Photos: Gennady Golovkin Getting in Work in Monte Carlo

Monte Carlo - Boxing's fastest rising superstar, Gennady "GGG" Golovkin is finalizing preparations for his tenth world title defense this Saturday, FEBRUARY 1 against world ranked challenger Osumanu Adama in Monte Carlo.


 
Golovkin, 28-0-0 (25KO"s), will defend his WBA/IBO world titles in the main event of Monte Carlo Boxing Bonanza for his return to Monaco at the Salles des Etoiles.


 
On March 30, 2013, Golovkin knocked out former world champion Nobuhiro Ishida in the third round in Monaco, a devastating stoppage that earned accolades for "Knockout of the Year" from Yahoo Sports. His outstanding performances in 2013 (four knockout victories) also earned him "Fighter of the Year" honors from USA Today.


 
Golovkin has stopped 15 opponents in a row and holds the highest KO percentage among all active world champions in boxing in addition to the highest in middleweight division history.


 
Adama, 22-3-0 (16KO's), has previously challenged then IBF Middleweight Titlist Daniel Geale in March 2012, losing a close decision in Australia.


 
Monte Carlo Boxing Bonanza is presented by Golden Gloves of South Africa, K2 Promotions, GGG Promotions and SBM Monte Carlo.
