    Golovkin Monte Carlo Card On PPV



    New York, NY
    (2/25/13) - On March 30th at the beautiful Monte Carlo Casino in Monaco, South Africa's premier promoter Rodney Berman (Golden Gloves Pty), in association with the Principality of Monaco, will stage the opening round of the much-anticipated "Monte-Carlo Million Dollar Super Four" tournament.
    The event, which is headlined by red-hot WBA middleweight champion Gennady "GGG" Golovkin (25-0, 22KO's) defending his title against former world champion, Nobuhiro Ishida (24-8-2, 9KO's), matches Edwin Rodriguez (22-0, 15KO's) against Argentinean Olympian Ezequiel Osvaldo Maderna (19-0, 13KO's) and former two-division world champion Zsolt Erdei (33-0, 18KO's) squaring off against Denis Grachev (12-1-1, 8KO's) in the opening round of the tournament. The two finalists will split a $1,000,000 total purse on a 60-40 basis, in Monaco in July as part of the commemoration of Nelson Mandela's 95th Birthday Celebration.
    The European junior middleweight title bout between champion Sergei Rabthenko, of Russia, and Adriano Nicchi, of Italy, will also be featured.
    With a huge interest for the event across the globe, especially here in the US, a deal has been reached where the entire event on March 30 will be staged live on PPV, distributed in the United States by Integrated Sports Media for live viewing at 3:00 p.m. ET/12:00 p.m. PT, on both cable and satellite pay-per-view via iN Demand, DIRECTV, DISH and Avail-TVN, for a suggested retail price of only $24.95.
    "I look forward to bringing US viewers an exciting afternoon of boxing action featuring the nonstop action of Gennady Golovkin, who is quickly becoming one of boxing's biggest stars, in addition to the first leg of the much-anticipated Monte-Carlo Million Dollar Super 4 Tournament. This is an absolute huge event, not just in Monaco, but throughout the entire world, and we couldn't be happier to be a part of it," said Doug Jacobs, President of Integrated Sports Media.
    The event on the March 30 will mark the first professional boxing card to take place in the country since 2006. Monaco, one of the most exclusive vacation destinations in the world and situated on the Mediterranean Sea in South West Europe, Monaco attracts millions of visitors each year. The Monte Carlo Casino, owned and operated by theSociété des bains de mer de Monaco, is the premier casino destination in Europe. The Monte Carlo Casino continues to attract some of the wealthiest and most well known celebrities and aristocrats throughout the world.
    The event is promoted by Rodney Berman's Golden Gloves. The Golovkin-Ishida bout is promoted in association with K2 Promotions, while the Rodriguez-Maderna and Erdei-Grachev bouts are promoted in association with DiBella Entertainment.

    I am really looking forward to seeing GGG step up. His style is intriguing, particularly how he seems to rely on being, seemingly, both vulnerable and open, but always in a position to deliver power without over-committing.

    Golovkin seems to know that his opponents see the (obvious and perhaps deliberate) openings in his style, and that in itself sets up the power shots.

    Not sure it will work with Ward though.

    Ggg uses a nice counter punch style. He jabs. He moves. He throws combos. The only time he drops a bomb is when he counterpunches .smart. Why waste a power shot? When the opponant throws he leaves himself open for a split. Time to strike... Ward doesn't fight pretty but he fights to win and win by breaking the guy down and throwing hurtful short shots. Good style matchup if they meet up. Wards style plus wards size makes ward 2-1 favorite.

    Let Golovkin have Strum, then maybe Geale. Wait, the first match-up involves the WBA being logical. Forget that

    How about Froch or Kessler? Even Edwin Rodriguez. Anyway, hopefully we will get to see Gennady in with Martinez and/or Ward within the next 18 months. Actually, letting Brian Vera have a payday and shot at Golovkin, before or after Strum; would be entertaining. Brian Vera V Gennady Golovkin, while it lasted, would be a real blood-bath and possibly, for a while, a good test for Golovkin; particularly after Vera's recent win over Dzinziruk.

    Yep, Vera would really train and, whilst remaining one dimensional, walk through bullets for that one; which would suit Gennady perfectly.

    i think the only guy who gives ggg trouble is ward. not only skill and boxing iq wise but also size...
    if ward can deal with ggg's power then ggg would have some problems..

    however i think ggg knocks out kessler, froch, rod, vera- who is all action, sturm would run.

    yes i said froch, froch is too cocky for his own good, he has a good chin but i recall a shot *** taylor out boxing him and putting him on his ***, along with buzzing him a few times with right hands and ggg has more power than taylor..

    all good fights...

    I agree Amayseng; Froch is too cocky and open for his own good. Sure he is tough and fit, but his comments before and after the Ward fight were a little rich. Froch, IMO, is a terrible boxer and a good fighter. Mostly it's his before-mentioned attributes combined with that awkwardness that serves him well; as he has a style that's hard to deal with unless you know and can execute boxing fundamentals well and fast under pressure.

    If Ward fights Froch again he will severely embarrass him.

    Ward, I think, will also beat GGG. I think GGG knows this and that's why you don't hear GGG mention Ward's name as an opponent. Ward knows how GGG is moving and what he is doing in the ring - you can tell from his commentary of the GGG V Rosado fight.

    You're comments about Strum and GGG were both funny and correct; yes Strum would run. I doubt Strum would take the fight now, particularly after his confidence took a beating from guys like Soliman and Geale; the former of which GGG would certainly beat.

    true, also sturm ducked ggg for years, i read an article siting sturm paid some money to put ggg on the shelf.
    maybe if ggg can continue winning and being impressive he can possibly move up in two years and a ward fight would be more competitive.
