Japanese contender Nobuhiro Ishida (L) and International Boxing Organization/World Boxing Association middleweight world title holder Gennady Golovkin (R) of Kazakhtan shake hands before a press conference at the Casino of Monte-Carlo in the principality of Monaco. Ishida is scheduled to challenge Golovkin for his titles on Saturday night.

The event, promoted in association with Monte Carlo SBM Hotel and Casino, is headlined by red-hot WBA middleweight champion Gennady "GGG" Golovkin (25-0, 22KO's) defending his title against former world champion Nobuhiro Ishida (24-8-2, 9KO's).  The opening round of the Super 4 tournament matches Edwin Rodriguez (22-0, 15KO's) against Argentinean Olympian Ezequiel Osvaldo Maderna (19-0, 13KO's) and former two-division world champion Zsolt Erdei (33-0, 18KO's) squaring off against Denis Grachev (12-1-1, 8KO's).  The card will be distributed in the United States and Canada on PPV by Integrated Sports Media for live viewing at 3:00 p.m. ET/12:00 p.m. PT on both cable and satellite Pay-Per-View.

Berman, the premiere promoter in South Africa, kicked off the presser thanking everyone for coming out, and for everyone who was involved in putting this historic event together.

"A lot of people have put a lot of hard work into this," said Berman.  "This is going to be a fantastic event on Saturday night, with a card that features an array of talent and fantastic fighters from the top to bottom.  There has been a huge worldwide response for this tournament which features "GGG" (Gennady Golovkin).  We are just really excited to finally get things underway on Saturday night."

The middleweight champion Golovkin took to the podium first:

"I am very happy to be here in this beautiful country and a in such great city and I want to thank everyone involved in this event. This is great for the fans and for the sport of boxing.  I know Ishida well and I know this is going to be a difficult fight. I am ready to put on a great performance for everyone on Saturday night.

"I want to thank the champion for giving us the opportunity for this fight," said the challenger, and former champion Ishida.  "We know that he (Golovkin) is a great and powerful champion.  He is very strong and one of the best fighters pound-for-pound in boxing, but we are here for the upset.  We are prepared to do whatever we have to do to take this championship home with us."

The first fighter of the Super 4 tournament to the podium was undefeated super middleweight contender Edwin Rodriguez (22-0, 15KO's).  The defending USBA champion, and IBF #3, WBC #3, WBA #5, WBO #12 rated super middleweight Rodriguez first thanked his promoter Lou DiBella and manager Larry Army, as well as the organizers of the event, including a special thanks to Rodney Berman, before giving his take on the tournament.

The "Monte-Carlo Million Dollar Super 4" and Golovkin's middleweight title defense will be distributed in the United States and Canada by Integrated Sports Media for live viewing at 3:00 p.m. ET/12:00 p.m. PT on both cable and satellite Pay-Per-View via iN Demand, DIRECTV, DISH and Avail-TVN in the United States and in Canada via Bell TV, for a suggested retail price of only $24.95.  In addition, the event will be available via online Pay-Per-View at:

Fight probably won't make it to the 3rd rd. Golovkin will end it early.
