Gennady "GGG" Golovkin will look to rebound from his first career loss against undefeated Canadian middleweight Steve Rolls. However, it will be contested at a 164-pound catchweight, which sits between the middleweight and super middleweight divisions. While no belts are on the line, "GGG" will be looking to earn a third bout against Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.

Golovkin (38-1-1, 34 KO) is a heavy -3600 favorite coming into the boxing match. He previously held the World Boxing Alliance, World Boxing Council, and International Boxing Organization middleweight titles before losing a controversial majority decision to "Canelo." Prior to that, the Kazakhstani boxer was on a tear having knocked out the bulk of his foes. Golovkin easily made weight and looked great at 163 pounds.

Rolls (19-0, 10 KO) will look to shock the world as a +1800 underdog and make himself a household name. The Canadian has mostly fought within Canada and has only had two ShoBox appearances in the past. It's a huge opportunity for him, but one that most spectators aren't expecting him to seize upon. Rolls looked prepared at the weigh-in and officially came in at 163.8 pounds.

The co-main event will see two undefeated super middleweight prospects face off against one another. Ali Akmedov (14-0, 10 KO) has more knockout power and will be looking to impress against Marcus McDaniel (15-0, 2 KO). Another prospect on the card is junior middleweight Charles Conwell (9-0, 7 KO), who will take on Courtney Pennington (12-3-3, 5 KO).

The entire card will be aired on Dazn starting at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT, while the main card kicks off at 9 p.m ET/6 p.m. PT.
