Kazakhstan boxer Gennady Golovkin, a stated WBA (World Boxing Association) world champion turned out to be one kilo heavier than an American Lajuan Simon, who is making a claim to win the WBA title, Tengrinews.kz reports, citing Allboxing.ru. The ceremony of weighing was held in Dusseldorf, Germany, where the main fight for the title will take place on the night of December 9th-10th. As a result Golovkin’s weight made up 71.9 kilos, and Simon weighted exactly 71 kilos. Championat.com reports that the vacant champion title of the International Boxing Organization (IBO) will be played off in this match as well. Golovkin, who has signed a contract with the Klichko brothers’ promoting company, said that this partnership will allow him to move to a new level. “I am happy that the match will take place. I am also glad to work with K2 promotion company. I am going to follow Klichko brothers and to become a successful boxer as they had become,” Kazakhstan sportsman said. Vladimir Klichko, the youngest Klichko brother, who could not take part in the fight against French Jean-Marc Mormeck on December 10 due to an illness, considers Golovkin the strongest middleweight boxer. He is also sure that Kazakhstan boxer will dominate the boxing squared ring in the nearest future.
