Golovkin’s 10th WBA title defense marks his return to Monaco at the Salles des Etoiles. Last March, the 31-year-old Kazakhstan native knocked out former title challenger Nobuhiro Ishida in the third round in Monaco.

Golovkin Golovkin (28-0, 25 knockouts) has stopped 15 opponents in a row and holds the highest KO percentage among all active major titleholders in boxing in addition to the highest in middleweight division history. Golovkin fought four times last year and scored four knockouts – including HBO-televised stoppages of middleweight contenders Matthew Macklin and Curtis Stevens – making himself a Fighter of the Year candidate in the eyes of many fans and members of the boxing media.

Adama (22-3, 16 KOs) previously challenged then-IBF middleweight titleholder Daniel Geale in March 2012, losing a competitive unanimous decision in Australia. Prior to that fight, the 33-year-old Chicago-based Ghanaian scored a ninth-round TKO over Russian veteran and former title challenger Roman Karmazin.
