MONTE CARLO, January 30, 2014 — Boxing’s fastest rising superstar, Gennady “GGG” Golovkin is finalizing preparations for his tenth world title defense this Saturday, FEBRUARY 1 against world ranked challenger Osumanu Adama in Monte Carlo.

Golovkin, 28-0-0 (25KO”s), will defend his WBA/IBO world titles in the main event of Monte Carlo Boxing Bonanza for his return to Monaco at the Salles des Etoiles.

His outstanding performances in 2013 (four knockout victories) also earned him “Fighter of the Year” honors from USA Today.
