Live scorecards on WBN: Golovkin v Monroe / Gonzalez v Sosa

Phil Jay 16/05/2015

WBN will be scoring live on site this Saturday night as formidable middleweight Gennady Golovkin defends his WBA ‘super’ and IBO middleweight titles against Willie Monroe Jr.

The 33 year-old, who has been voted WBN Fighter of the Year by the readers two years in a row, aims to record a 20th straight knockout against the American and is an overwhelming favourite to do just that.

Kazakh Golovkin has amassed a standout 32-0 C.V with 29 stoppages, amounting to a KO ratio of over 90 percent, making moves towards fighting the likes of Miguel Cotto and Canelo Alvarez.

Challenger Monroe, 28, recently claimed victory in the first ever Boxcino tournament held by promoters Banner and will be pushing to overthrow Golovkin in what would be a massive upset if ‘The Mongoose’ could pull it off.

In the co-feature, rising pound for pound star Roman ‘Chocolatito’ Gonzalez puts his WBC flyweight belt on the line against former world title holder Edgar Sosa as the Nicaraguan bids to extend his own superb undefeated run to 43-0.

Gonzalez himself boasts an 85 percent KO ratio with 36 knockouts and has won world title belts at every weight class he has competed in.
