Gennady Golovkin and Ryota Murata completed final press conference in Saitama, ahead of their WBA-IBF middleweight unification fight this Saturday. 

“It’s my honor to fight Murata here in Japan. I deeply appreciate this fight finally realized with best efforts of people concerned under the coronavirus pandemic.  I respect Murata as a person”, Golovkin assured in a press release from Joe Koizumi. 

Golovkin also talked about his rival: “I could study Murata more deeply and our fight will be really worth watching”.

“I would like to repeat what Golovkin said.  Now that our fight scheduled in December was postponed, I truly thank people participating in this event for their great contributions to materialize it”, Murata expressed.

The Japanese responded to Golovkin’s words: “I could experience more sparring sessions with the postponement. I wish what I have been training will be shown in the ring”.
