By Jake Donovan

Gennady Golovkin and Daniel Geale are set for their anticipated middleweight clash Saturday evening at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The bout airs live on HBO.

Golovkin (29-0, 26KOs) came in at 159.8 lb. for the 11th defense of his middeweight title. Geale (30-2, 16KOs), a former middleweight titlist, was slightly lighter at 159.2 lb. 

In the televised co-feature, unbeaten heavyweights Bryant Jennings and Mike Perez collide in a bout to determine who will go on to face the winner of the forthcoming heavyweight title fight between tilist Bermane Stiverne and undefeated mandatory challenger Deontay Wilder.

Perez (20-0-1, 12KOs) weighed 242.2 lb., his heaviest weight in nearly three years. Jennings (18-0, 10KOs) came in at a chiseled 222.6 lb., his lightest weight since weighing 219.5 lb. for a 9th round stoppage of former heavyweight champ Siarhei Liakhovich more than two years ago.

The bout marks Jennings' second straight HBO appearance against an unbeaten heavyweight. Perez will fight on HBO for the third consecutive time. 

Gennady Golovkin, 159.8 lb. vs. Daniel Geale, 159.2 lb. - 12 rounds, middleweight
