Absolute World Super Middleweight Champion Saul Avalres (58-2-2; 39 KOs) after victoriesover Gennady Golovkin (42-2-1; 37 KOs) said he needed surgery on his hand. BoxingNews24 quoted him as saying :
"I need surgery on my left arm. But I'm fine. I'm a warrior, that's why I'm here. My arm hurts a lot, I can't even hold a glass of water.
I was not surprised by Golovkin's activity in the last rounds. I know him, he has good genetics. Gennady is a strong boxer, so I'm not surprised," he said.
