Golovkin: Mayweather's Style is Like a Computer Game

LONDON - Pound-for-pound ace Gennady Golovkin believes his unification world title clash with fellow hard-hitter David Lemieux will rank alongside some of the middleweight divisions best ever.

The Kazakh assassin will put his WBA and IBO world titles on the line in a 160-pound meeting with Canada’s IBF champion Lemieux this Saturday night at the iconic Madison Square Garden, live and exclusive on BoxNation.

The showdown pits together two of the world’s biggest punchers, who average a near 90% knockout ratio between them, with the electrifying Golovkin saying that the clash will be an all-action affair to follow the great battles of the past.

“This is a true fight, an original fight. It’s going to be a present for people. Boxing isn’t a game; it’s very important who the true number one is. This is my big test and my first step to history and to a new story,” said Golovkin.

“This is my first unification fight and my first pay-per-view fight. It’s about being a true warrior and not just a business man. I love to fight, it’s that simple. I’m looking to knock him out.

“I’m more motivated than ever because it’s a unification fight and a pay-per-view. I keep saying it’s an ‘old school’ fight because this will be a classic fight.

“It’s like a long time ago when Marvin Hagler, Tommy Hearns and Sugar Ray Leonard all fought; it will be in this same style,” he said.

The 33-year-old has waited a while for his big break and now in front of a sold out 15,000 arena at New York’s legendary Madison Square Garden he is ready to grab his chance to prove himself against a formidable champion in Lemieux.

Golovkin wants to bring the fans back to the sport of boxing by continuing his knockout performances.

"This is a new story for boxing, very good for boxing," Golovkin said. "I remember a long time ago when boxing was very famous. Now there's not as much interest, but there could be."

"It's about style. Everybody understands Mayweather's style, he's like a computer game. My style is more like a street fight, more of a real fight. It's like Mike Tyson's style."

[QUOTE=-Kev-;16141734]I'd like to see if Golovkin would keep his "Mexican" style at Cruiserweight, which would be the equivalent of Floyd fighting at 147/154. I want to see him be almighty and powerful when he is fighting guys who are 10-15lbs…
