Instead, Golovkin finds himself back in his adopted home in Southern California, where he's making a fraction of that potential payday to fight a gritty veteran contender with nothing to lose in a famous outdoor ring where insane things happen regularly.
Golovkin, boxing's longest-reigning active world champion, was supposed to headline a major HBO PPV event in a rematch with Canelo Alvarez on Saturday at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, but after Alvarez failed two Voluntary Anti-Doping Association-administered drug tests for the banned performance-enhancing drug clenbuterol in February, the fight was called off.
The champ is coming off his first blemish last September in a split-decision draw with Canelo Alvarez.
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.
Martirosyan started the bout in positive fashion but midway through the second round, Golovkin unleashed a barrage of punches from which there was no comeback for his 32-year-old opponent.
The former middleweight and junior middleweight champ expects his suspension to conclude after August 17 and wants to reschedule his second fight against Golovkin for September 15.
Martirosyan (36-4-1, 21 KOs), of nearby Glendale, California, lost by knockout for the first time.
"I'm ready any time", Golovkin said.

Kim Kardashian Unfollows Tristan Thompson On Instagram
Kardashian fans haven't forgotten and there's something he probably should know. "'On to the next one, '" one person wrote. He and the model was seen at a five-star hotel during one weekend when the Cleveland Cavaliers had a game in NY .
With the victory he now joins Bernard Hopkins for the division record of 20 successful title defences. We are very pleased to be showcasing him once again live and exclusive on BoxNation this Saturday night against Vanes Martirosyan.
It is one of the many things that happened during his career that prevented him from being as good as he believes he should have been.
Should Golovkin win impressively, he can look towards having a rematch with Jacobs.
The former super welterweight contender took the fight at middleweight with less than two weeks preparation, but he had been in training. "I am still the champion. guys come and take my belts".
As noted by Dan Rafael of ESPN, no fighter has defended more than 20 times in a row in the 160-pound class. Hopkins put together a streak of 20 that finished in 2005. I challenge anyone to come and take my belts. "Let's clean the division out".
As a result, Golovkin was forced to find an opponent on short notice and Martirosyan was the only one that a majority of the sanctioning bodies were willing to accept.
