Golovkin vs Proksa Showdown Heading To Sky Sports

Grzegorz Proksa’s WBA and IBO World middleweight title fight with Gennady Golovkin will be aired on Sky Sports 4HD at 8.30am on Sunday September 2.

European champ Proksa travels to New York to face the unbeaten Kazakhstan star, who fights in America for the first time. Golovkin has a formidable record of 20 KOs from 23 fights and is making the fourth defence of his WBA belt and the third of the IBO strap.

Proksa avenged the sole defeat on his record when he reclaimed his European strap against Kerry Hope in a rematch between the pair on July 7, with Welshman Hope getting stopped in the eighth round at the Motorpoint Arena Sheffield, the same venue Proksa had been stunned by losing a majority decision to Hope four months earlier.

The signs of a knockout night in the Big Apple are there, with the Surrey-based Pole claiming 21 of his 28 wins inside the distance, and the 27 year old is confident he can add Golovkin’s name to his KO record and return home with the belts.

“I have no doubt in my mind that I have the ability to knockout Golovkin,” said Proksa. “My opportunity to showcase my talents to the world has arrived and I’m not going to let it slip away.  This will be a difficult fight but I believe in myself to come out victorious and I’m going to bring an aggressive game plan for the fans.  I’m coming to the US to impress and take home the title.”

[QUOTE=Mick Higgs;12449840]I thought Felix Sturm was the WBA champion @ 160lb.[/QUOTE] The WBA have been having 3 champions per weight class for ages they have super, regular and interim champions. It's kind of ruining the sport , any random guy…
