Gennady Golovkin equaled the record of 20 straight world middleweight title defenses with a devastating second-round knockout of Vanes Martirosyan Saturday to retain his WBA and WBC belts. Golovkin ended the fight with a vicious series of right and left combinations that floored the heavy underdog Martirosyan, who appeared doomed from the outset of the hastily arranged fight at the StubHub Center. Golovkin, who is boxing's longest-reigning current world titleholder, is now unbeaten in 39 fights, 34 by knockout.The 31-year-old Martirosyan, who normally fights at light middleweight, was completely outclassed as he stepped up a division to Golovkin.
