Gennady Golovkin has knocked out his last 22 opponents in a row, and he feels upcoming opponent Kell Brook will become another victim in that steak.

Brook (36-0, 25KOs), who holds the IBF welterweight title, is moving up by thirteen pounds to challenge Golovkin (35-0, 32KOs) for the IBO, WBA 'Super', IBF and WBC middleweight championships on September 10th at The O2, live on Sky Sports Box Office. HBO will televised in the United States.

Golovkin was in action back in April, when he knocked out Dominic Wade in two rounds to satisfy his mandatory obligation to the IBF. The fight against Brook was approved as a voluntary defense by the sanctioning bodies.

According to Golovkin, if Brook elects to brawl then the fight will be over rather quickly - but it may take him longer to secure the knockout if Brook stays on the move by using his legs.

"I know that Kell is a good fighter, but I know my style and I am ready," Golovkin told Sky Sports News HQ. "I am very interested in what Kell will do. He will not fight like a street fighter because that would be a very short fight. If he is moving and dancing, maybe longer because I know I need time."

Abel Sanchez, who trains Golovkin, says his boxer batters heavyweights during sparring. He is predicting a knockout victory "in five rounds."

"I have worked with a lot of heavyweights who were big, big punchers, but with Gennady, it hurts when he hits you," Sanchez said. "God gave him heavy hands, I guess the parents had something to do with that. But I think at this stage you can improve it and, if you saw him sometimes, he would stop and feel where his balance was. I think technique, timing and speed has a lot to do with it."
