GGG vs. David Lemieux on October 17th

Montreal slugger David Lemieux, also one of boxing's biggest hitters, will meet Golovkin to unify their 160-pound world titles Oct. 17 in an HBO PPV main event at Madison Square Garden in New York, K2 Promotions managing director Tom Loeffler, Golovkin's promoter, and Golden Boy's Oscar De La Hoya, who represents Lemieux, said Saturday.

It's a match that figures to be explosive -- a big drama show, as Golovkin would say -- between two of boxing's most crowd-pleasing and aggressive fighters, both of whom possess devastating punching power.

"In one word: finally," Loeffler told ESPN.com. "We've gone to great lengths to try to put unification fights together for Gennady. We have to give Lemieux and Golden Boy a lot of credit for stepping up to the plate. Gennady will not underestimate Lemieux. He is the biggest puncher he will have ever faced, and Gennady will be the biggest puncher Lemieux will have ever faced.

Good to see it's finally official. Although I wanted to see the Froch fight. :-(
Either way it should be good

Should be a good scrap. If GGG can eat DLs shots i think GGG stops him in 4. If he cant this shit could be interesting.
