Tonight, live from the Turning Stone Casino in Verona, N.Y., undefeated WBA world middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (23-0, 20 KOs) will make his North America debut as he faces European middleweight champion Grzegorz Proksa (28-1, 21 KOs). The fight will be broadcast on HBO.
Also on the televised card will be a matchup between undefeated prospect Jonathan Gonzalez (15-0, 13 KOs) and once-beaten contender Sergiy Dzinziruk (36-1, 24 KOs). This bout was originally supposed to be for the WBC continental Americas super welterweight title, but the rumor I heard in the press room a little while ago was that Gonzalez had come in about nine pounds heavy.
I will be blogging live from media row once the broadcast begins.
