Rolls ready for the fight of his life

Rolls ready for the fight of his life

Battling it out at the Madison Square Garden in New York City the star from Kazakhstan faced Canadian Steve Rolls.

Golovkin, though, is taking Rolls' challenge seriously.

The former world champion under versions WBC, WBA, IBF and IBO Middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin triumphantly returned to the ring after a first career defeat in September past year, the decision from the Mexican Soulja Alvarez, nicknamed Canelo.

Fighting for the first time since losing his belts to Canelo in September a year ago, Golovkin knocked out the previously undefeated Steve Rolls in the fourth round on Saturday. That fight was heavily referenced by the Golovkin camp in the build-up to Saturday's super-middleweight contest, with Rolls similarly being a huge underdog.

"I understand this is a tremendous opportunity for me, but I've got to stay composed", said Rolls, who now lives in Toronto.

DAZN's ringside reporter Chris Mannix asked Golovkin whether or not he's interested in a third fight with Canelo and course, GGG's eyes lit up.

The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee expressed alarm at Trump's comments. "I think it's a mistake", said Graham, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

"Everybody knows", said Golovkin on plans for his next opponent.

"I wanted a little bit more upbeat, a little bit more rhythm and a little bit more speed", said Banks. I'm ready for September.

"The fans know who they want me to fight next". Just bring him, ask him.

"If you want Big Drama Show, please tell him". And this was also Golovkin's first bout with new trainer Johnathon Banks, after parting ways with longtime coach Abel Sanchez.

He split with long-time trainer Abel Sanchez and signed a lucrative six-fight deal with United States streaming company DAZN which may well smooth the way to a third bout with Alvarez, another DAZN fighter.

Now, on account of Golovkin's 39 wins (35 knockouts), one defeat and one draw. Well, you see, I went back to knockout.
