Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs) will hope to tie Bernard Hopkins’ record at middleweight 20 continuous title guards. It would have been decent if Golovkin could have tied the record by confronting Canelo Alvarez, yet he was flown on two separate medication tests by VADA for clenbuterol on February 16 and February 20, and he hauled out of the May 5 rematch with Triple G before the Nevada State Athletic Commission could suspend him.
Martirosyan (36-3-1, 21 KOs) is a decent substitute for Canelo, given that there was just 3 weeks to go at the time before the battle. The battle was moved from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada to the StubHub Center in Carson, California to exploit GGG’s notoriety in Southern California. Martirosyan doesn’t contemplate the 27-year-old Canelo and his reason for his two positive tests for clenbuterol. Canelo faulted his positive tests for having eaten corrupted meat. Golovkin still anticipates battling Canelo in a rematch on September 15, as long as he beats Martirosyan on September 15. What stays to be seen is whether Canelo will enlist in the World Boxing Council’s Clean Boxing Program before then so he can be tried week after week for execution upgrading drugs [PEDs] in the following three months previously he begins his preparation camp for the September rematch with Golovkin.
Martirosyan has never tried positive for PEDs since he handed star not long after battling about the 2004 Olympics for the U.S. Martirosyan should have the capacity to contend energetically for an entire 12 rounds for him to have the capacity to survive the quick pace Golovkin will probably be setting in this battle. The shortcoming in Martirtosyan’s amusement is he blurs after the initial 4 rounds. He was a decent beginner warrior, however as an expert, Martirosyan has never possessed the capacity to make the change in accordance with the more drawn out battles.
