As expected, over in New York, at the legendary Madison Square Garden venue, the exciting Gennady Golovkin extended his unbeaten run.

The WBA middleweight champion stopped his latest challenger, Curtis Stevens, in the eighth round to extend his record to 28-0 with 25 by way of knockout.

Stevens, tipped by many to give Golovkin a hard night was never really in the contest and was given a good working over, during the eight rounds Stevens hit the canvas in the second round, following a huge left hook and just managed to beat the count.

The onslaught, from Golovkin, continued with the champion catching Stevens with numerous head and body punches and it when Golovkin had Stevens pinned against the ropes for the majority of round eight, his corner did the right thing in pulling their man out of the contest.

Golovkin remains the hottest property in the middleweight division and is next expected to climb into the ring in February 2014, in Monte Carlo.
