hbo-boxingVENICE, CA (July 17, 2013) Boxing’s fastest rising star, middleweight world champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin continues to impress in-and -outof the ring with record numbers for his television ratings.

This week HBO announced that it’s “2Days: Gennady Golovkin” documentary feature surrounding Golovkin’s knockout victory of Gabriel Rosado on JANUARY 19 was the highest rated ever of it’s acclaimed series with over three million total viewers.

Additionally, record numbers of viewers watched across Europe and Asia as Golovkin dismantled top rated middleweight contender Matthew Macklin on JUNE 29 in a bout, which also drew over 1.1 million viewers on HBO.

“We’re very excited that boxing fans in the US and across the globe are tuning in to Gennady’s fights and his 2Days documentary in record numbers. HBO did a terrific job capturing the unique elements which took place leading up to the Rosado fight which made for a compelling feature,” said Tom Loeffler, Managing Director of K2 Promotions.

“Gennady just returned home to Germany from a fantastic week as the guest of honor in Monte Carlo for the finals of the Million Dollar Super 4 Tournament where he was hosted by Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene of Monaco.”

Golokvin’s knockout of Macklin was his third title fight of the year and raised his record to 27-0-0 with 24 knockouts as he defended both his WBA and IBO Middleweight Titles. It also raised his knockout ratio to 88.89%, highest among all active titleholders in the sport.

“We’ve said from the beginning of the year that Gennady would fight five times this year and we’re planning his next two bouts,” said Loeffler. “He is anxious to return the ring and to continue providing fans with the spectacular performances they’ve grown accustomed to seeing from him.”

This may sound like blasphemy but Wards' best chance to survive GGG is to grow out of the super middleweight division......but then there's Kovalov waiting at 175....a rock and a hard place. Like Donaire.... unless he's carefully managed... Ward will learn that sometimes these Pound for Pound titles are bestowed without consideration of the big picture.. GGG is destined to take over.
But maybe I'm getting too far ahead of myself. There's still that pesky job of cleaning out the rest of the middle weights first... in Hagler-like fashion.

Looks like he's going to be hard to avoid for the other fighters

Radam G says:

WOW! Nuff said! Holla!

Qullin is still underneath his bed hiding from ggg

Fantastic! Hopefully his rising popularity will force fighters to fight him and networks to televise... This should be fun
