The crowd waited in anticipation as the women’s tournament ended and the officials set up for the main event, Triple GGG vs Martirosyan. Fans cheered as the announcers spoke over the loud speaker and introduced the fighters onto the stage. Martirosyan walked into the ring first as Triple GGG followed.
The action began, as Triple GGG gave his opponent, Martirosyan, jabs to the upper and lower body. The audience was in awe as Martirosyan responded with a right-left hook. This did little to nothing to Triple GGG as he responded by hitting his opponents midsection. This weakened Martirosyan as he moved along the ring. After a few more hits to and from the upper and lower body Triple GGG went for the jugular and knocked out Martirosyan in the second round.
Fans chanted with joy as the middleweight Champion of the World retrieved to his throne and proved once again why he is a force to be reckoned with.
