Video: Gennady Golovkin Talks Canelo, Rolls Fight, New Trainer

Earlier this month, Gennadiy "GGG" Golovkin announced that he selected Johnathon Banks to be his new trainer.  Banks, who is no stranger to the pressure of working on boxing's biggest stages, has worked the corners of unified heavyweight world champion Wladimir Klitschko and undisputed welterweight champion Cecilia Braekhus, just to name a few. 

The announcement was made at a press conference at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.  Golovkin (38-1-1, 34 KOs), from Karaganda, Kazakhstan, will be bringing his Big Drama Show back to the "Mecca of Boxing" -- Madison Square Garden -- on Saturday, June 8. 

He will be taking on undefeated top-10 contender Steve Rolls (19-0, 10 KOs), of Toronto, in a 12-round rumble that will be contested at a maximum weight of 164 lbs. The fight will be streamed live on DAZN.  Golovkin vs. Rolls kicks off the exclusive six-fight, three-year global partnership between GGG Promotions and DAZN, the world's fastest-growing sports streaming platform.

I suppose Rolls can't be too bad a fighter, otherwise GBP would have matched him up with Lemieux to resurrect his career..... either that or they never heard of him either
