NEW YORK CITY - WBA and IBO Middleweight World Champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin headed straight to Times Square upon arriving in New York City ahead of his showdown on Saturday night against top rated challenger Curtis Stevens at Madison Square Garden, "The Mecca of Boxing” and LIVE on HBO® (10:00 p.m. ET/PT.)

Golovkin was swarmed by fans and media as he posed for pictures in front of the massive HBO billboard at 42nd Street and 7th Avenue  promoting the fight.

With the highest knockout percentage (89%) in the history of the middleweight division, Golovkin will be looking to extend his 14-bout knockout streak when he makes the 9th-defense of his world titles.

This past January 19, in front of a full house of New York City fight fans, Golovkin dominated top rated challenger Gabriel Rosado, stopping him in the seventh round at Madison Square Garden.

[QUOTE=Jloro;13886532]What if Stevens manages to Catch GG and wins? What would happen after that lol[/QUOTE] ... If Stevens catches him, everybody would say GGG was a hype job. But if GGG wins they would say Golovkin fought a "nobody"...
