Golovkin-Rubio “Mexican Style” Kick Off

On October 18th at the StubHub Center in Carson California, Gennady “GGG” Golovkin makes his west coast debut against rugged veteran Marco Antonio Rubio. The Mexican is a serious underdog, yet he rides the momentum of a six fight winning streak and should draw love from the southern California crowd. While Golovkin, the German based Kazakhstan native, is yet to taste defeat as a professional prize fighter. This afternoon the two fighters and their teams met in downtown Los Angeles to officially announce their promotion, which is being dubbed “Mexican Style”.

Tom Loeffler of K2 Promotions emceed the event and was clearly excited to be bringing his star middleweight to the LA area. “We’ve had a great response for bringing Gennady Golovkin here”, said Loeffler, “the presale at the StubHub Center has been the biggest we’ve ever had.” Sampson Lewkowicz, who represents Rubio, was very complimentary of K2 and their ability to make the negotiation process drama free. “K2 is A to Z one of the best promoters and easy to work with”, said Lewkowicz. He also promised Golovkin that he’d have his hands full ‘Mexican style’ and that this would be his toughest fight to date.

It looks like WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (30-0, 27 KOs) won’t be getting the big fight that he and his promoter Tom Loeffler of K2 Promotions were hoping for in his next fight in October.

WBC interim 160 pound champion Marco Antonio Rubio (59-6-1, 51 KOs) is saying that he’ll be fighting Golovokin next on October 18th.

“Since Miguel Cotto didn’t want to fight me, we’re fighting GGGboxing [Golovkin] October 18. I never back down from anyone. The battle is coming,” Rubio said.

Rubio has power but he’s not someone that will challenge Golovkin in any way. I rate Rubio below Curtis Stevens, a fighter that Golovkin recently stopped in 8 round.
