Martirosyan himself made the point after the fight at the StubHub Center ended with him being counted out after a flurry of blows from Golovkin early in the second round.
"The first round I was just looking, because I know he is a good fighter", the 36-year-old Golovkin said.
Martirosyan, who normally fights at light middleweight, will be stepping up a division to face the hard-hitting Golovkin, who is unbeaten through 38 fights, including 33 by knockout. I want to have as many fights as possible. "Of course, I want to", Golovkin said. Canelo was suspended for six months on April 18 by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, and will be eligible to fight in August. He didn't become the WBA's full-fledged belt-holder until 2014, then added the IBF title in 2015 and the WBC championship when Alvarez relinquished it in 2016.
When Martirosyan was first rumored as one of the potential Alvarez replacements, his inclusion on that list was viewed as a joke to many. But he's suspicious that Alvarez may have been doing something to bulk up to middleweight for their first fight, and angry that he was caught doping for the second.
"There is a question mark about whether there will be a fight in September or not", Golovkin told ESPN.
A win by Golovkin and he will tie Bernard Hopkins for most consecutive middleweight title defenses at 20.
However this toe to toe game plan by Martirosyan while an admirable one in its courage - was never going to bode well for him in the end. "I see why he's trying to get that extra edge", said Martirosyan, referencing Alvarez's failed drug test in March.
Golovkin vs. Martirosyan can be seen on HBO.
Golovkin has repeated the record in this weight category, having defended the world champion title in 20 duels in a row.
Prior to Golovkin knocking him out, Martirosyan had lost only 12-round decisions to Lara (25-3-2, 14 KOs), WBC super welterweight champ Jermell Charlo (30-0, 15 KOs) and former WBO/WBA 154-pound champ Demetrius Andrade (25-0, 16 KOs). His camp has already started the negotiations, as they have announced that they are moving on and that the Alvarez rematch has only a 10% chance of happening.
That fight seems unlikely to happen, since Alvarez's suspension will be up in time for a rematch in September. Fighting WBO champion Billy Joe Saunders in England might pay well, but it is not likely to match HBO PPV.
On the other hand, the rising costs and subdued return on equity reflect some of the challenges Flint still faces. They are due to present their new strategy at or before their interim results in early August.
