Gennadiy Golovkin looks to make history in his return to the ring on Friday, Dec. 18, when he put his IBF middleweight title on the line against Kamil Szeremeta at the Hard Rock Live at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida. The event can be seen exclusively on DAZN in the United States and Canada.
The bout has been discussed since Golovkin beat Sergiy Derevyanchenko in his last time out in October 2019 that was a "Fight of Year" candidate, and Szeremeta stopped Oscar Cortes on the undercard.
A Golovkin (40-1-1, 35 KOs) victory would be his 21st defense of a middleweight title, breaking the record "GGG" currently shares with Bernard Hopkins.
"This is not just any fight. It is a fight with great meaning," Golovkin said in a press release. "I always have the greatest respect for all of my opponents. I have really missed boxing, and I wanted to fight this year. The goal — fighting for a record 21st successful world title defense."
Szeremeta is undefeated in 21 fights (21-0). The mandatory challenger earned the distinction with three wins in 2019 over Andrew Francillette, Edwin Palacios, and Cortes.
"I want this title for Poland and my family," Szeremeta said. "GGG is a great champion, one of the best in history, but it is time for a replacement. Thank you for the great chance. I must take my opportunity to be the first world middleweight champion from Poland."
Szeremeta is expected to be a stay-busy fight for Golovkin. For "GGG", a victory would only engulf the flames for a trilogy affair with Canelo Alvarez. Will Szeremeta be able to come in and spoil the party?
