Gennady Golovkin is the most avoided fighter in the sport and, instead of hanging around waiting for the phone to ring, “GGG” stays active and takes on anyone brave enough to step inside the ring with him.
Golovkin (32-0, 29 KOs) defends his IBO and WBA middleweight world titles against 2014 Boxcino tournament winner Willie Monroe Jr. (19-1, 6 KOs) this Saturday at the Forum in Inglewood, California.
Golovkin is coming into this fight with a 19 consecutive knockout streak, making him not only one of the most exciting fighters in the world, but also drawing early comparisons to Mike Tyson.
Golovkin is clearly gunning for a mega fight with either Canelo Alvarez or Miguel Cotto in 2016. In the meantime, the boogeyman from Kazakhstan will look for another dominating performance against Monroe.
