Gennady Golovkin picked up his thirty-fourth win in a row in Madison Square Garden when he defeated David Lemieux by way of technical knockout in the eighth round. The two gathered for the media after the bout’s conclusion for the post-fight press conference which can be watched in its entirety above.
Boxing was able to capitalize on the fact that it has been a slow month for fights in the world of mixed martial arts with their HBO pay-per-view in MSG, a building which UFC cannot run an event in due to the fact that MMA is illegal in New York.
Golovkin has the potential to become the next big thing in boxing and if his streak continues, fans could start clamoring for Floyd Mayweather Jr. to come out of retirement for a super fight.
