Gennady Golovkin will be taking on David Lemieux on the HBO ppv event to take place at Madison Square Garden on 17th October 2015. David Lemieux is the IBF World middleweight title holder and he recently defeated Hassan N’Dam N’Jikam and currently on a 9 fight winning streak but that is more than likely to come to an end as he prepare to take on one of the worlds most feared boxers in Gennady Golovkin who made headlines in the USA defeating Willie Manroe Jr in May 2015.

Looking at the record of both fighters Golovkin will be heavy favorite for this fight but Lemieux wont be push over as he is in a resurgent form after his back to back losses against Marco Antonio Rubio and to Joachim Alcine back in 2011. He has won 9 straight fights and recently won IBF middleweight championship title defeated Hassan N’Dam N’Jikam of cameroon.
Here are some of the greatest hits from David Lemieux career so far.
Golovkin on the other hand is undefeated with 33-0 30 knockouts and has never let the fight go the distance since 2008. His most recent fight which brought him into the limlight to US viewers was early this year when he defeated Willie Monroe Jr with a 6th round knockout. This fight is surely not a big PPV match-up but since HBO and Golden Boy promotions are hoping that Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin can dominate the boxing scene in the next few years its a good start.
