“GGG” defends belts against Welterweight Kell Brook

 

 

 

gennady-golovkin-boxingSeptember 1oth will be the battle of the two undefeated fighters when Gennady Golovkin (35-0, 32kos) fights United Kigdom’s Kell Brook (36-0,25kos).  The fight will take place at the O2 arena in London. This will be the second straight fight that Golovkin will face an undefeated fighter. He defeated previously undefeated Dominic Wade February 10th of this year.

 

This fight comes as a surprise to most because GGG was in negotiations with Chris Eubank jr about a possible fight in the fall.  Matchroom boxing promoter Tommy Hearn  was the promoter behind trying to make that fight happen and he also was finalizing a deal with Kell Brook and Jessie Vargas.  Eubank jr just like Canelo Alverez, and Billy Joe Sanders all ducked out of fights with Golovkin. We have no details on why the Brook-Vargas fight fell through and didn’t happen.GGGbrook

Golovkin and Brook will air on HBO in the United States and Skybox Office pay-per-view in the United Kingdom.

“I’m very excited to be fighting in front of the great British boxing fans and promise another ‘big drama show’ against Kell Brook,” Golovkin said.

Said Brook: “This is the fight and the moment I have been waiting for for some time. We’ve tried and tried to lure the best to come and fight me and now we’ve got the best of the best, the No. 1 pound-for-pound fighter in the world is coming to the U.K.

“When this fight got offered to me I accepted within minutes and I can’t wait. Everyone knows I’m a huge welterweight and I know I will carry my speed and accuracy and even more power through the weights. This is the ultimate fight, one of the biggest international fights the country has seen in many years. You have seen some huge names run from GGG but I’m running to him. I’m a special fighter and I will show the world on Sept. 10.” Will Kell Brook remain undefeated? or will GGG win his 17th straight title defense and get his 23rd straight knockout.
