Golovkin vs Adama results: GGG dominates again, stops Adama in seven rounds

Al Bello

Gennady Golovkin did about as expected today in Monte Carlo, outclassing a tough but overmatched Osumanu Adama.

There was never much hope that Osumanu Adama would upset or even be competitive against Gennady Golovkin, and he was not, as Golovkin was far too much for the Ghanaian today in Monte Carlo, retaining his WBA middleweight title via seventh round stoppage.

In all honesty, the fight wasn't even very entertaining, despite Golovkin (29-0, 26 KO) being in pretty good form and scoring three knockdowns before referee Luis Pabon finally stopped the fight with a still-standing Adama taking unnecessary punishment in a fight that had long since concluded in all reality. Adama (22-4, 16 KO) tried to use his reach and move around the ring, but he came out with what seemed like nervous legs, and was down on a balance issue near the end of round one.

Given what was expected of the fight, it was a bit of an underwhelming performance from Golovkin, which is not GGG's fault. It's just the hype behind him and the way he's so savagely finished off better opponents than this. Adama did his part to keep it from being spectacular, trying his best to stay out of Golovkin's wheelhouse, and doing a decent job of surviving longer than he would have if he'd tried at all to mix it up.

All in all, it was sort of a par for the course, easy day in the ring for Golovkin, and there's nothing wrong with that. He took what Adama gave him in there and didn't try to press at all. He did his job, retained his belt, and now moves forward.
