The 37-year-old will take on Sergiy Derevyanchenko (13-1, 10 KOs) for the vacant IBF world middleweight title at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Where: Madison Square Garden in New York City
Odds: Golovkin -480 (bet $480 to win $100), Derevyanchenko +380 (bet $100 to win $380)
Sound, fundamental boxing might work for a few rounds, but Golovkin is capable of switching into Terminator-mode and walking through punches on his way to launching the kind of debilitating shots that have made him famous.
While he didn't look like a world-beater in his most recent fight, a unanimous-decision win against Jack Culcay, Derevyanchenko's trainer, Andre Rozier, believes his man is in top form heading into the biggest bout of his career.
