Gennady Golovkin: 'Willie Monroe Jr will be a good test'

WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin believes that Willie Monroe Jr will provide him with a "good test" when they face each other on Saturday night.

Gennady Golovkin has revealed that he wants to prove that he can adapt to any style when facing Willie Monroe Jr on Saturday night.

The WBA middleweight champion has recorded 32 successive victories in the professional ranks, including 19 stoppage wins in a row, and the Kazakh fighter has admitted that he wants to make a further statement against his southpaw opponent in California.

The 33-year-old is quoted by Yahoo Sports as saying: "I just like fights. I like lots of action, lots of fun. This is why I have this career.

"Different style for me, but this is a good test for me. I want to show my fans that I beat any style. I can beat a southpaw. I know this fight is not easy for me, but I like a drama show. I like a good fight."

In February, Golovkin was taken past 10 rounds for the first time in his career before he stopped Martin Murray.
