Gennady “GGG” Golovkin and Kell “The Special One” Brook in New York City for a press conference to formally announce their highly anticipated international showdown on Saturday, September 10 at The O2 in London, England.
In the video, Golovkin’s promoter starts the hype train early, saying he expects a night of fireworks from the best middleweight and best welterweight in the world, with similar records of 35-0 and 36-0. Then Brook’s promoter chimes in and says he could talk about this fight for hours, with the issues of weight and size and so forth. He then says the fight will blow your mind.
Golovkin is his usual cheerful self, talking about how he’s ready and he wants to fight and make good fights. Brook is also confident heading into the bout.
The video also shows Harold Lederman talking about the fight and saying it should be an excellent match. But you’d think by the time his Hey Harold segment comes around, that he expects another Golovkin stoppage win.
The Golovkin vs. Brook bout will be televised live on HBO beginning at 5:30 p.m. ET/PT.
