Video: Golovkin-Wade Full Los Angeles Press Conference

Los Angeles, CA - Boxing Superstar and Unified Middleweight World Champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin will make his highly anticipated return to the Fabulous Forum on Saturday, April 23 to defend his world titles against undefeated, mandatory challenger Dominic “Lights Out” Wade. The event will be televised Live on HBO World Championship Boxing® beginning at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.

Presented by K2 Promotions and GGG Promotions in association with TGB Promotions, advance tickets for “UNDEFEATED”, priced at $400, $300, $200, $100, $60 and $30, will go on-sale Tuesday, February 16 at 12:00 p.m. PT through Ticketmaster (Ticketmaster.com, 1-800-745-3000) and the Forum Box Office. A world class undercard will be announced shortly.

Following a memorable year which saw three outstanding knockout performances, Golovkin, (34-0, 31KOs) was lauded by numerous media platforms worldwide as the 2015 Fighter of the Year.

Commencing the year with a dominant performance on February 23, 2015 against #1 ranked contender, Martin Murray, Golovkin made his third appearance in Monaco where he has also become a fan favorite. Displaying his full arsenal of weaponry and with two earlier knockdowns of Murray, Golovkin earned the stoppage in the 11th round against the valiant native of the United Kingdom who had never been knocked down or stopped previously.

Three months later on May 16, Golovkin made his triumphant return to Los Angeles with a sixth round knockout of Willie Monroe at the Forum in front of a huge crowd of 12,732.

On October 17, before a sold-out crowd of 20,548 at Madison Square Garden, Golovkin dismantled IBF Middleweight Champion David Lemieux with an exhilarating eighth round stoppage in his fourth appearance at the ‘Mecca of Boxing.’” After winning the title, the IBF ordered Golovkin to make his mandatory world title defense against the leading contender, Dominic Wade.

 The victory over Lemieux unified the middleweight world titles as Golovkin added the IBF belt to his collection of the previously won WBA, IBO and WBC “Interim” straps. It was also his 15th world title defense and 21st knockout in a row, extending his knockout ratio to 91.2% and one step closer to breaking Bernard Hopkins’ record of 20 consecutive middleweight world title defenses.

The 25-year-old Dominic Wade, (18-0, 12KO’s), was an outstanding amateur as a four-time Junior Olympic Champion and a participant in the 2007 Olympic Boxing Trials.

In 2014, Wade was very active scoring four victories in dominant fashion. The Largo, Maryland native is coming off an impressive victory over former world champion Sam Soliman on June 26, 2015.
