A win by Golovkin and he will tie Bernard Hopkins for most consecutive middleweight title defenses at 20.
While not the most ideal situation, this is the best-case scenario considering the circumstances, and we still get to see one of the biggest names in the sport.
Martiosyan, known as ‘Nightmare’, has failed in both his world title bouts so far and hasn’t fought for two years.
