Review: 2011-12-09, nice and fast knockout in the first round: three stars. The undefeated Gennady Golovkin, ranked as the No.13 middleweight in the world, entered the fight with a record of 21-0-0 while Lajuan Simon had a record of 23-3-2 (he is not ranked as he hasn’t fought since December 3, 2010). Golovkin vs Simon is valid for the WBA World and vacant IBO middleweight titles. Watch the video!
