Gennady Gennadyevich Golovkin is a Kazakhstani professional boxer who currently holds the unified WBA (Super), WBC, IBF and IBO middleweight titles. As of July 2016, he is ranked as the world’s number one middleweight by The Ring magazine and BoxRec. He is also ranked as the world’s third best boxer, pound for pound, by The Ring and BoxRec.
A calculating pressure fighter, Golovkin is known for his powerful and precise punching, balance and methodical movement. With an unbroken streak of stoppages dating back to 2008, he holds the highest knockout percentage – 91.8% – in middleweight championship history. He is also said to have one of the best chins in modern boxing, having never been knocked down or knocked out in a total of 375 fights, neither as a professional nor amateur.
Golovkin is in negotiations with Danny Jacobs for March 2017 fight, but it is unclear whether that will take place. Golovkin is also in perpetual negotiations for a mega-fight with Canelo Alvarez, which is very lightly penciled in for September 2017
