Rodney Berman: Martin Murray will not be another Marco Antonio Rubio for Gennady Golovkin

Promoter Berman expecting Murray to test Golovkin like never before

South African promoter Rodney Berman has made bold inroads into Europe and will be promoting Gennady Golovkin against Martin Murray, the WBA middleweight championship bout in Monte Carlo in February 2015. Here, the Golden Gloves CEO talks about the past, present and future.

Congratulations. Your recent tournament in Monte Carlo delivered high-quality match-ups. Presumably your partners in Monaco were very satisfied?

I would hope so. The objective is gaining publicity for the principality, encouraging tourism, that sort of thing. It was very well received internationally.
