Unbeaten WBA/IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (26-0, 23 KOs) scored a spectaular third round KO over Nobuhiro Ishida (24-9-2, 9 KOs) on Saturday night at the Salle d’Etoiles in Monte Carlo, Monaco. 50:1 betting favorite Golovkin took over in round two and knocked out Ishida cold with a massive right hand in round three. Time was 2:20. It was the first time Ishida has ever been stopped.

In a clash of unbeaten super middleweights, Edwin Rodriguez (23-0, 15 KOs) scored a ten round unanimous decision over Ezequiel Osvaldo Maderna (19-1, 13 KOs). It was a close fight (with a lot of clinching). Rodriguez was deducted a point in round eight for a low blow and another point for a punch behind the head in round nine, however Rodriguez also knocked down Maderna at the end of round nine. Scores were 96-92, 96-92, 95-92. Rodriguez will now face Denis Grachev on July 13 in the “Super 4” final.

In a light heavyweight bout, Denis Grachev (13-1-1, 8 KOs) won a ten round split decision over previously unbeaten two-division world champion Zsolt Erdei (33-1, 18 KOs). The 38-year-old Erdei schooled Grachev early, but Grachev increased the pressure and came on over the second half of the bout. Scores were 96-94 twice for Grachev, 96-94 for Erdei.

European light middleweight Sergey Rabchenko (23-0, 17 KOs) retained his title with a second round KO against Adriano Nicchi (20-4-2, 9 KOs). Rabchenko punished Nicchi throughout the bout, finishing matters with a left hand at 2:15 on the second stanza.

Cruiserweight Ilunga Makabu (13-1, 13 KOs) scored a third round TKO over previously unbeaten Tamas Lodi (9-0-1, 7 KOs). Makabu dropped Lodi in round three and finished him with his follow up barrage. Time was 1:21.

Unbeaten junior welterweight Kirill Relikh (13-0, 11 KOs) knocked out Paolo Gassani (16-4, 8 KOs) in the first round. Time was 2:02.
