Gennady Golovkin will return to the boxing ring for the first time in over a year when he faces Ryota Murata for the IBF, IBO and WBA middleweight titles this Saturday, April 9th at Saitama Super Arena in Japan.
Golovkin was one of the biggest stars in the boxing world back in 2018. He had knockout wins over David Lemieux and Kell Brook, and a decision win over Daniel Jacobs set up his first fight with Canelo Alvarez. The fight with Canelo ended up a draw and in the rematch a year later, GGG lost via majority decision. Many boxing fans and experts felt like GGG did enough to win both fights. After the second Canelo loss GGG did not remain in the spotlight with big fights like Canelo did. Instead GGG fought aging Canadian Steve Rolls, who he defeated easily via 4th round knockout. He’s since won two more fights (Sergiy Derevyanchenko and Kamil Szeremeta) to now hold the IBF and IBO middleweight titles.
Ryota Murata won the gold medal in the middleweight boxing division at the 2012 Olympics in London and has had a fairly successful professional career with a 16-2 record. He currently holds the WBA middleweight title.
A decisive win for GGG over Murata should reignite talks for a trilogy fight with Canelo Alvarez.
