If you opt out of UFC 197 Saturday night, there will be a key boxing bout featured on HBO, as Gennady Golovkin defends his WBA (super), IBF, IBO and WBC interim middleweight titles against Dominic Wade.
Unbeaten in 34 career fights, Golovkin is viewed as one of boxing’s brightest stars. He finished David Lemieux last October and has scored finishes in 31 of his bouts all together.
Wade is 180 and coming off a victory over Sam Soliman.
The event takes place inside The Forum in Los Angeles beginning at 10 p.m. ET. HBO is offered as a free preview by DirecTV this weekend.
