Golovkin vs Macklin: Training camp notes
Next Saturday defending WBA/IBO champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (26-0, 23KO’s) meets Ireland’s top-rated former world title challenger Matthew “Mack The Knife” Macklin (29-4, 20KO’s) in their much-anticipated middleweight championship showdown at the MGM Grand Theaterat Foxwoods ® Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut. The championship matchup will be the main event on the HBO Boxing After Dark triple-header, which will be televised live on HBO® beginning at 9:45 p.m. ET/PT.
In the HBO televised co-feature bout, red-hot super middleweight contender and IBO Champion Thomas “Tommy Gun” Oosthuizen (21-0-1, 13KO’s) puts his undefeated record on the line against fellow undefeated contender Brandon “Flawless” Gonzales (17-0, 10KO’s) while top-rated junior middleweight NABF champion Willie “The Great” Nelson (20-1-1, 12KO’s) squares off against Luciano Cuello (32-2, 16KO’s) in the televised opener. Both bouts are scheduled for 10 rounds.
With just over a little more than a week to go before the monster middleweight showdown, both champion and challenger are eagerly counting down the minutes to what is one of the most anticipated championship match-ups thus far in 2013.
Gennady “GGG” Golovkin
“This has been a terrific camp, the weather in Big Bear has been very good throughout. Training has been great and I’ve had some very good sparring.”
“My only focus is on Matthew Macklin on Saturday, June 29, nothing else.”
“It’s always exciting to fight. I’m thankful to all my fans for their support.
I’m looking forward to putting on another good show.”
“I know that Chavez Jr., Geale and Sturm have fights coming up. I will fight any of them. I want to fight the best and challenge myself always.”
Abel Sanchez, Trainer of Gennady “GGG” Golovkin
“Gennady showed up for camp at 167 at the end of May. He’s at 163 today, his weight is never a problem and he’s in outstanding shape.”
Tom Loeffler, Managing Director of K2 Promotions
“Seeing how hard Gennady trains explains why he has been so dominant. Fans at Foxwoods on June 29 and those watching around the world will see a terrific performance from him.”
“One fight at a time, but our goal is to unify the titles at 160. And for the right opportunity Gennady is fully prepared to also fight anyone at 154 or 168.”
“Along with HBO in the US and Sky Sports in the UK, this fight will also be broadcast LIVE on DMAX in Germany where Gennady lives.”
