Many hbo and even untelevised hbo undercards are televised in Poland and Russia.
The thing with Gennady Golovkin is that he is fighting in New York. Even though his opponent may not be HBO(or title) worthy, it is a chance to showcase Golovkin's skills and power. Many other eastern European fighters would rather fight in the safer environment of Germany but at least Golovkin is fighting abroad. This will increase his marketability on both sides of the Atlantic and create U.S. interest in a possible unification and lead to more major bouts and more money.
