After seemingly endless false starts, Gennadiy Golovkin is officially set to defend his IBF middleweight title against undefeated mandatory challenger Kamil Szeremeta on Friday, December 18th. The fight airs live on DAZN from Hollywood, Florida’s Hard Rock Hotel.
He’s seen date after date fall through for this matchup due to COVID and injury, including ones in February, March, April, and June.
Szeremeta (21-0, 5 KO) made his first stateside appearance on that same card, needing just 3:45 to wipe out the overmatched Oscar Cortes. He’s spent the majority of his eight-year career in his native Poland, though he did make brief sojourns to Italy and France to defend the European middleweight title against Alessandro Goddi and Andrew Francilette on their home turf.
