Gennady Golovkin vs. Vanes Martirosyan fight card, predictions, HBO boxing, odds GGG’s pursuit of record-tying middleweight title defense could prove to be surprise.
On this Cinco de Mayo Saturday, undefeated middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin will be stepping into the ring, however, it just won’t be against the marquee opponent that everyone was expecting. Following the performance-enhancing drama that led to Canelo Alvarez’s removal from a much-anticipated rematch, GGG (37-0-1, 33 KOs) will now be facing off with Vanes Martirosyan.

Now, one important aspect of this fight to keep in mind is that only GGG’s WBA and WBO middleweight championships will be on the line. With Martirosyan (36-3-1, 21 KOs) not being recognized by the IBF as the No. 1 contender in the division, a defense of that belt is off the table.
While the scheduled fight with Canelo is not going down on Saturday as originally anticipated, all eyes will be on this fight to see whether the polarizing GGG can remain an unbeaten warrior. Should he pull off yet another win in his professional career, then given the six-month time period of Alvarez’s suspension, things should be lining up for the rematch we were all waiting for this September.
