EDITOR Matt Christie’s preview to the amazing clash of bangers Gennady Golovkin and David Lemieux can be found in this week’s issue. Here’s a snippet:
THE sport of boxing has lost its leader. Whether Floyd Mayweather’s retirement is permanent or not there is a gaping hole/opportunity waiting to be filled by a superstar in waiting. The auditions begin this Saturday (October 17) when middleweight slayers Gennady Golovkin and David Lemieux clash in a bout that could be a heart-pumping, can’t-blink-won’t-blink barnburner. If that’s not endorsement enough, three
160lb belts – Lemieux’s IBF, Golovkin’s WBA Super and Interim WBC – will be at stake inside Madison Square Garden in New York.
