The Mighty Gennady Golovkin (GGG)

Saturday October 17, in front of 20,548 rabid fans at Madison Square Garden, Golovkin methodically beat down a game David Lemieux to unify the Middleweight titles. Saturday’s stoppage of Lemieux marked Golovkin’s 21st straight KO and his 15th successful defense of his titles. You got to give credit to Lemieux who unlike other fighters stepped up to face the devastating puncher in GGG.

With his victory on Saturday, GGG and the rest of the boxing world will have their eyes on the November 21, 2015 battle, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez vs Miguel Cotto for the WBC World middleweight title.

Lou DiBella has made it known to the boxing world that he has no interest in the match up between current WBC middleweight champion, Sergio Martinez and hard hitting rising star Gennady Golovkin. “No way Golovkin doesn’t draw a dime!” said DiBella about a possible match with Martinez. Which is interesting being his fighter, Martinez was given a huge opportunity to fight a big name in Julio Caesar Chavez Jr. The way I see it, without fighting a big name like Chavez, Martinez would not do well fighting a Murray in the states. That is why the April 27 fight between Martinez – Murray will take place in Argentina where Martinez has a bigger fan base.

Come on Lou, don’t you think the GGG hype train is far more lucrative than say a fight with a relatively unknown Martin Murray?
