Golovkin makes prediction for Canelo-Jacobs ahead of his fight with Rolls

Boxing superstar Gennady “GGG” Golvovkin (38-1-1, 34 KOs) and undefeated world-rated contender Steve Rolls (19-0, 10 KOs) kicked off their coast-to-coast media tour with a New York press conference on Monday at Madison Square Garden. Golovkin announced that he is bringing his Big Drama Show back to the “Mecca of Boxing” on June 8. The fight will be contested at a maximum weight of 164 Ibs. It will mark GGG’s debut on DAZN. “I’m very happy. I’m happy to go back to the sport, I’m happy to be back at Madison Square Garden. It’s a very interesting time for me. It’s an amazing time for the sport and an amazing time for boxing. Madison Square Garden, I feel like it’s my second home. [With Rolls,] it doesn’t matter who says what, it’s going to be me and you in the ring and may the strongest man win. I would like to wish him luck, and we’ll see what happens. I don’t have a lot of time left in my career, this is the time when we’ll be able to give our audience a good big show,” said Golovkin. Golovkin explained why he will fight at a maximum weight of 164 Ibs: “I wanted to try it out, try this weight, but it wasn’t that big of a deal for me to do this weight. And for my opponent, this would be a little more comfortable since he usually fights at 168. I wouldn’t want him to be uncomfortable.” Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez drops back down to middleweight to take up the next toughest challenge possible in the shape of current IBF middleweight champion Daniel Jacobs on Sunday, May 5. “GGG” has made a prediction on the match. “I think it’s very hard to predict. It’s going to be a very important fight for the middleweight division and for boxing in general. It’s pretty even keel. Everyone has a chance. Everyone has the possibility to win. This is boxing, this is even stuff. It’s going to be an interesting fight no matter what,” said Golovkin.
