STEVE ROLLS VOWS TO DROP THE CURTAIN ON GOLOVKIN’S BIG DRAMA SHOW
NEW YORK (June 1, 2019) — Inspired by the Raptors run to the NBA Championship Finals, undefeated Top-10 contender Steve Rolls is determined to give his hometown of Toronto another reason to cheer. Like the Raptors, who are ahead 1-0 in their challenge of the two-time defending champion Golden State Warriors (Rolls attended Game 1), Rolls will be the underdog when he faces boxing’s pound-for-pound superstar attraction Gennadiy “GGG” Golovkin, who successfully defended his middleweight titles a record 20 consecutive times — 18 by knockout. Golovkin and Rolls will go mano a mano in a 12-round rumble, which will be contested at a maximum weight of 164 lbs. and streamed live on DAZN, next Saturday, June 8, from the Mecca of Boxing, Madison Square Garden.
“You can look at me as an underdog but in my mind, I’m the best investment this side of Wall Street,” said Rolls (19-0, 10 KOs). “Triple G is going to face boxing’s version of Kawhi Leonard on June 8.”
“Boxing is no game,” responded Golovkin (38-1-1, 34 KOs), from Karaganda, Kazakhstan. “I want a war. I have trained for a war. That’s why boxing fans enjoy the Big Drama Show. I come to fight.”
GGG vs. Rolls kicks off the exclusive six-fight, three-year global partnership between GGG Promotions and DAZN, the world’s fastest-growing sports streaming platform.
