WBC interim middleweight Champion, Gennady Golovkin, who’s preparing to fight Willie Monroe Jr, on May 16th at the Inglewood Forum, Los Angeles, passed the WBC 30 days pre-weigh in minus any problems registering 169 lbs on the scales.

After easily stopping Marco Antonio Rubio last year, Gennady traveled to Monte Carlo and defeated Martin Murray in another great display to cement his pound for pound status.

Monroe Jr, aged 28, has a record of 20 fights with only one loss. He’s won 9 fights in a row after being defeated by Darnell Boone in March 2011.
