Kazakh demolition specialist Gennady “GGG” Golovkin will face undefeated challenger Dominic Wade on April 23 in Los Angeles.
Coming off yet another destructive win over Canada’s David Lemieux, Golovkin will put both his WBA and IBF titles on the line. Wade who is 18-0 with 12 knock outs will be facing by far his toughest test of his career to date.
Golovkin hammers Lemieux. In a unification fight, many expected to be competitive, Golovkin dismantled the heavy hitting Canadian with frightening ease.
Although talented, Wade is not expected to cause an upset and realistically this will be viewed as nothing more than a warm up contest for the potential middleweight super fight between GGG and Saul “Canelo” Alvarez later in the year.
Alvarez has the Amir Khan shaped obstacle obstructing this first and in the unlikely event the Briton is victorious it seems he will not lock horns with the heavy hitting Golovkin. When asked about the prospect Khan recently replied, “i dont know. I mean that could be something tough.”
If Khan achieves the unthinkable against Canelo and claims the WBC crown then expect to see the fastest vacation of a title ever witnessed in the sport. And with the hurtful ways Golovkin stalks his opponents down, who could really blame him?
