Boxing's most dangerous fighter needed less than two full rounds to score his 22nd consecutive knockout, as Gennady Golovkin improved his record to 35-0 with a beatdown of Dominic Wade Saturday night in Los Angeles. Wade never had a chance from the opening bell and was knocked down three times by Golovkin - who is still waiting for a megafight against Canelo Alvarez.
Alvarez's WBC middleweight title will be on the line May 7th in a fight against Amir Khan. If Alvarez retains his title but does not face Golovkin next, he'll be forced to surrender the belt. Golovkin-Alvarez is the kind of superfight the sport dearly needs, but it remains to be seen if any major talent is brave enough to step in the ring with GGG.
