Golovkin vs Adama results: Undercard fights from Monte Carlo

The fights are underway in Monaco on today's Golovkin-Adama card. Follow this post for updated results, reactions, and recaps as the fights conclude.

Jarrod Fletcher UD-12 Max Bursak

The worst was saved for last, as Australia's Jarrod Fletcher pulled some great acting in this one, enough to convince the referee to dock points and the judges to give him the fight. Fletcher is now 18-1 (10 KO), while Bursak falls to 29-2-1 (12 KO). Scores were 114-112, 115-111, and 115-111.

Junior Makabu TKO-2 Ruben Mino

Well, this was pretty fascinating to look at, as Makabu is a properly-conditioned professional cruiserweight and Mino was a little fat guy:


I'm not trying to insult Mino (20-1, 20 KO), who came here to fight and threw what he had, but Makabu (16-1, 15 KO) felt him out for a round and then realized this was stupid, so he flattened him in the second. Mino got up against all logic or odds, which seemed to more annoy Makabu than anything, so Junior stuck him with a short left hand that really finished it moments later.

Rey Loreto KO-3 Nkosinathi Joyi

A big upset, but not as shocking as it might seem on paper. This is two straight big wins for Loreto (18-13, 10 KO), who beat Pornsawan Porpramook by technical decision last August, and he might just be blossoming into a legitimate contender. His record is deceiving and he's only 23 years old. Joyi (24-3, 17 KO) has been past his prime for a couple fights now, and he's 31, which is generally speaking getting pretty old for The Little Guys. Joyi was hurt pretty badly at the end of round two, and then laid pure out by a massive left hand from Loreto in the third to end the fight.

Roman Belaev UD-12 Dean Byrne

Scores were 120-106, 119-109, and 119-109. I wasn't actively scoring because I was cleaning a bit at the same time, but the fight wasn't competitive and I don't know that Byrne won a round, which the official scores reflected. The Irishman was gutsy and battled hard, but he was totally outclassed by Belaev, who remains undefeated at 14-0 (10 KO), while Byrne falls to 17-3-1 (6 KO) and is now 2-3-1 in his last six fights.
