Extends KO streak to 19
By Alex Pierpaoli
As is our tradition here, if we live-tweeted an event we like to post a recap afterwards for any of you anti social-media types. So here is a chronological recounting of our live-tweets from the recliner watching LIVE on HBO, made slightly more grammatical and a little bit less hashtaggie.
don't forget @TalkinBoxing's #GGGMurray post fight show six minutes after the fight ends over at http://www.BillyCBoxing.com
Golovkin looks a lot smaller than
perhaps not quite as aggressive here than in recent fights... GGG landing
heavily in final minute
Please Luis Pabon, don't fuck this up... #GGGMurray
Good second round for
he swats Golovkin on his way in and ties him up in close #BusterDouglasish
Golovkin keeps trying the uppercut but hasn't gotten it to
chin yet; GGG lands decent right towards end of 3rd #GolovkinMurray
Huge overhand right lands on the face of
in the fourth; big right by Triple G to the waist of Murray;
Murray in a retreat & down...
a nasty body shot put
on his knees. And now he's down again... The wheels are coming off for Martin
Martin Murray showing a tremendous amount of grit in rd 5, breathing through a mashed & bleeding nose, under attack but fighting back hard
At start of sixth Golovkin has some redness around his cheekbones otherwise he looks like he took a light jog around the block #GGGMurray
Golovkin just landed the same looping overhand left (?!) that flattened Rubio and
took it, didn't quite land flush
end might be coming here in the 8th, Golovkin blasting away with both hands,
Murray trying to
circle away, bleeding heavily from the nose
determined effort from
his corner tells him if he catches Golovkin on his way in he can win. He has
done so & it hasn't worked yet
Another knockdown scored by Golovkin. This one off a right that puts
Murray flat on his back.
He's gonna continue. Eleventh round now...
Ref. Pabon steps in to halt the punishment when Golovkin hammers
Murray in neutral corner.
No one has extended Golovkin this far. Impressive
Triple G interviews are charming in their word-salad sorta way #GGGMurray
