WBC, IBO, WBA and IBF middleweight champion, Gennady Golovkin, feels Kell Brook will provide him with a stern test when the pair square off on September 10th at the O2 Arena, in London.

Brook, the current IBF welterweight champion, is moving up to 160lbs for this contest, which is undoubtedly his biggest test to date.

Golovkin is widely regarded as the most feared fighter on the planet today and has stopped 32 of his 35 opponents inside the distance.

“This is the biggest test for me,” said Golovkin. “Kell’s coming to the middleweight division.

“I remember fighters in history, Sugar Ray Robinson, Sugar Ray Leonard, Margarito, De La Hoya. Everybody has problems [with certain opponents], because of different speed, different timing, different power.

“I am very excited. I am very happy to be here in London. Right now, I can give the UK fans an amazing event. I believe this is the biggest fight for us because I see Kell [and] I respect him. I respect his team, he has a very good and very strong team.

“I understand this is not easy, this is true. It is very serious business for us. I am ready 100 percent for September 10.

“I believe I will bring an amazing show, like a drama show. This is the biggest test for me because Kell is a true champion. It’s the biggest test for me, absolutely.”
