Gennady Golovkin to throw out first pitch for Dodgers

Boxing’s No. 1 superhero and undefeated WBC/WBA/IBF/IBO Middleweight World Champion, GENNADY “GGG” GOLOVKIN, will be kicking off Fight Week by serving up the hard cheese when he takes the mound at Dodger Stadium.  Currently boxing’s longest-reigning world champion, Golovkin will be throwing the ceremonial first pitch before the Dodgers vs. Rockies game, This Sunday!  September 10, at 1:10 p.m. PT.  Remaining tickets to the game can be purchased via www.dodgers.com.  Golovkin, who will complete his most rigorous training camp ever on Saturday, at The Summit Gym, the high-altitude training complex in Big Bear, Calif., will be pitching on just one day’s rest, but hey, that’s what superheroes do!

“Gennady will be throwing the heater on Sunday, just like he will on September 16 against Canelo,” said trainer Abel Sanchez.

Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs) who has been middleweight champion since 2010, is in deep training for his 19th consecutive title defense – one short of the all-time record – against lineal and RingMagazine Middleweight World Champion and Mexican icon Canelo Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs).  Canelo vs. Golovkin is the long-awaited showdown to determine supremacy of the storied middleweight division and arguably the pound-for-pound rankings.
