Check out Gennady Golovkin in NYC
By Michael Woods
WBA/IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin, who fights Greg Proksa on Saturday night on HBO, spent Wednesday in New York City making the media rounds at Madison Square Garden, the Empire State Building, and a dinner honoring the 2012 Kazakhstan Olympic medal winners.
Check out this video from Golovkin's NYC tour.
HBO's "Boxing After Dark" from the Turning Stone Casino in Verona, N.Y. kicks off at 9:45 p.m. ET. Golovkin's trainer, Abel Sanchez, has whetted appetites for the kid by telling the press he has thunder in both hands and that he's better than Hall of Famer Terry Norris, who Sanchez trained and was a junior middleweight superstar in the early 1990s.
