Gennady Golovkin and Kell Brook attended a final news conference on Thursday, ahead of their middleweight world title bout in London on Saturday 10th September.
Barring a draw, one unbeaten record will come to an end on Saturday after Gennady Golovkin takes on Kell Brook at the O2 Arena. Golovkin is the firm favourite to successfully defend his WBC, IBF and IBO middleweight world titles.
The 34-year-old comes into the fight with a record of 35 wins from as many bouts - 32 by knockout - and he has never been knocked down in 375 professional and amateur fights.
Brook stepped in to face Golovkin after Chris Eubank Jr. failed to agree a deal to fight the Kazakh. However, Brook has had to move up two weight classes, from welterweight to middleweight, to do so. Like Golovkin, Brook is unbeaten in his professional career, winning all 36 of his previous fights, with 25 of those victories coming by way of knockout. At Thursday’s news conference, Golovkin said he is ready for Brook, while the Briton insisted that he is “going to shock the world” on Saturday night.
