Unbeaten WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin received a hero’s welcome in his native Kazakhstan over the weekend. On Friday Golovkin (31-0, 28 KOs) addressed a massive crowd of supporters at Nazarbayev University in the capital city of Astana. On Saturday, GGG held a formal press conference in Astana to discuss with the local media his upcoming world title defense against Martin Murray slated for Saturday, February 21st in Monte Carlo.

“Martin is a worthy opponent and is the number one middleweight in Europe as of today,” stated Golovkin. “I think it will be a fierce fight. He proved to be a very strong boxer during his last fight with Spada.”
