On October 18th, Golovkin added the WBC Interim Middleweight Title to his collection of world titles with a second round stoppage of MARCO ANTONIO RUBIO in front of a standing-room-only record crowd of 9,323 at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. He is now the mandatory challenger to full champion MIGUEL COTTO.
The knockout of Rubio improved Golovkin’s record to 31-0-0 (28KO’s), while serving as his 18th straight knockout. His knockout ratio of 90.32 is the highest among all active champions and the highest in the history of the middleweight division.
“I’m honored to win the WBC interim title and very thankful to be named the ‘Fighter of the Month’,” said Golovkin who is planning to soon visit the WBC’s Mexico City headquarters for the official presentation of his new belt.
Said WBC President MAURICIO SULAIMAN, “We are glad to have Gennady in the ranks of world champions of the Council. He told me at the end of the fight with Rubio that his dream was to have the green belt and he did it and now wants to be the overall champion.”
“He is an attraction in the business, besides being a great person and fighter.”
Stated TOM LOEFFLER, Managing Director of K2 PROMOTIONS; “This is a tremendous honor from the WBC for Gennady. With the huge crowd on hand and Gennady’s sensational performance, October 18th was a special night and we look forward to many more in the future.”
“He continues to distinguish himself as the most exciting and most internationally marketable star in boxing.”
Golovkin is slated to defend his world titles against former world title challenger MARTIN MURRAY on February 21st in Monaco, his third world title defense in the world’s most glamorous tourist location.
