Middleweight king and pound for pound star of boxing, Gennady Golovkin said he’s looking forward to competing on UK soil in the fall as the Kazakh went head-to-head with upcoming opponent Kell Brook for a second time.
The pair met in New York a few days ago, even taking in the sights of Times Square, but this time around it was GGG and his K2 team greeted by Matchroom and promoter Eddie Hearn – welcoming them to London.
At the packed press conference, a relaxed GGG stated that he held Brook in the highest regard and promised those who purchased tickets and tuned in on TV will be in for a treat on September 10.
“I’m very excited to be in London. Thanks to Sky TV and HBO for allowing me to give the great UK fans an amazing event,” said Golovkin.
“I respect Kell Brook and he has a very strong team but I believe I will bring big event and a ‘Big Drama Show.’
“Kell is a true champion and my biggest test so far but this is business and I have no fear.
“I’m ready to box and do the business to win,” he added.
Brook, 30, has a massive task on his hands in moving up two weight divisions to face the hardest puncher in the sport and will hope to avoid a similar fate to what happened when rival Amir Khan took on Canelo Alvarez last May.
