Gennady Golovkin’s next opponent – the Canadian Steve Rolls (19-0-0) is obviously pretty confident in his skill set. The unbeaten35-year-old will face the former WBA “Super”, IBF and WBC middleweight champ on June 8 at Madison Square Garden.
The two met earlier today for their official press conference in New York and the underdog vowed to shock the world, as he’s been doing a lot of reading lately and noticing how the media is calling this a “tune-up” fight for Golovkin (38-1-1).
“I’ve been doing a lot of reading lately and there are a couple things I keep coming across – ‘Who is this guy?’ and ‘This is going to be a tune-up fight.’ I’m the underdog that’s been hungry for this position,” Rolls said in talking about how so few boxing fans and members of the media know who he is.
“Make no mistake this isn’t a tune-up. I’m coming to fight. And with everybody, who doesn’t know me now, after June 8, you won’t forget me. I’ve got much respect for Gennady Golovkin, but I’m coming to shock the world,” Rolls said.
