On Saturday, September 10, IBF Welterweight title holder Kell Brook will attempt to defeat one of the best fighters in boxing, and possibly the hardest pound for pound puncher in the entire sport, WBC/WBA/IBF/IBO Middleweight champion Gennady 'GGG' Golovkin, in front of 20,000 of his ardent supporters at the O2 Arena in London, England.

On Saturday, September 10, WBC, WBA, IBF and IBO Middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin will take on his widely perceived "toughest test to date" in IBF Welterweight titlist Kell Brook, in front of a capacity crowd at the O2 Arena in London, England.

When participating in the most demanding sport on the planet, most great fighters and trainers will insist that mental preparation is just as important as, if not more crucial than the physical development and planning throughout the weeks leading into a big-time event.

It's become common knowledge throughout the boxing community that eight division world titlist Manny Pacquiao wants another shot at Floyd Mayweather's undefeated record before he hangs up the gloves for good.

In what is being heralded by many as a pound for pound pairing, and somewhat of a mythical match-up materialized, current IBF Welterweight champion Kell Brook will jump up two weight divisions and 13 pounds to take on the "Goliath" of the Middleweight division, Gennady Golovkin, for Triple G's WBC, IBF and IBO 160 pound world titles on Saturday, September 10, in front of a sold out crowd at the O2 Arena in London, England.

Two weeks ago, after former four division world titlist Adrien Broner was released from a 30-day incarceration, the trash-talking fighter from Cincinnati stated to ESNews that he eventually wanted to land a match-up against future Hall of Famer Manny Pacquiao.

Although the match-up between Manny Pacquiao and Jessie Vargas won't officially be announced until September 8 in Beverly Hills, California, the eight division world titlist has already begun preparing for the current WBO Welterweight champion at the famed Elorde Gym in Manila.

At a recent media day in San Diego, CA, lineal Middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez addressed the boxing press, and was immediately seen with an apparent "shiner" around his right eye.

On Wednesday, August 31, Canelo Alvarez and Golden Boy Promotions hosted a media workout in San Diego, California.

When current WBO Welterweight champion Jessie Vargas received the call from influential manager Cameron Dunkin that we would indeed be receiving the headlining slot for November 5, opposite future Hall of Famer Manny Pacquiao, he was ecstatic in receiving this seemingly long overdue opportunity.
