BLH Recaps: Golovkin KO-3 Macklin / Oosthuizen D-10 Gonzales / Nelson UD-10 Cuello

Gennady Golovkin

"My perfect position for that body shot. I want this fight (vs. Sergio Martinez). I felt great in the ring, he never hurt me. It was an easy fight for me. I want to fight against soon. Any top fighter, any champion, any belt holder....anywhere."

Matthew Macklin

"He's the best I ever fought. He never really let me get started. It was a great shot he landed, the left hook to the body is personally one of my favorites. I tip my hat to him; he's a great champion. He has clubbing, solid power and you can feel the weight of every punch he throws."

Thomas Oosthuizen

"I felt sluggish the first two rounds and then I found my rhythm. I thought I won the fight. I'd give him an immediate rematch if he wanted. I want to come back to fight in America soon and I want to fight Mikkel Kessler."

Brandon Gonzales

"I feel good. I absolutely won the fight. I landed the harder punches and out-boxed him. I did everything I had to do, unfortunately, the judges didn't think so. We'll go back to the drawing board and figure out where to go from there."

Willie Nelson

"I feel great. He's tougher than I thought but I still think I won convincingly. The cuts (both eyes) bothered me but I fought through it. I want to fight all the top 154-pound fighters and this was another step in that direction."
