Golovkin Halts Stevens in Eight




Jerry Glick reporting from ringside: Gennady Golovkin, 159.6, stopped Brooklyn’s Curtis Stevens, 159.2, at the end of the eighth frame after dishing out a brutal beating as the eighth came to a close. Stevens never stopped trying. He brought out cheers from his fans among the 4618 people who paid to watch this championship fight at the Theater at Madison Square Garden on a K2/Main Events show that was televised on HBO..

Stevens, 25-4 (18 KOs), mostly counterpunched, with many landing. A left hook from Golovkin, 28-0 (25 KOs), to the head dropped Stevens heavily in the second. Stevens survived the round, finishing it in his own corner. It took him a round to completely revive from that punch, but he did and fought back bravely until the punches accumulated and with a bloody nose, he was stopped after the eighth when trainer Andre’ Rozier told referee Harvey Dock to end the fight.
