NEW YORK CITY, October 17, 2015 — Tonight,  WBA, IBO and WBC “Interim” Middleweight World Champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin, (33-0, 30KOs) and IBF Middleweight World Champion David Lemieux (34-2, 31 KOs) fight at the Theater at Madison Square Garden in advance of their anticipated matchups on October 17 at “The Mecca of Boxing” Madison Square Garden. The Middleweight World Championship Title Unification will be produced and distributed live by HBO Pay-Per-View.

Golovkin vs. Lemieux is one of the most anticipated bouts of the year breaking records for Madison Square by selling the most tickets during pre-sale for a major boxing event.

Glolovkin says, “This is the biggest test for me. He’s the IBF champ. It’s big situation, unification, Pay-Per-View. Right now it’s a very interesting situation to be in in the middleweight division. I think we have three or four fighters and it’s very important who is number one.”

His opponent, Lemieux counters, ”I am aware of his record but I am also aware of who I am and what I can bring to the table. My concern is the present and making sure I win… I am going to be a lion in there. Nothing is going to be in my way.”

Below is tonight’s bout sheet, along with the respective weights.
