Gennady Golovkin '2 Days' Gets a Record HBO Rating

VENICE, CA - Boxing’s fastest rising star, middleweight world champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin continues to impress in-and -out of the ring with record numbers for his television ratings.
 
This week HBO announced that it’s “2Days: Gennady Golovkin” documentary feature surrounding Golovkin’s knockout victory of Gabriel Rosado on JANUARY 19 was the highest rated ever of it’s acclaimed series with over three million total viewers.
 
Additionally, record numbers of viewers watched across Europe and Asia as Golovkin dismantled top rated middleweight contender Matthew Macklin on JUNE 29 in a bout, which also drew over 1.1 million viewers on HBO.
 
“We’re very excited that boxing fans in the US and across the globe are tuning in to Gennady’s fights and his 2Days documentary in record numbers. HBO did a terrific job capturing the unique elements which took place leading up to the Rosado fight which made for a compelling feature,” said Tom Loeffler, Managing Director of K2 Promotions.
 
“Gennady just returned home to Germany from a fantastic week as the guest of honor in Monte Carlo for the finals of the Million Dollar Super 4 Tournament where he was hosted by Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene of Monaco.”
 
Golokvin’s knockout of Macklin was his third title fight of the year and raised his record to 27-0-0 with 24 knockouts as he defended both his WBA and IBO Middleweight Titles. It also raised his knockout ratio to 88.89%, highest among all active titleholders in the sport.
 
“We’ve said from the beginning of the year that Gennady would fight five times this year and we’re planning his next two bouts,” said Loeffler. “He is anxious to return the ring and to continue providing fans with the spectacular performances they’ve grown accustomed to seeing from him.”
