RETURN OF THE GOLOVKIN: Triple G in MSG BIG ROOM Oct. 17

UPDATE: Gennady Golovkin verified our info, that he will glove up again, in NYC, and will take on a power-punching Canadian in the MSG big room. Here was the Tweet GGG sent out to tell the world, on Saturday afternoon: 6h6 hours agoI will fight @lemieuxboxing in a Middleweight Title Unification on #October17 @TheGarden & @HBO PPV! #

——————————————————————————————————————————–

He’s a draw on both coasts, and internationally. No wonder, being that he has an angel face and devil fists, and looks to remove his foes’ head from shoulders from second one in all of his fights.

Gennady Golovkin will look to do that again, on October 17, at Madison Square Garden, the big room, a source tells me.

The fighting pride of Kazahkstan, Triple G, will likely face off against another battering ram of a human being, model-faced smasher David Lemiuex, a Canadian with a similar mindset bent on destruction. He owns power in both hands and a driven desire to put opponents to sleep.

Fireworks are virtually guaranteed here; the possible scrap would be offered on pay-per-view, from the HBO team.

K2 and Golden Boy and Lemieux’ people, Eye of the Tiger, would help put it all together.

I put calls in to verify to reps for K2, Golden Boy and EOTT and will insert comment if and when I hear back.

GBP is at the front of the best fights so far this year. They gave us The Machine vs Siberian Rocky so far, add in Kirkland v Canelo, and hopefully Canelo v Cotto and Lemeuix vs GGG and its a wrap.


-Carmine Cas :

That's a great fight! I hope everyone has a safe, injury free training camp.


-Domenic :

Major kudos and credit to David Lemieux for taking the fight. You can count on one hand the number of people willing to glove up with Golovkin, so this deserves a serious round of applause. When Cotto was asked about Golovkin, he nearly soiled himself. Lemieux, thank you. This is great news. Hell, Golovkin has so many people running scared and reaching for toilet paper at the mere mention of his name that it's as if he has full blown contagious AIDS or SARS or bird flu in there.

Great news, Woodsy. Please keep us posted, and let us know when tickets are going on sale.

Yep. I'm trying to think of any PBC match ups that compare with those. Quality, not quantity, and substance over hype. That's what will grow the sport.


-deepwater2 :

I will def try and go to GGG vs Lemiuex. Look what we have to look forward to: 9/19- Lee vs Saunders(a traveling fight for the championship,in a travelers town-Limerick.wow) 10/3 -The Machine vs Postol (Postol is no joke.Garcia fled him at every chance) 10/17 Lemiuex vs GGG (Can't ask for much more than this unification.Congrats to all involved for making it happen) 10/24- Fury vs Klit (Biggest heavyweight fight in years) 11/? - Cotto vs Canelo @Mandalay bay? (Superfight) As a boxing fan I am so happy for this fall. PBC doesn't have many competitive cards except the Mares v LSC. Come on PBC,step up,make some tough matches within the stable. At least Quillin vs Jacobs or Boner vs Garcia or Wilder vs Briggs


-Domenic :

David Lemieux goes up so many notches in my book for taking this assignment. Golovkin was at the point of having to do a Foreman versus 5 guys in Toronto, or move to 175 for anything worthwhile. Lemieux stepped up, as a man, to challenge the middleweight cream of the crop. Credit to David Lemieux for being willing to test his athletic skills against GGG. Boxing needs more of this.

Absolutely, and for a guy for years to finally get a title and his first defense is against a killing machine...He could have taken at two easy defenses and I would not have blamed him, been bitter but could understand why. But nope, he jumps right in the GGG... If DL gets knocked out in 29 seconds he will still have my respect and support...


-brownsugar :

For the record Kirkland vs Canelo a hopeless mismatch, the tragic Texan hasn't been himself since he beat Tapia. But this is an attractive fight. And secondly since I'm neither a democrat, republican or independent, I care nothing about the politics of boxing. I did find the rise and fall of Richard Schaefer to be fascinating subject of boxing history. But I don't buy tickets to choose sides against promoters and watch them bicker and squabble... I do sometime wonder why there seems to be a virtual mass exodus to the Al Haymon camp? What's going on over there? Does he have a magic mirror in his office ? Does Haymon stand before it and chant: Mirror mirror on the wall, whose the most powerful advisor of them all?? However I am prepared to live with these mysteries as they are not my primary concern while I prepare to watch the first worthy sacrifice offered to GGG since Martin Murray. The kid has improved dramatically and deserves the fight he's getting but I hope the Canadian fans don't go crazy betting on Lemieux. He has zero chance. Redemption is part of what boxing is all about and I hope Lemieux puts up a worthy fight, but he's only going to bring out the best in Golovkin. Golovkin won't have to hire a super slueth like Sherlock Holmes to find out where in the ring Lemieux is hiding, neither will Golovkin have to dumb down his offence to lure Lemieux into exchanging with him. I will be amazed if Lemieux lasts as long as Curtis Stevens, but it should be an entertaining show. And Lemieux has my full respect as a spectator for giving it a go. Thank you Oscar!

I agree wholeheartedly with David Lemieux being man's man and doing what no other middleweight dared to do: Saying yes to a fight against GGG. I just hope, for as long as the fight lasts (it cannot possibly go the distance, can it???), that fans give both fighters credit, both the winner and loser. If GGG wins, whether easily or in the "Fight of the Year," I hope fans will not say, "When is he going to fight someone?" Should Lemieux pull of what will have to be the "Upset of the Year," I hope we won't hear GGG's detractors say, "Nice win, but GGG was highly overrated. GGG v Lemieux is truly a fight fan's fight. I am already having visions of another short, brutal, terrific, thrill-a-second middleweight match from 30 years earlier--Marvelous Marvin Hagler v Thomas Hearns. October 17 cannot get here fast enough! -Randy G.

If it's thrilling, and Golovkin is rarely/never boring, boxing wins. This will be a high intensity scrap, I think. Good call, as always Randy. As an aside, always nice to read the comments of a man that resides in the index and is quoted directly in 'Undisputed Truth,' Tyson's definitive deal.
