Golovkin defends his WBA Middleweight belt against tough Matthew Macklin of the UK. Mackin 29-4 (20 KOs) is gunning for the belt for the third time. In his first attempt, he lost a very disputed decision to Felix Sturm. His 2nd attempt was a game challenge of Sergio Martinez, where he was stopped in the 11th round. Golovkin, the highly-regarded beltholder, is taking on the toughest fighter in his career and looks to keep shining as he has been for the past couple years. A red-hot fighter, it has been 5 years since anyone has even lasted the distance with Golovkin, 26-0 (23 KOs). This is already Golovkin’s third appearance in the ring in 2013. Both fighters are 31 and appeared to be in fine fighting trim for Saturday’s encounter.

Unbeaten super middleweights Brandon Gonzalez, 17-0 (10 KOs) and 6’4″ South African Thomas Oosthuizen, 21-0-1 (13 KOs) meet in a 10-tounder.
