Golovkin beats Kell Brook after one of the fights of the year in my opinion, while it lasted. Coming into the fight many had predicted a win for 'GGG' and he obliged after one hell of a fight.

Brook knows the challenge that lays in front of him is an immense one and his preparation by all accounts has been the best of his career, now he’ll need to chalk in the best performance of his career to stand any chance.
Golovkin always looks to be well prepared and his trainer Abel Sanchez launched perhaps the only fighting words so far at today’s final press conference, when he made reference to Brook’s scientific approach in his training camp:
“It’s going to take more than a 10 week scientific experiment to beat Gennady Golovkin.”
Here’s what happened when the two squared off today:
