Gennady Golovkin's return to the ring was short and sweet as he knocked out Steve Rolls with 51 seconds remaining in the fourth round of their super middleweight fight Saturday night.

There were no titles on the line, and Triple G made sure there was no stunner like Andy Ruiz Jr.’s upset of Anthony Joshua for four heavyweight belts last weekend in the same Madison Square Garden ring. Golovkin looked slow and tentative, perhaps rusty from a layoff since September, until he began landing regularly in the fourth round.

That massive left decked Rolls, who struggled to get up and clearly was in no condition to continue. Golovkin (39-1-1, 37 knockouts) previously had Rolls in trouble in the round thanks to a series of strong and quick combinations that looked like vintage Triple G.
