Gennady Golovkin vs. David Lemieux Set for October 17

So far in this decade, Gennady Golovkin has been the sport’s most avoided fighter.

Yunieski Gonzalez Gets Robbed but Makes Statement at Light Heavyweight

Saturday night in Las Vegas on HBO, unified light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev made a mandatory defense against the IBF’s idea of a No. 1 contender in Nadjib Mohammedi, knocking the Frenchman out in three rounds.

Nadjib Mohammedi is NOT A Legitimate Contender

Yesterday vs. Washington, he tossed eight scoreless innings, which extends his scoreless streak to a ridiculous 43 2/3 innings. Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke was masterful again [...]
