The Big Drama Show was on a mission in his DAZN debut to get the message across to Canelo Alvarez that he is looking in his direction for the trilogy fight. Fans have mounted in the boxing mecca during the month of June twice to witness early ends to main events.

In the wake of the Joshua vs Ruiz upset, New York's Madison Square Garden delivered yet another one sided main event. Gennady Golovkin showed no ring rust in his return to the ring with a fourth-round knockout victory over previously undefeated Canadian Steve Rolls at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night.

Golovkin (39-1-1, 35 KOs) took his time feeling out his opponent in the first few rounds. Rolls (19-1, 10 KOs) gained his limited confidence and started to land a few nice shots early, including a sharp left that snapped Golovkin's head back in the second round. GGG is a tactician when it comes to cutting off the ring and breaking down his opponents defense.

In the fourth round, GGG caught Rolls with an unorthodox left hook over the top of Rolls' guard, which landed on the top of his head.

That shot stunned Rolls and left him on wobbly legs as GGG stepped in and set up a solid left hook that dropped Rolls to the canvis face first. This fight was nothing less than a statement fight for GGG, as he made it clear his intentions afterwards.

Golovkin made it clear who he wants next.  

"Everybody knows. Everybody knows," Golovkin said. "First guys, of course, I'm ready for Canelo in September. I'm ready to come out. Just ask him. ... If you want a big drama show, please tell him."
