Undefeated Unified World Middleweight Champion Tapped For Ceremonial First Pitch Today Before Dodgers vs. Rockies Game
LOS ANGELES (September 10, 2017) — Boxing‘s No. 1 superhero and undefeated WBC/WBA/IBF/IBO Middleweight World Champion, GENNADY “GGG” GOLOVKIN, kicked off Fight Week by serving up the hard cheese when he took the mound at Dodger Stadium.
Currently boxing’s longest-reigning world champion, Golovkin will be threw the ceremonial first pitch before the Dodgers vs. Rockies game this afternoon. Golovkin, who completed his most rigorous training camp ever on Saturday, at The Summit Gym, the high-altitude training complex in Big Bear, Calif., pitched on just one day’s rest, but hey, that’s what superheroes do!
“Gennady threw the heater today, just like he will on September 16 against Canelo,” said trainer Abel Sanchez.
Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs) who has been middleweight champion since 2010, is in deep training for his 19th consecutive title defense – one short of the all-time record – against lineal and Ring Magazine Middleweight World Champion and Mexican icon Canelo Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs).
