Boxing superstar and unified Middleweight world champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin, (35-0, 32 KOs) and undefeated British boxing star and Welterweight world champion “The Special One” Kell Brook, (36-0, 25 KOs) will hold a New York City press conference to formally announce their highly anticipated international showdown on Saturday, September 10 at The O2 Arena in London, England.
The world title clash will be televised on Sky Sports Box Office in the United Kingdom and live on HBO World Championship Boxing in the United States.
Golovkin is known as one of the most exciting, hardest-hitting, and most feared fighters in the world.
From recently selling out arenas in New York City (Madison Square Garden) and Los Angeles (The Fabulous Forum) in consecutive fights to his sponsorships with the JORDAN Brand, Apple, Samsung, and Bijan, Golovkin is one of the most marketable boxers in the world.
Golovkin’s record includes 22 straight knockouts in addition to 16 consecutive world title defenses. His 91.4 percent knockout ratio is the highest in boxing’s middleweight division history.
Britain’s pound-for-pound No. 1 fighter, Kell Brook, is out to shock the world when he steps up two weight divisions to take on the fearsome Gennady Golovkin.
The unbeaten Sheffield star achieved his childhood dream in August 2014 when he travelled to California to rip the IBF World Welterweight title from Ohio’s highly-rated and then-unbeaten Shawn Porter by majority decision.
He has since defended the title on three occasions, defeating Jo Jo Dan, Frankie Gavin and Kevin Bizier, all by stoppage.
