Australian boxer Daniel Geale proved no match for Gennady Golovkin, with the Kazakh champion stopping the contest within three rounds at the Madison Square Garden in New York on Saturday night.
Thirty-two year-old Golovkin who won the silver medal at the 2004 Summer Olympics quickly made his power felt opening up a cut over Geale's eye in the opening round. He followed that up by dropping Geale in the second round, before ending the contest with a flurry of punches in the third round. With Geale wobbly on his legs, the referee chose to halt the contest and give Golovkin the TKO win.
