    Golovkin Defeats Geale By TKO; Jennings Wins

    NEW YORK, NY – Gennady “GGG” Golovkin claimed another victim Saturday. Making his debut in “The Big Room” at Madison Square Garden, Golovkin defeated Australia’s Daniel Geale by third round TKO. Although Golovkin was largely favored in the bout Geale was expected to present his toughest challenge to date. A viable, legitimate, middleweight with fast hands,  Geale was expected to be a real threat to the Kazakhstan born champion’s reign. It didn’t quite turn out that way. Taking control from the opening bell, Golovkin kept Geale at bay with a steady jab. Geale managed to slip in a few sneaky straight rights but they did nothing to stop the Golovkin onslaught. Unfortunately for Geale, he…

Part of the deal stipulates that Blackwell will be heavily promoted on a premier cable network, which no doubt will include more promotional opportunities for Blackwell and his fights.

UFC On FOX: Lawler, Johnson Win In San Jose

By Brandon Stubbs, Contributing Writer UFC brought the octagon to San Jose and found some new contenders after all the action was said and done. A New “King” Found? In an interesting tilt in the lightweight division, former Strikeforce vet and San Jose native Josh Thomson took on late replacement Bobby “King” Green. The fight seemed like it would have more talking in it than action, with Green doing most of the yapping in the cage. The fight was close with only the 2nd round having a clear winner…Green. During the round, he was able to maintain cage control and never gave Thomson a chance to get in any sort of rhythm. In the end,…
