Gennady Golovkin begins another busy year vs Adama
MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. (AP) -- Gennady Golovkin isn't the type of champion to sit on his belt.
That's why the unbeaten middleweight king is taking his fifth fight in 13 months against Osumanu Adama in Monte Carlo this weekend instead of waiting around for the big-name bouts he's hoping to land this year.
Golovkin (28-0, 25 KOs) simply can't sit still for very long, certainly not when he's on a 15-fight stoppage streak. After beating Curtis Stevens in early November, Golovkin got back into training in Big Bear, Calif., before Christmas.
His next fight is in the Salle des Etoiles in front of a small audience of Monte Carlo elites, and television coverage just about everywhere except the U.S. market.
