It should be noted that this will be Gennady Golovkin's first meeting on the DAZN streaming service following the signing of a multi-million dollar contract. For the return to the ring, the GGG team deliberately chose Madison Square Garden in New York, where Golovkin won most of his major victories, including the last in that arena – against American Daniel Jacobs.
GGG Promotions, an advertising company run by Gennady Golovkin, was listed as the organizer of the upcoming fight of the Kazakh boxer with Rolls. At the moment confirmed six fights on this evening of boxing.
Interestingly, Golovkin's duel will not win any championship belts for the first time in a long time. As you know, Gennady lost all his titles in the fight against Mexican Saul Alvarez.
