It’s been a tumultuous road for Gennady Golovkin to Saturday night when he makes his 2018 debut and defends his WBA and WBC middleweight titles against late replacement Vanes Martirosyan at the Stubhub Center in Carson, CA.
His IBF title will not be on the line as the sanctioning body didn’t approve Martirosyan as an opponent.
Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs) was originally scheduled to once again fight Canelo Alvarez following their controversial draw in September. Alvarez ended up failing random drug tests in February and ultimately withdrew from the fight.

Golovkin was originally scheduled to fight Canelo Álvarez but after Álvarez failed two drugs tests for banned substances the bout was rearranged with Martirosyan in his place.

The unified middleweight champion still wanted to compete on May 5, but options were limited due to the short notice. Talks with Spike O’Sullivan fell through after the Irishman wasn’t happy with the money. Demetrius Andrade, Billy Joe Saunders and Jaime Munguia surfaced as possible replacements, but Golovkin ended up settling on Martirosyan.
Martirosyan (36-3-1, 21 KOs) will be coming up from junior middleweight and fighting at middleweight for the first time in his career. He comes not having fought in almost two years and lost two of his last three fights, to Erislandy Lara and Jermell Charlo.
A win by Golovkin and he will tie Bernard Hopkins for most consecutive middleweight title defenses at 20.
While not the most ideal situation, this is the best-case scenario considering the circumstances, and we still get to see one of the biggest names in the sport.
