Photos: Golovkin and Macklin Preparing For Battle


New York, NY (5/28/13) – On June 29th, defending WBA/IBO champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (26-0, 23KO’s) meets Ireland’s top-rated former world title challenger Matthew “Mack The Knife” Macklin (29-4, 20KO’s) in their much-anticipated middleweight championship showdown at the MGM Grand Theaterat Foxwoods ® Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut.  The championship matchup will be the main event on the HBO Boxing After Dark® triple-header, which will be televised live on HBO® beginning at 9:45 p.m. ET/PT.


Both fighters recently took time out of their busy training schedules to talk about their upcoming bout and how things are going in camp.  Golovkin was his normal calm and collected self, while Macklin, who will be making the third attempt at claiming his first Middleweight World Championship, predicted an absolute war.  At the initial fight announcement press conference, Macklin predicted a KO over the reigning champion Golovkin, who currently holds the highest KO ratio in middleweight championship history as well as topping that list among all active current champions, and he isn’t backing off on his bold prediction as the fight nears. 


With the fight exactly one month away, both fighters already look to be in tremendous shape.


Below are photos from Golovkin’s camp at The Summit High Altitude Training Facility in Big Bear with head trainer Abel Sanchez, and Macklin’s at his brand new state-of-the-art facility, Macklin’s Gym Marbella (MGM) in beautiful Marbella, Spain.
