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.
