Boxing superstar, WBA, IBO and WBC "Interim" Middleweight Champion Gennady "GGG" Golovkin (33-0, 30 KOs) faces IBF Middleweight title holder, Montreal's David Lemieux (34-2, 31 KOs), in a World Middleweight Championship Title Unification bout on October 17 at the Mecca of Boxing, Madison Square Garden.

Sporting a record of 33-0 with 30 KOs, Golovkin's 91% knockout ratio is the highest in the middleweight division and has distinguished him as boxing's most exciting fighter. He has stopped his last 20 straight opponents inside the distance while defending his title fourteen times. In front of a huge crowd of over 12,000 Southern California fight fans on May 16, Golovkin continued his reign with a sixth round knockout over number two ranked contender Willie Monroe at the Forum in Los Angeles. The victory was Golovkin's second in his new home of Los Angeles, having stopped the WBC "Interim" Middleweight Champion Marco Antonio Rubio on October 18, 2014.

Currently ranked in the top 10 middleweight fighters by the IBF, WBO, and WBA and the reigning IBF World Middleweight Champion, David Lemieux is coming off of his 9th consecutive win over Hassan N'Dam and 7th consecutive knockout against Gabriel "King" Rosado last December. The hard-hitting Lemieux is now a serious threat who will attempt to sweep and conquer the division with a win over Golovkin. Lemieux is poised to become the next king of the middleweight division and will look to give Golovkin the first loss of his professional career on Oct. 17.
