because Brook’s hands were down in a defenseless state.
Kell Brook was getting hit with some big shots in the 5th that got his right orbital bone broken. Now, at first glance, I thought that Brook was not in enough trouble for the fight to be stopped, but after further review, since it was a broken orbital bone, I do feel that it actually was a good stoppage. So Boxing world, was it a good stoppage or bad stoppage by the referee in the GGG vs. Brook fight? Feel free to leave a comment at the bottom of this post.
