Gennady Golovkin 22-0 (19 KOs) vs. Makoto Fuchigami 19-6 (10 KOs)
Golovkin entered as the # 9 middleweight in the world according to The Ring Magazine. Fuchigami, who was as high as a 30/1 betting underdog, was unranked by the same publication.
It was the first fight for Fuchigami outside his native Japan.
Golovkin came to the ring to an instrumental version of "Seven Nation Army" by The White Stripes.

Fuchigami pawed with a jab and occasionally tried to land the left hand. Golovkin did very little for much of the opening round before coming on with power shots in the final moments. A cut opened over the right eye of Fuchigami in the final seconds that would bleed down into the eye for the remainder of the bout. Golovkin controlled Round 2 against Fuchigami, who fought much of the round with his hands down. A right hand put Fuchigami down on his backside at 2:10 of Round 2. He was up quickly and action continued. Although Fuchigami was on wobbly legs, he evaded to get through the round. A left hook followed by a right hand in Round 3, sent Fuchigami down in a corner. He was able to get to his feet and was allowed to continue. A followup barrage from Golovkin, however, caused the referee to step in and wave an end to the bout as the challenger was against the ropes and taking punches.
