Golovkin vs Martirosyan: Face Off (Video)

Watch Gennady Golovkin and Vanes Martirosyan go face-to-face ahead of their May 5th fight on HBO.

Well, there’s hasn’t been much time to promote this late replacement fight for Gennady Golovkin, set for Cinco de Mayo, so the promoters are squeezing some activities together.

During yesterday’s open media workouts for both fighters, promoter Tom Loeffler also used the opportunity to have the fighters face off with one another, something we typically see in an official press conference. But with there only being a couple of weeks before the fight is set to take place, there’s not much time for all that hoopla.

Check out the video of that above courtesy of our colleagues at Fight Hub TV, who were on hand to capture the festivities.

Martirosyan (36-3-1, 21 KOs) isn’t expected to give Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs) much of a run for his money, but he says he coming to pull off a major upset. Martirosyan is really a career junior middleweight who will be moving up for this short notice fight, but he’s also been out of action since a May 2016 unanimous decision loss to Erislandy Lara.

Will he be able to do the unthinkable? We won’thave to wait long to find out.
