Triple G is facing the southpaw Willie Monroe Jr. (19-1, 6 KO), on May 16 at The Forum in Los Angeles. The fight opens on May 17 at 8:00 am by the Astana time.
Boxingnewsonline observed Golovkin’s potential to join the middleweight icons Carlos Monzon (87-3-9, 59 KOs), Marvin Hagler (62-3-2, 52 KOs) and Bernard Hopkins (55-7-2, 32 KOs) thanks to his patience, brutal power and aggressive boxing style. If Golovkin wins his 33rd fight in the professional ring, he will repeat Monzon’s record of successfully defended middleweight titles.
