poster

Gennady “GGG” Golovkin faces off against Britain’s Martin Murray on Saturday in Le Salle des Étoiles in Monte Carlo. HBO will carry the fight at 5:45PM ET, encore at 10:45PM ET. Channel 5 has it in the UK at 22:00.

Golovkin is coming off 18 straight knockouts and enters the fight as a huge favorite. While bets on who will win the fights are completely lop-sided, there are still some interesting odds in the over/under and round bets.

Gennady Golovkin is one of today’s most feared boxers. And with an outstanding 31-0 record, his reputation is well warranted.

GGG was last in action in a victory over Marco Antonio Rubio with a second-round kayo at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. That bout followed vicious knockout victories over Australian Daniel Geale and title holder Osumanu Adama.

Martin Murray (29-1-1, 12 KOs), 32 years old, is a solid mid-level contender. He has wins over respectable opposition, but has faltered against high-level competition: In 2011, he travelled to Germany to draw against Felix Sturm. In April 2014 Murray suffered his first professional loss when he fell to Sergio Martinez.

In his most recent fight, Martin beat Domenico Spada with a technical decision– Spada had suffered a fight-ending cut over his eye. Before facing Spada, Murray had defeated Ukrainian Max Bursak and Ghanaian Ishmael Tetteh.

Over/under odds are fairly tight for Saturday’s matchup. With Golovkin sporting an incredible 90% knockout ratio and only two of his last 18 fights having gone past the seventh round, the forecast for the bout is for an easrly stoppage within the first half of the fight.
