Gennady Golovkin vs. Curtis Stevens (poster).jpg

Gennady Golovkin 159 lbs beat Curtis Stevens 159 lbs by RTD at 3:00 in round 8 of 12

  • Stevens was down in the second round. Golovkin came forward with power shots and pressured the shorter Stevens from that point on. Stevens wore earmuffs with his gloves, going into a mostly defensive posture but still taking a serious beating for the next six rounds. The bout was wisely stopped between rounds to prevent Stevens from further punishment.
  • Golovkin's purse was $400,000; Stevens' was $290,000 [1]
