NEW YORK CITY (October 20, 2015) Accolades from around the world continue to pour in for Boxing Superstar, Gennady “GGG” Golovkin, (34-0, 31KOs), following his memorable eighth round stoppage over David Lemieux, (34-3, 31KO’s) this past Saturday night in front of a sold-out crowd of 20,548 at Madison Square Garden.
Golovkin, of Karaganda, Kazakhstan now residing in Los Angeles, California, scored his 21st consecutive knockout in his 15th world championship defense and added the IBF Middleweight World Title to his existing WBA/IBO and WBC “Interim” Middleweight World Titles.
Golovkin vs. Lemieux also set a Madison Square Garden record, selling over $120,000 in merchandise inside the arena for the event in GGG’s fourth appearance at the venue.
“This was Gennady’s first title unification bout, his first Pay-Per-View and he clearly rose to the occasion in front of the sold-out crowd at Madison Square Garden,” said Tom Loeffler, Managing Director of K2 Promotions. “The response from the fans and media to this event has been extraordinary as Gennady has distinguished himself as the new face of boxing.”
