Gennady "GGG" Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs) will take on Vanes Martirosyan (36-3-1, 21KOs) in what is expected to be an exhilarating 12-round middleweight match at the StubHub Center in Carson, California on Saturday, May 5, 2018.

Golovkin was a dominant amateur standout and Olympic Silver Medalist before he turned professional in 2006. A native of Karaganda, Kazakhstan, this 35-year old force has been on a historic trajectory scoring knockout after knockout to unify the WBC, WBA, IBF and IBO World Middleweight Titles. He now hopes to continue to his streak by taking out Martirosyan.

Martirosyan is a native of Abovyan, Armenia, who has lost three of his last six fights. His last fight was in May of 2016 where he lost to Erislandy Lara for the WBA/IBO super welterweight crown. This was a devastating defeat and Martirosyan has not fought since but is ready to get back in the game.

"Vanes Matirosyan is now the most important fight in my career," said Golovkin. "He has my respect and I am training hard to defend my titles against him. I am happy to be back on HBO and fighting at StubHub Center because they have great boxing fans. I will give my fans another big show.?

"I was on the bench because of boxing politics, but was in the gym waiting and praying for this and God gave me the opportunity," said Martirosyan. "I'm going to take full advantage of this fight. It's not about money. It's about my boxing story and what type of fighter I am."
