Golovkin-Macklin Close For 6/29, Both Agree To Fight

WBA/IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (26-0, 23KOs) is likely to defend his titles against Matthew Macklin (29-4, 20KOs), subject to contracts, on June 29th in the main event of an HBO televised tripleheader in New York. Golovkin is blowing through the division like a tornado and the Kazakhstan bomber's reputation that he has become one of the most avoided men at 160-pounds. He already stopped Gabe Rosado and Nobuhiro Ishida since the start of the year.

It will be Macklin's third world title fight in his last four, a controversial defeat to Felix Sturm and an 11th round loss to Sergio Martinez doing much to enhance his reputation. But he will be up against it if he takes the fight with Golovkin, who has not waited on the judges' scorecards since 2008. The busy 'GGG' has already stopped Gabriel Rosado and Nobuhiro Ishida since the turn of the year.

[QUOTE=Mikhnienko;13213156]Ndam backed out of several fights with Golovkin and ultimately gave up his belt rather than unify with him. He obviously doesnt hold the same opinion you do. Quillin's power and counter punching was too much for him, Gena would…

[QUOTE=DoktorSleepless;13213176]N'dam went life in death with 5'4 pressure fighter. Golovkin destroys him.[/QUOTE] Speaking of which Lou Dibella signed Khurtsidze and he hasn't fought since he's been out of the ring for a year and a half now. Khurtsidze would give…
