Meanwhile, with respect to his most recent victory, GGG said "I love knockouts and I love NY, it was a great night all around".

Golovkin's price to win is much too high to even bother looking at, so we'll see where the value is in the over/under for Saturday's action.

2016 U.S. Olympian, super welterweight Charles Conwell picked up a ten-round decision over Courtney Pennington to win the USBA super welterweight title and the first bout of the evening saw Nikita Ababiy scored a viral first-round knockout of Juan Barajas. In the second, Rolls (10-1) hit him with a left hook and a left jab that snapped Golovkin's head back. He stayed patient - even holding off and not throwing punches despite getting Rolls in a vulnerable position. Rolls' resume is as unimpressive as it gets and it's clear this is a tune-up fight for GGG before a possible trilogy showdown with Canelo in September.

Turkey issues note to Iceland over 'disrespect' to footballers
Turkish media outlet NTV reports that Turkey has delivered a formal diplomatic protest to Iceland regarding the incidents. To add fuel to the fire, the immigration control took a very long time to process the passports of players and staff.

Talking who his next opponent should be Golovkin said that "everybody knows". "I told my coach, 'OK I see it now, I see, I just need a little bit of time'". Golovkin shared his elation in the post-fight interview, in the boastful manner typified by the GGG fight fans have grown to love/expect. "Just bring him, just ask him".

Golovkin (39-1-1, 35 KOs) made a number of key changes heading into the scheduled 12-round fight.

Since then, he's signed a three-year, six-fight deal with DAZN worth $100 million, parted ways with longtime trainer Abel Sanchez over a monetary dispute and recently hired Johnathon Banks as his new trainer. Right now, I feel completely different because I came back to my knockout.
