Gennady Golovkin vs David Lemieux - October 17 (Official Discussion)

Golovkin vs Lemieux
October 17, 2015
Madison Square Garden

New York, New York, USA

Main Card:
Gennady Golovkin (33-0)     vs.     (34-2) David Lemieux     
Main Event |  WBC - IBF - WBA Title Fight | Middleweight | 155 lbs (70 kg)
Roman Gonzalez (43-0)       vs.         (36-4) Brian Viloria     
Main Card  |  WBC Title Fight |Flyweight | 108 lbs (49 kg)

Main Card | Middleweight | 155 lbs (70 kg)


Montreal slugger David Lemieux, one of boxing's biggest hitters, will meet Golovkin to unify their 160-pound world titles Oct. 17 in an HBO PPV main event at Madison Square Garden in New York, K2 Promotions managing director Tom Loeffler, Golovkin's promoter, and Golden Boy's Oscar De La Hoya, who represents Lemieux, said Saturday.

It is a great unification fight between two champions and the two biggest punchers in the middleweight division. If Lemieux wins, he takes over the spot as the best middleweight in the world, and if Gennady wins, he stays the best middleweight in the world.

Golovkin (33-0, 30 KOs), 33-year-old, of Kazakhstan and living in Los Angeles, has knocked out 20 opponents in a row, including all 14 in his title defenses. The 26-year-old Lemieux (34-2, 31 KOs) is also a blistering puncher. But although he dropped Hassan N'Dam four times in their June 20 fight for a vacant world title in Montreal, Lemieux won a unanimous decision.

Shortly after Lemieux's title victory, which came just a month after Golovkin knocked out Willie Monroe in the sixth round of a one-sided title defense May 16, Loeffler and De La Hoya began talking about making the fight.

This fight is going to be a shootout while it lasts. I think Golovkin puts him away in 5.

You mean there's no need to negotiate back and forth for several years in order for high profile fights to happen?

I kind of want GGG to remain undefeated, but prefer Lemieux's style. Should be a great fight.

Awesome.

Should be a great fight.

I favor GGG but Lemieux is dangerous with his own power.

A great fight and the best to be made at middle weight; but also not a competitive match up.

GGG has no competition at this weight.

Hard to fault a guy for being too good for his competition and I am not intending to do so.

Lemieux always could land a lucky punch.

I'm in favor of the GGG train though, but he is going to have to move up for real competition. Bring on Andre Ward.

Golovkin is just a scary mix of skill, power, and chin. He badly outboxed Lemieux, beat him up, and took his best shots in the process. What a complete performance from GGG.
