Kirkland-Jonak To Land on Golovkin Card, April 26?

By Luke Furman

According to sources in Poland, there are negotiations taking place to match James Kirkland (32-1, 28KOs) against Polish junior middleweight contender Damian Jonak (37-0-1, 21KOs).

[QUOTE=bojangles1987;14196180]James Kirkland would not make it out of the first round against Golovkin unless he ran. Kirkland has a crap chin and no defense. His style works against a certain type of fighter, and Golovkin sure isn't that type of…
