Golovkin Takes the Mound
Undefeated WBC/WBA/IBF/IBO middleweight world champion, Gennady "GGG" Golovkin, kicked off Fight Week as he took the mound Sunday at Dodger Stadium. Golovkin threw the ceremonial first pitch before the Dodgers vs. Rockies game Sunday afternoon.
Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs) who has been middleweight champion since 2010, is in deep training for his 19th consecutive title defense - one short of the all-time record - against lineal and Ring Magazine Middleweight World Champion and Mexican icon Canelo Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs). Canelo vs. Golovkin is the long-awaited showdown.
