Gennadiy Golovkin vs. Ryota Murata fight map, start time, stream guide.
This Saturday, fight fans will need to get up early when IBF Middleweight Champion Gennadiy “GGG” Golovkin (41-1) takes on WBA Champion Ryota Murata, live from Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, JP. Not only is the winner a unified champion, but if Golovkin emerges victorious, he has signed a September fight against Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (57-1-2).
Golovkin, who turns 40 on Friday, will have to do his best as he will be at Murata’s home pitch. Although most fans would have liked to see Golovkin in the ring more often, he only fought once against Kamil Szeremeta (22-2-1) in 2020. We saw a glimpse of the old “GGG” in this fight as he led with that stiff jab and worked the body to build his combinations. Will the thought of a future fight with “Canelo” distract him from Murata? We will certainly find out on Saturday.
Murata is an interesting fighter as he is very popular in Japan, which is why the fight takes place there. Despite being a WBA champion, he has not fought and defended the title since December 23, 2019. That night he fought Steven Butler (29-3-1) and won by knockout in the third round. Murata will have to shake off the ring rust early against the Kazakh champions.
In the co-main, undefeated WBO flyweight champion Junto Nakatani (22-0) will defend his title against Ryota Yamaguchi. Last September, Nakatani racked up an impressive fourth-round TKO win over top contender Angel Acosta (22-2).
