Golovkin is an absolute powerhouse in the squared circle.

Gennady Golovkin stopped Curtis Stevens at the end of the eighth round to successfully defend the WBO and IBO middleweight crowns on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Golovkin (28-0, 25 KOs) constantly stalked the 28-year-old Stevens (25-4, 18 KOs) and floored the challenger with a ferocious left in the second.

The 5-foot-11 Golovkin ultimately landed 293 punches and badly defaced the 5-foot-7 Stevens.

Although courageous and brimming with testicular fortitude, Stevens was utterly overwhelmed and the bout needed to be called.

“My plan was to just box,” said Golovkin, 31, who earned a silver medal as a middleweight at the 2004 Summer Olympics. “I know I am champion. I know I am better.”

A ferocious and accurate slugger, Golovkin’s never once hit the canvas and has now recorded 15 consecutive knockouts.

Following the mismatch, “GGG” offered to throw fists with Sergio Martinez.

Regardless of who the menacing Russian scraps next, Gennady Golovkin is a “champion” and perhaps the most indomitable prizefighter today.
