MONACO (AP) - WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin beat Osumanu Adama by TKO in the seventh round, his impressive speed and accuracy flooring his challenger three times on Saturday.

The Kazakh fighter successfully defended his belt for the 10th time to improve to 29-0, including 26 KOs. The bout was the mismatch it appeared on paper, as Adama was ranked 12th by the WBA.

''I feel terrific, I'm very happy with my performance,'' Golovkin said in a statement from K2 Promotions. ''From the opening round I was comfortable with the fight and felt good about my power and the pace of the fight. He was a tough opponent but I was never hurt.''

Golovkin's powerful right sent the Ghana boxer to the canvas at the end of the first round. A quick left hook knocked Adama down in the sixth, forcing an eight count. Golovkin put Adama down again with a left jab in the seventh for another count before a left hook prompted the referee to stop the fight.

Adama's record dropped to 22-4.

Golovkin has scored 16 straight knockouts and is seeking a top boxer for his next bout. ''I want to fight Sergio Martinez to prove who's the best middleweight,'' Golovkin said in the ring.

Promoter Tom Loeffler said they ''have offers out to three HBO-approved fighters for April 26 at Madison Square Garden.''
