Review by AllTheBestFights.com: 2020-12-18, pretty good fight between Gennady Golovkin and Kamil Szeremeta: it gets three stars (take a look at our ranking of the best boxing fights of 2020).
The former Olympian, current IBF and Ibo Mw champion Gennady Golovkin entered this fight with a professional record of 40-1-1 (35 KOs=87%) and he is ranked as the No.2 middleweight in the world. The only man who stopped him in a draw, and also defeated GGG in 2018, was current #1 Mw Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez, but both fights ended in a controversial split and majority decisions (Saul Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady Golovkin I and the 4-stars fight and “The Ring magazine” Fight of the Year 2018 Gennady Golovkin vs Saul Canelo Alvarez II). After this second bout GGG has beat Steve Rolls (Gennady Golovkin vs Steve Rolls) and Sergiy Derevyanchenko (Users’ boxing Fight of the Year 2019, Gennady Golovkin vs Sergiy Derevyanchenko). If you want to watch two more spectacular Golovkin matches, we can suggest you, Gennadiy Golovkin vs Kell Brook and Gennadiy Golovkin vs Nobuhiro Ishida, both rated with four stars.
His opponent, the undefeated Kamil Szeremeta, has a perfect record of 21-0-0 (5 knockouts) and he entered as the No.23 in the same weight class. In his last three fights he has won over Andrew Francillette, Edwin Palacios and Oscar Cortes. Szeremeta vs Golovkin is valid for the IBF and IBO World middleweight titles (Golovkin’s first defense).
