WBC middleweight champion, Gennady Golovkin has built a mighty impressive undefeated career record of 37 victories and 33 KO´s, and now it’s time to put it all to the test against Santos Saul Alvarez Barragan, better known as “Canelo” (49-1-1) at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on September 16th.
“GGG” began his eye catching pro career on May 6, 2006 and from that moment his fists proved busy, winning one victory after another, to become the World Boxing Council champion, first as interim monarch and later as The absolute king of 160 pound.
Gennady GGG Golovkin is readying and steadying for the singular most important commitment of his career, in defending his crown against Saul “Canelo”Alvarez, in a brilliantly match clash that the public has been clamouring for, since “Canelo” became the king of the middleweights after defeating Puerto Rican Miguel Cotto.
“I want to win this fight because this triumph will propel me into history . I want to be remembered in the same breath as: Sugar Ray Leonard. I recall and aclaim many great middleweight champions like Carlos Monzon, Sugar Ray Leonard, Marvin Hagler, Bernard Hopkins. There are now new stories, new times and a new era for us. There are many great new stories to be told of this tremendous division, via action.”
