Gennady Golovkin ready for third fight with Canelo Alvarez

Golovkin steamrolls Rolls in tune-up fight, now Canelo-GGG III?

Golovkin (39-1-1) took a little while to get going in NY, but he opened up a massive combination in the fourth round, ending with a vicious straight left that sent Rolls to the floor and stopped the contest. Andy Ruiz' shocking upset of Anthony Joshua last week, prompted the unheralded Rolls to speak of his chances with far more confidence than in previous weeks, months - leading up to the fight.

After a controversial drawn superfight against Canelo in 2017 was followed by that narrow points defeat past year, Golovkin now wants to take the Mexican's IBF, WBC and WBA middleweight titles.

Kazakh star Golovkin started landing consistently with his patented short punches and eventually put together the combination downing Rolls for good. Golovkin was taking his time in the second, tapping to the body and hooking well.

This marks the first fight for Golovkin under new trainer Johnathan Banks since splitting with long-time trainer Abel Sanchez back in April.

After edging a tight first round, Golovkin sized up his opponent before ending the contest with a minute of the fourth remaining.

Since that time, Canelo has fought twice, most recently adding the IBF Middleweight title in a decision victory over Daniel Jacobs in May. The wobbly-kneed Rolls staggered backwards and then tried unsuccessfully to get Golovkin in a clinch. "I told my coach, "OK I see it now, I see, I just need a little bit of time".

"It is my style to knock people out", said Golovkin, who once had a 23 knockout streak. "I'm ready for September, I'm ready for Canelo". Just ask him, I'm ready.

"If you want Big Drama Show, please tell him".

Golovkin (39-1-1, 35 KOs) made a number of key changes heading into the scheduled 12-round fight. The fight was Golovkin's DAZN debut as he signed a three-year, six-fight deal with the streaming service months ago.

"I come back to my knockout (ways)", he said. "Thank you so much to everyone who supports me, I hope you enjoyed the fight".
