Golovkin vs. Monroe Preview
- Updated: May 15, 2015
Ding Ding Ding!!!!!!!!!
Tomorrow its ‘Big Drama Show’ time as undefeated middleweight Gennady Golovkin makes his 2015 U.S. debut at the newly revamped Forum in Inglewood, California.
The HBO televised event will showcase the Kazakh native as he takes on New York’s Willie Monroe on Saturday.
The undercard is highlighted by hardcore boxing fan favorite Roman ‘Chocalitito’ Gonzalez in a fight card that boasts two of the sports’ most exciting fighters.
So let’s get to it! Its preview time, 3MR!!!!
HBO giving us back to back weekend action after that one fight a few weeks ago that 4 million people purchased!!!!!!!!
This category just screams GGG, as the title holder has nearly 20 consecutive knockout victories. The fight will mark Golovkin’s 14th world title defense and most lean towards yet another KO victory for the Southern California favorite.
The speed factor can be an area in which Monroe can shine. The New Yorker displayed wicked fast hands in his previous bout against Bryan Vera, consistently beating his opponent to the punch. GGG is a bit more methodical, although not stationary, in his fight approach and is more known for having knockdown power than being fleet of foot.
Monroe is best served to exploit this advantage to the fullest, darting in and out and avoiding the KO power of the Kazakh.
Golovkin won his first full-fledged 160 trinket in 2010 and hasn’t known anything other than a title bout since, all the while becoming more and more of an HBO attraction on his way to the grand stage of boxing.
Monroe simply does not bring in big stage or major title fight experience, and also has twelve last career fights than Golovkin. (20 to GGG’s 32).
There it is folks!
Be sure to tune in to watch GGG in his quest to continue his KO streak and hopes of a mega fight with, well, anyone who will stone up and give him a major fight, and also tune in to see ‘Chocolatito’ in what hopefully will start the return of headlining lighter weight fights on HBO.
If you happen to have tickets to the fight, which is said to be almost sold out, well….
