Video: Gennady Golovkin, Brian Viloria Putting in Work

Radio Rahim catches up with WBA/IBO champion Gennady 'GGG' Golovkin to discuss the upcoming unification clash with IBF middleweight champion David Lemieux.

Los Angeles - Boxing superstar, WBA, IBO and WBC “Interim” Middleweight Champion GENNADY “GGG” GOLOVKIN (33-0, 30 KOs) will face IBF Middleweight title holder, Montreal power-puncher DAVID LEMIEUX (34-2, 31 KOs), in a World Middleweight Championship Title Unification bout on Saturday, October 17 at the Mecca of Boxing, Madison Square Garden. The championship event will be produced and distributed live by HBO Pay-Per-View beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT.

Golovkin vs. Lemieux is the fight fans have been waiting for, promising all-out action from the moment the first bell rings, and is presented by K2 Promotions and Golden Boy Promotions in association with GGG Promotions and Eye of the Tiger Management.

Golovkin's willingness to fight at destinations in both the U.S. and Europe has enabled him to emerge as one of the most marketable television attractions worldwide, setting venue attendance records and delivering tremendous TV ratings. He is currently ranked number three by ESPN.com on their Pound For Pound list with Ring Magazine also placing him at number 4.

Sporting a record of 33-0 with 30 knockouts, Golovkin’s 91 percent knockout ratio is the highest in the middleweight division and has distinguished him as boxing’s most exciting fighter. He has stopped his last 20 straight opponents inside the distance while defending his title fourteen times. In front of a huge crowd of over 12,000 Southern California fight fans on May 16, Golovkin continued his reign with a sixth round knockout over number two ranked contender Willie Monroe at the Forum in Los Angeles. The victory was Golovkin’s second in his new home of Los Angeles, having stopped the WBC “Interim” Middleweight Champion Marco Antonio Rubio on October 18, 2014 in front of a venue record 9,323 fans at the StubHub Center.

Currently ranked in the top 10 middleweight fighters by the IBF, WBO, and WBA and the reigning IBF World Middleweight Champion, David Lemieux (34-2, 31 KOs), is coming off of his ninth consecutive win over Hassan N’Dam and seventh consecutive knockout against Gabriel "King" Rosado last December. The 26-year-old Lemieux was victorious in dominant fashion capturing the vacant IBF Middleweight Title against Hassan N’Dam on June 20 in his hometown of Montreal, Canada. Dropping N’Dam four times, the hard-hitting Canadian won a wide, 12-round unanimous decision. Lemieux made his HBO and United States debut in headline fashion with a fantastic performance stopping top contender Gabriel Rosado in the tenth round on December 6 in Brooklyn, New York. The hard-hitting Lemieux is now a serious threat who will attempt to sweep and conquer the division with a win over Golovkin. Lemieux is poised to become the next king of the middleweight division and will look to give Golovkin the first loss of his professional career on Oct. 17.

He is a aggressive fighter who can take your power away. He can throw multiple power shots without losing balance at all, not for a split second. Many fighters are off balance throwing hard, but GGG often switches stance in…
