Boxing’s next big thing is stepping into the squared circle for the 34th time TONIGHT (Sat., Oct. 17, 2015) inside “The World’s Most Famous Arena,” Madison Square Garden, in New York, N.Y., as Gennady Golovkin aims to fold power-punching Canadian David Lemieux on an HBO pay-per-view (PPV) main card that will begin around 9 p.m. ET.
It’s easy to see the reason “GGG” is a massive favorite to crumble the 26-year-old IBF Middleweight champion, especially when you consider he can do this.
Golovkin, 33, is the WBA, WBC “interim” and IBO Middleweight champion, who has been imposing his will on boxing’s 160-pound division for the last nine years. Of late, the Kazakh has made the likes of Willie Monroe Jr., Marco Antonio Rubio and Daniel Geale look silly.
His opponent, Lemieux, is not to be taken lightly. Lemiuex has won his last nine times out and most recently dispatched Hassan N’Dam N’Jikam for the vacant IBF title last May.
He’s also collected 31 knockout victories in 36 in-ring appearances.
To watch the PPV tonight, which costs between $50 and $60 depending on your cable provider, you can call up Comcast, AT&T, Time Warner,
