GGG-Rolls Undercard Finalized
The card for Gennady Golovkin’s return to Madison Square Garden has been set, one week prior to his June 8th showdown with Steve Rolls.
“Ali Akhmedov and Brian Ceballo have earned their way onto this undercard, but now they have to earn their right to move up and that won’t be easy since they are both in deep. They are in wars,” said Tom Loeffler of GGG Promotions. “The fans should see a lot of fireworks on June 8 from Israil Madrimov, Nikita Ababiy and Charles Conwell, as well. They have a combined record of 15-0 with 13 of their victories coming by way of knockout.”
Akhmedov will battle Marcus McDaniel in the card’s co-main event, as they fight for the vacant WBC international super middleweight title, as Akhmedov and McDaniel look to remain undefeated.
Two other fighters look to give their opponent their first loss as Brooklyn natives Brian Ceballo and Bakhtiyar Eyubov in an eight-round welterweight fight.
Israil Madrimov will make his Madison Square Garden debut against veteran Noberto Gonzalez in a 10-round super-welterweight fight.
Rounding out the DAZN broadcasted card will be former United States Olympian Charles Conwell battle Courtney Pennington, for the vacant USBA junior middleweight title, and the undefeated Nikita Ababiy against an unnamed opponent.
