Exclusive SaddoBoxing Interview With Gennady “GGG” Golovkin

By Jose Espinoza January 24th, 2015 All Boxing Interviews

On February 21, middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin will face Martin Murray in Monte Carlo, Monaco in what promises to be a critical year for the man they call "GGG."

The plan for Golovkin is to fight four times in 2015 and yet for the moment, he is unable to lure any major names into the ring for a pay-per-view level fight.

How can it be possible that the fastest rising-star in the sport of boxing is unable to secure a pay-per-view level fight?

Lets take a closer look at the man who many consider to be the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world.

Golovkin, like a great many fighters, came from humble beginnings. His father was from Russia and worked as a coal miner while his mother was Korean and worked as an assistant in a chemical laboratory. He grew up as one of four brothers in Karaganda, Kazakhstan, and then migrated with his family to Germany.

At the age of 10, Golovkin started going to a local boxing gym and training with his brothers. When asked by SaddoBoxing about what lessons boxing taught him at a young age? The 32 year-old fighter responded firmly: "Boxing has taught me discipline, this have been very important for me in my everyday life."

His amateur career was unparalleled with success and also quite extensive. His amateur career spanned many years and his record at the end of it was an outstanding 345 victories and only 5 losses.

Finally in 2006, Gennady moved up the ranks and became a professional fighter. "It was the right thing for me to do, I fought in the Olympics and won a silver medal. I don't have any regrets [speaking about his long amateur career], I feel good right now about where my career is," said the fighter born in Kazakhstan.

In the last few years, Golovkin has developed a reputation similar to that of Mike Tyson in his glory years. He is considered the scariest fighter to face in the middleweight division and not because of his character, as Golovkin is quite a gentleman, but instead because he has the best knockout percentage of any middleweight contender in history at 90.32%.

By Boxing Press January 23rd, 2015 All Press Releases

“Big Daddy” Browne Calls Out Chagaev, Wilder

By Hatton Promotions January 23rd, 2015 All Boxing News

Lucas Browne has placed Deontay Wilder on his hit list, but first he's keen to square off with WBA champion Ruslan Chagaev.

The hard-hitting Aussie is rated at number seven in the world by the WBC and is a legitimate contender for the title Wilder won by outpointing Bermane Stiverne in Las Vegas at the weekend.

However, he is currently the highest available challenger with the WBA and feels a shot could be just around the corner as Chageav needs to make a defence quickly due to him already surpassing the organisation's rules. More...

Wilder Topples Stiverne To Capture WBC Heavyweight Crown

By Gonzo Glenn Gasket January 19th, 2015 All Boxing Results

Bermane Stiverne's brief heavyweight title reign came to an end last night at MGM Grand in Las Vegas as challenger Deontay Wilder walked out of the arena with an intact undefeated record but more importantly, with new found respect in the Boxing community.

Gone is Wilder's KO streak but the towering Alabama native is likely glad to have traded that in for proof that he can go 12 rounds after having 32 professional contests all end in four rounds or less.

Stiverne simply never got his offense in gear as Wilder prevented such an occurrence by employing his considerable advantages in height, reach and punching power.

After a cautious first round, Wilder nailed Stiverne with a hard right in the closing moments of the second, then proceeded to batter the shaken champion, who only avoided getting accessed a knockdown by literally tackling Wilder to the canvas.

From that point on, Stiverne was clearly aware of the challenger's concussive power and was never too keen on cutting off the ring and engaging Wilder, who maintained distance by circling away from Stiverne for the entire contest.

Stiverne was able to land a few whipping left hooks, particularly in the sixth when Wilder was definitely shaken up, but he could never build upon that due to Wilder's persistent jab, which was landing on Stiverne every round.

Both men were tired in the later rounds and by that time, all the ambition had been punched out of Stiverne as Wilder simply walked around the ring, jabbing occasionally while waiting for time to run out. More...
