Saturday, March 30, Gennady Golovkin (25-0) will defend his WBA middleweight title against Nobuhiro Ishida (24-8-2). The bout will be held at the Salle des Etoiles in Monte Carlo, Monaco and will likely be televised on international television.
For Golovkin, the night is an opportunity for him to stay active and add to his undefeated record as he campaigns for a major fight within the U.S. market. With fighters such as Sergio Martinez and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr in the middleweight division, Golovkin should be provided with a significant fight opportunity in the near future as it is evident that Golovkin is a threat to anyone in the division.
On the other hand, Ishida is coming into this bout as a major underdog and will be looking to pull off an upset to claim a world title. Therefore, Golovkin should not take Ishida lightly due to the fact that Ishida has a major upset over James Kirkland (31-1) on his fight resume.
Nevertheless, the boxing world should expect to see a dominate performance put on by Golovkin as Ishida has lost two consecutive fights. Even more, Ishida does not possess much punching power as only 9 of his 24 victories have come by way of knockout, which should result in Golvokin being overly aggressive in an attempt to be the first to ever knockout Ishida.
In the end, it should be interesting to depict what type of performance Golovkin puts on against Ishida. It is no secret that Golovkin will be a heavy favorite in the fight, but a TKO victory would add to his fight resume as the first to score a knockout victory over Ishida.
