Golovkin v Brook to kick off end of year boxing feast

With Kell Brook now just a matter of weeks away from the biggest contest of his career against the undefeated Gennady Golovkin, the pre-fight countdown is certainly gaining momentum, with both fighters showing no sign of backing down.

The undefeated Kazakhstani is unsurprisingly in confident mood ahead of his clash with the Brit, stating that Brook faces that distinct possibility of being knocked out if he turns the bout into a ‘street fight’ still contest. The 34-year-old is the overwhelming favourite for his clash with Brook in the betting odds among bookmakers, with Brook certain going to have to produce the fight of his life if he is to overcome the current IBF and WBC middleweight champion.

Despite being the reigning IBF welterweight champion and undefeated himself in 36 professional career fights, with many within the boxing world not offering the Brit a chance at London’s O2 Arena. Golovkin is the favourite for the bout on September 10th, with a future contest with Mexico’s Saul Alvarez potentially awaiting the experienced fighter.

Meanwhile, in the lightweight division, Manchester’s Anthony Crolla has stated that he wants to create “a legacy” through defending his WBA lightweight title against Venezuelan Jorge Linares in September. Crolla successfully retained his belt for the first time against Ismael Barroso in May, and believes he will need to produce a career-best performance to defeat Linares. The British fighter first claimed the WBA lightweight title at the Manchester Arena last November, and will be hoping a return to the same venue will help him to overcome his skilful and powerful opponent this time around.

Elsewhere, despite many writing off his chances, Liam Smith has predicted a knockout victory over Saul Alvarez at the home of the Dallas Cowboy’s next month. Alvarez is known for adding at least 20 pounds on fight night, which was evident in his recent victory over Amir Khan, however Smith is unconcerned, remaining confident of defending his title across the pond.

Boxers have always had nicknames; sometimes chosen by themselves, sometimes bestowed upon them by the public or some other third party.

There’ve been some doozies, too. Jake “The Raging Bull” LaMotta, “Sugar” Ray Robinson, Seales, or Leonard, “Iron” Mike Tyson, or...
