Notes

Stevens was down in the second round. Golovkin came forward with power shots and pressured the shorter Stevens from that point on. Stevens wore earmuffs with his gloves, going into a mostly defensive posture but still taking a serious beating for the next six rounds. The bout was wisely stopped between rounds to prevent Stevens from further punishment.

Golovkin’s purse was $400,000; Stevens’ was $290,000
