Martirosyan (36-4-1) stepped into the ring with GGG on less than three week's notice, agreeing to fight Golovkin after Irish middleweight Gary "Spike" O'Sullivan passed on the opportunity in favor of keeping a 4 May contest with Puerto Rico's Berlin Abreu in Los Angeles, which he won without any trouble.
Both Golovkin, born in Kazakhstan, and Martirosyan, born in Armenia, fight out of Southern California. GGG hasn't been in with a slick southpaw since he wiped out Willie Monroe, JR.in 2015, and the recent adversity he's faced against boxer-punchers Canelo and Jacobs may suggest that Andrade can be one of the more hard stylistic match-ups for Golovkin at 160.
In a bout hastily arranged after original opponent Canelo Alvarez failed a drugs test, Martirosyan - who had been out of the ring for two years - was no match whatsoever for Golovkin.
The two times he did fight for a 154-pound world title he lost decisions, to Demetrius Andrade for a vacant belt in 2013 and, in a rematch of a head-butt induced technical draw, to then-titlist Erislandy Lara in May 2016.
Late replacement fights are very unsafe because neither opponent is really ready to fight their opponent's style, they spend the majority of training camp focusing on a gameplan for another opponent but then the opponent either pulls out due to injury or a positive drug test.
According to CompuBox punch statistics, Golovkin landed 36 of 85 punches (43 percent) and Martirosyan, who admitted GGG was the hardest puncher he had ever faced, found the target on 18 of 73 (25 percent). I want to have as many fights as possible. Gennady Golovkin was without an opponent on May 5 until Vanes Martirosyan was allowed to step in (courtesy of ESPN) for the suspended Alvarez. "I want everyone", he said when asked who is next.
"This is my destiny fight", Martirosyan said at the final pre-fight press conference.

Vanes can pull off the upset if Golovkin is not familiar with his style, it would take the flawless gameplan and boxing IQ to dethrone fighter of Golovkin's caliber. Although he never admitted that he wanted the fight to end in a KO, it appears that as the first bell rung, thats all He wanted to do.
Also, Golovkin just plain loves to fight.

All of the information you need to catch Golovkin vs. Martirosyan from the opening bout can be seen below.
Yet the unspoken fear in the Golovkin promotional camp has less to do with the prospect of a shock defeat and more around the possibility that their boxer could suffer some kind of unfortunate mishap that would rule him out beyond September - such as a deep cut requiring stitches or a hand injury.
That fight seems unlikely to happen, since Alvarez's suspension will be up in time for a rematch in September.
