olovkin vs Murata – LIVE!

Gennady Golovkin will hope to tee up a trilogy showdown with Canelo Alvarez as he battles Japan’s Ryota Murata in Saitama today.

The two great rivals are on a collision course for a third lucrative clash later in 2022, but only if they both come through their respective next tests unscathed.

While Canelo fights WBA light-heavyweight champion Dmitry Bivol in Las Vegas next month, Golovkin will hope to get past Murata in a world middleweight unification showdown.

One of the greatest campaigners at 160lbs in boxing history, ‘GGG’ has only fought once since regaining the IBF and IBO belts against Sergiy Derevyanchenko in 2019, stopping Kamil Szeremeta 16 months ago.

And Golovkin will be out to prove here that he remains among the most formidable fighters on the planet despite that recent inactivity and the fact that he turned 40 on Friday.

But he could face a tough examination against Murata, the 2012 Olympic gold medalist who is the current WBA ‘super’ champion but has not stepped into the ring since beating Steven Butler in December 2019.

On Saturday’s undercard, Junto Nakatani defends his WBO flyweight title against Ryota Yamauchi and former super-featherweight champion Masayuki Ito faces Shuichiro Yoshino.

By the way, I think there has been some confusion with the GMT/BST change in some of the listings for today’s event.

I would expect the main event ring walks at around 1pm BST, but it could even be much earlier than that with only two fights on the main undercard.

The only way to know for sure is to stay tuned right here!

Yoshino vs Ito

A furious and highly watchable first round of action, with Ito jabbing well but some nice right hands and flurries from Yoshino in the purple trunks.

The aggressive Yoshino is content to come firing back with a vengeance every time he gets caught, which should make for an action-packed contest.

Undercard results

Some early undercard results to bring you from Saitama.

Taiga Kato outpointed Hiroka Amaki in the opening fight of the night, while Kazuki Anaguchi then stopped Ryuji Yamamoto.

The main three-fight card is about to get underway, with Shuichiro Yoshino defending his WBO Asia Pacific and OPBF lightweight titles against former WBO super-featherweight world champion Masayuki Ito.

This could be a cracker!

Golovkin vs Murata prediction

How Golovkin, at the age of 40, can deal with 16 months out of ring looks set to be the defining factor in how this fight plays out.

Murata believes his opponent his past his best – his hopes on Saturday surely rely on that being true.

He said: “Whether GGG is unbeaten or not does not matter. I think he is past his prime.

“How I perform my strong points in the ring will be important.”

Golovkin has dealt with with spells out of the ring before and is too experienced to let talk of a trilogy fight with Canelo distract him from the task on hand.

It promises to be an exciting bout, with both fighters having plenty of knockout victories on their records. Murata has avenged the two defeats in his professional career, but this is a big step up and he could be stopped for the first time in his career.

Golovkin to win by stoppage, round 8.
