Gennady Golovkin is the current unified holder of the WBA, WBC, IBF and IBO middleweight titles. Nicknamed “GGG” and a native of Kazakhstan, the champion has something to say about his upcoming bout against Kell Brook of Great Britain.
According to Andrew Dickson of skysports, Golovkin said that he is not scared against Brook.
“I’m not scared and I understand my situation and my position”, GGG added. He also stated that his fight means business and that he respects boxing.
However, the Kazakh native cautioned that his fight would not be easy.
“This is the biggest test for me because Kell is a true champion and it is very serious business for us”, Golovkin said.
Gennady also mentioned his joy to fight in London and that he believes that he can give the fans an amazing performance.
Before his bout against Brook, Golovkin has been undefeated in 35 fights with 32 coming by way of knockouts. He is really a dangerous opponent for Kell, who is also undefeated in 36 fights with 25 knockouts. This is because Brook moved up two weight divisions just to fight him.
Gennady has earlier beaten Dominic Wade this year with an impressive second round knockout over the American. He has represented his country of Kazakhstan last 2004 Athens Olympics when he was just aged 22.
Meanwhile, Brook also had an impressive performance against his last opponent. He just beat Kevin Bizier of Canada with a knockout in the second round of their bout. Kell has nicknames of “The Special One” and “Special K”. Unlike GGG, Brook did not represent his country of Great Britain in the Olympics.
Gennady and Kell are scheduled to fight on September 10, 2016, at the O2 Arena in England.
At 34-years-old, Golovkin already has a great career and a win against Brook would further cement that.
