Golovkin wins WBA interim title

28-year old 2003 World Amateur Middleweight champion and 2004 Olympic Silver Medalist Gennady Golovkin (19-0, 16 KO), 159, of Kazakhstan took a big step forward in his professional career and needed only a round to do it.  Colombia’s 22-year old Milton Nunez (21-2-1, 19 KO), 159, was simply outclassed and run over. 

While the opponent was less than notable, the win gives Golovkin a WBA Middleweight belt and sets him up for bigger things.  Whether that will mean an opportunity to face the WBA’s other notable Middleweight titlist, Felix Sturm, remains to be seen but, based on his background, Golovkin must be considered a live, developing threat to the legitimate Middleweight Champion of the World Sergio Martinez.
