Gennady Golovkin and Osumana Adama made weight for Saturday's middleweight title fight, which headlines at Salle des etoiles in Monte Carlo, Monaco. 

Both fighters weighed in at 159.2, comfortably within the 160 lb. divisional limit.

Golovkin (28-0, 25KO) attempts the 10th defense of the alphabet title he acquired more than three years ago. The Kazakhstan-born puncher has scored 15 straight knockouts, including four impressive stoppage wins in a 2013 campaign that saw his name land high on Fighter of the Year lists. 

Adama (22-3, 16KO) aims for a major title in his second try. His first attempt resulted in a points loss to Daniel Geale in their March '12 middleweight title fight. The transplanted Ghanaian, now based outside of Chicago, has won two straight. 

The show serves as Golovkin's second trip to Monte Carlo. His first appearance resulted in one of the best knockouts of 2013, drilling normally durable Nobuhiro Ishida in three rounds. 

Also appearing on the card: Max Bursak and Jarrod Fletcher meet in a middleweight clash with future title implications; former strawweight king Nkosinathi Joyi faces Rey Loreto in a junior flyweight bout; unbeaten welterweight Roman Beleav faces England's Dean Byrne in a scheduled 12-round regional title fight; and raw knockout artists Ilunga 'Junior' Makabu  and Ruben Angel Mino meet in a cruiserweight action that figures to be fun for however long it lasts. 


Gennady Golovkin, 159.2 vs. Osumanu Adama, 159.2 - 12 rounds, middleweights

Ilunga "Junior" Makabu, 193.5 vs. Ruben Angel Mino, 199.3 - 10 rounds, cruiserweights

Max Bursak, 159.72 vs. Jarrod Fletcher, 159 - 12 rounds, middleweights

Nkonsinathi Joyi, 106.9 vs, Rey Loreto, 107.6 - 12 rounds, junior flyweights

Roman Belaev, 146.2 vs. Dean Byrne, 146 - 12 rounds, welterweights

[QUOTE=Realizniguhnit]HBO is a joke for not showing this fight..[/QUOTE] It will be 10x worse if they try to push the Kirkland fight after this. It's the Stevens fight 2.0 against a worse version catering to the casual fans while sacrificing quality. They need to try getting Geale who said he ...

[QUOTE=hougigo]I'm more curious who Golovki is[/QUOTE] If he is half as good as Golovkin then Adama still gets KTFO.
