The majority of bookmakers have priced Golovkin at between 1/6 and 1/8 for his bout against British born world IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook, with the homeboy and title challenger Brook trading at a top price of 5/1 with BetBright and 888Sport.

This may look a mismatch on paper, but the reality is somewhat different as Kell Brook, arguably, represents GGG’s sternest examination to date as a professional. The general consensus is that the power of Golovkin will once again prove far too powerful over the smaller man, but Kell Brook kills himself to make weight at welterweight and has looked in tremendous shape for this Middleweight WBC, IBO and IBF middleweight title unification bout.


Brook 36-0 (25 by KO) makes the move up two weight classes to face boxing’s bogeyman. To say the Sheffield man oozes confidence would be an understatement. His unbeaten record is impressive, but aside from the naturally big Shawn Porter, there is little to suggest that Brook has been built up or prepared for this moment (who has, it is GGG afterall!). Stoppages of Ionut Dan Ion, Frankie Gavin and Kevin Bizier signalled that Brook was in need of challenging the very best. Golovkin 35-0 (32 by KO) is on a 22-fight knockout streak. He has knocked out every opponent he has faced in a world title fight, with a haunting highlight reel showcasing his devastating natural possession of power for the division.

Brook aside, the only viable challengers in his weight class are Billy Joe Saunders, Chris Eubank Jnr and Daniel Jacobs. But it is Mexican sensation and very brief WBC Middleweight champion Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez who is the man most associated with Golovkin. One could very easily have been mistaken for thinking that it was Alvarez fighting Golovkin on Saturday (September 10th), as the war of words has continued between the two camps in recent weeks. Alvarez will fight the week after against WBO Light Middleweight champion Liam Smith, but this bout at the O2 Arena on Saturday night is the one everyone is looking forward to on British shores.

It is conceivable that Kell Brook could be up on the scorecards after half way, he has the ability and boxing IQ to pull that off. There is a feeling that GGG will find the shots to wear him down and get the fight stopped. If the general consensus is correct, then somewhere between rounds 7-9. BetVictor are offering 10/1, 12/1 and 14/1 respectively for GGG to win in 7, 8 or 9, so that makes some sense as boxing betting tips for this fight.
