Well it seems like Gennandy Golovkin (33-0, 30 KO’s) has finally gotten a meaningful fight.  Not only that, it will be on Pay Per View.  His opponent for October 17th, the hard punching destroyer, David Lemieux (34-2, 31 KO’s).  These two are hands down the hardest punchers in the Middleweight division, if not the two hardest pound for pound punchers in the world.  Save the date to watch this fight, because this will be a huge “drama show”, as Golovkin would say.  It will be an amazing fight, that somehow I doubt will go the distance, and this is the fight that the hardcore boxing fan craves for.  Golovkin holds the highest KO rate in Middleweight championship history at 91%, while the hard hitting Canadian, David Lemeiux has a KO rate of 89%.  A knockout out of some sort, to go along with several brutal knockdowns, is all but guaranteed in this one.  Fight fans have been waiting for a war like this, and they will finally get one for sure.

Gennady Golovkin is coming off of a fairly easy fight against Willie Monroe Jr, where I am convinced that he let him dance around a hit him for a few rounds.  Maybe to show other fighters that he isn’t in fact invincible, and someone should finally step up and face him.  Once Golovkin decided enough was enough (with Monroe), what did he do?  What he always does, he knocked him out.  Monroe never stood a chance, and everyone knew it.  The TKO victory came in the 6th round.

David Lemieux on the other hand, is coming off of a grueling 12 round unanimous decision victory against Hassan N’Dam.  This was a war for the vacant IBF Middleweight titie,  Lemieux clobbered N’Dam throughout the 12 rounds of action, knocking him down 4 times, but N’Dam would not go away.  He got Lemieux tired in several rounds, because Lemieux was hitting him with everything he had, and N’Dam just kept getting up.  N’Dam actually won a lot of the rounds in their fight, and if it wasn’t for the knockdowns, the scorecards would have been close.

The fight between Golovkin and Lemieux will take place on October 17th, live on HBO PPV, at Madison Square Garden in New York City.  Gennady Golovkin will be defending his WBA/IBO/WBCinterim Middleweight Titles in a unification match with David Lemieux who will be putting up his newly acquired IBF Middleweight championship.  This will be an all out war, and not for the faint of heart, as two legitimate destroyers go head to head for Middleweight bragging rights.
