On October 17, 2015, Gennady ‘GGG’ Golovkin, (33-0-0, 30 KOs), will bring “The Drama Show” to Madison Square Garden in New York, New York to face the biggest test of his professional boxing career. Golovkin will be put on a collision course with the rugged David Lemieux, (34-2-0, 31 KOs) in his first HBO Pay-Per-View appearance as Golovkin’s WBC interim, WBA and IBO middleweight titles will be on the line, and Lemieux will be putting up his IBF middleweight title.
This middleweight unification title fight should test Golovkin’s boxing skills as I expect Lemieux to be right in his face throwing bombs to the delight of the Madison Square Garden crowd. Gennady Golovkin is already considered one of the best fighters in the sport, heck, some even feel he is the best in the sport, but if he can beat a tough David Lemieux on October 17, it will only increase his position as one of the top fighters in the sport.
Since his introduction to the boxing world about 2 to 3 years ago, Gennady ‘GGG’ Golovkin has taken the boxing world by storm with devastating knock out after knock out that got the boxing world buzzing.
He is currently riding a 20 fight knock out streak dating back to November of 2008 while breaking the great ‘Iron’ Mike Tyson’s knock out record in the process. Golovkin has destroyed fighters such as Matthew Macklin, Curtis Stevens, Daniel Geale, and Martin Murray. In his last fight, Golovkin out-willed the savvy Willie Monroe, Jr. to record his 20th straight stoppage.
Golovkin now has his sights set on David Lemieux who is sure to bring the drama to him in front of a packed Madison Square Garden house.
David Lemieux is well known for stepping to his opponents and landing power punching from start to finish in fights. Lemieux will be looking to not only bring ”The Drama Show” to Golovkin, but increase his status as one of the very best middleweights in the sport. Lemieux has knocked out 3 of his last 4 opponents, and captured the IBF middleweight title in his last fight by outpointing a very good Hassan N’Dam.
In his fight with N’Dam, Lemieux dominated N’Dam as he scored knockdowns on him in rounds 2, 5, and 7. Lemieux treated his hometown crowd to a unanimous decision beating of N’Dam en route to capturing to IBF middleweight title.
So now the stage is set for Gennady Golovkin and David Lemieux to put it all on the line in a unification fight in New York on HBO Pay-Per-View. Golovkin and Lemieux are both knockout kings so Boxing World, get ready for an all-action showdown!
