The Kazakhstan professional boxer finished 26 of his bouts with KOs. This takes his knockout percentage rate to 89.65% and makes Golovkin to holder of the greatest KO ratio in middleweight championship history, 1st among all the active current and former champions, and 3rd in the overall championship history. He has never been knocked down or knocked out in over 375 fights, both as a professional and amateur.

Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko, who was given the 1st place in the ranking, holds the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO titles in heavyweight.

Russian boxer Sergey Kovalev, the WBO world champion in light heavyweight, rounded up the Top 3 of the ranking.

On February 2 in Monaco GGG defended his WBA and IBO titles for the tenth time by TKOing Osumanu Adama (22-4, 16 KO). It marked Golovkin's 29th win in the professional boxing ring. The middleweight Tyson, as he is often called, has 26 KOs in his record.
