The boxing world was sent into a flurry Friday, as Gennady Golovkin agreed to fight Kell Brook this September.
The two will meet for the unified middleweight title on September 10 from the O2 Arena in London.

Many consider the 34-year-old Golovkin (35-0) to be the pound-for-pound top boxer in the world. He is coming off his 32nd knockout finish, which was a second round stoppage of Dominic Wade in April.
Brook is a perfect 36-0 in his career and was scheduled to meet Jessie Vargas in September. He has 25 knockouts to his credit.
