After 16 months out of the ring, GENNADIY “GGG” GOLOVKIN puts his IBF and IBO middleweight titles on the line against WBA champion RYOTA MURATA live on DAZN from Saitama Super Arena, Japan. GGG looks to continue his middleweight resurgence this weekend in a long-awaited bout against WBA middleweight champion Ryota Murata. The two-time middleweight world champion captured both belts against Sergiy Derevyanchenko back in 2019, defending the straps against Kamil Szeremeta back in 2020. The Japanese star will be looking to register a third straight knockout win, having picked up the WBA middleweight title against American Rob Brant and defending the title against Steven Butler in 2019 to set up this bout with a pound-for-pound legend.
