Power is the universal language of combat sports. The average Joe and Jane likely won’t understand nor care about the boring intricacies of footwork, head movement, punch selection and defense, but everyone understands power.
Later tonight (Sat., Oct. 17, 2015), two men with truly Earth-shattering power will duke it out in the main event of a four-fight pay-per-view (PPV) from Madison Square Garden in New York, N.Y., with multiple legitimate Middleweight belts on the line. Gennady Golovkin, the Olympic silver medalist from Kazakhstan, takes on David Lemieux, a newly-minted champion with a dynamite punch.
MMAmania will deliver LIVE coverage of “Golovkin vs. Lemieux” later this evening, starting with the HBO pay-per-view (PPV) at 9 p.m. ET.
In the co-main event, the best boxer on the planet, Nicarguan wrecking machine Roman Gonzalez, faces former champion Brian Viloria in an intriguing Flyweight clash. Elsewhere on the card, Heavyweight Luis “The Real King Kong” Ortiz takes on Argentina’s Matias Ariel Vidondo and Tureano Johnson fights Eamonn O’Kane in an IBF title eliminator.
Heavy leather will be thrown, bells will be rung and quite a few brain cells will die valiant deaths.
Let’s see whose they’ll be:
Name: Gennady Golovkin
