Gennady Golovkin v Kamil Szeremeta (Undercard & Main)
Gennadiy Golovkin is looking to make history Friday when he put his IBF middleweight title on the line against Kamil Szeremeta at the Hard Rock Live at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida. The event can be seen directly on DAZN in the United States and Canada.
Golovkin’s victory (40-1-1, 35 KOs) would be his 21st defense on a middleweight title, breaking the record that “GGG” currently shares with Bernard Hopkins.
The blow was discussed since Golovkin defeated Sergiy Derevyanchenko in his last outing in October 2019 who was a “Fight of the Year” candidate, and Szeremeta stopped Oscar Cortes on the sub-card.
Szeremeta (21-0, 5 KOs) is the compelling opponent with three winners in 2019 over Andrew Francillette, Edwin Palacios, and Cortes.
Can Golovkin break the record or will Szeremeta shock and upset the world?
Stay tuned as DAZN News broadcasts live of GGG vs Szeremeta.

Visit 5 Golovkin-Szeremeta
Golovkin is relentless. It doesn’t give Szeremeta much room to breathe and respond. Ironically, Golovkin trainer Jonathon Banks told him he was ready when they could go home. Does Golovkin heed the advice? (10-9 Golovkin, 50-42 Golovkin)
Visit 4 Golovkin-Szeremeta
Golovkin looks elegant and on point. It explodes the injection, showing good footwork and high accuracy. With about a minute left in the round, Golovkin sends Szeremeta back to the canvas with a right hand and then a short left hook. Szeremeta has no answer at this point. You have to think that his corner is starting to think about stopping him. (10-8 Golovkin, 40-33 Golovkin)
Visit 3 Golovkin-Szeremeta
We see a lot of the same thing in the third round but Golovkin looks like someone trying to blow Szeremeta out of there. At least Szeremeta didn’t hit this round. (10-9 Golovkin, 30-25 Golovkin)
Visit 2 Golovkin-Szeremeta
Golovkin comes out going right back into a job but he also uses the uppercut right after. He starts throwing more proper hands that make Szeremta a shy gun come and try to resist. With 40 seconds left, Golovkin lowers Szeremeta again, this time with a right hand. Szeremeta looks to shake his legs but the referee lets the fight continue. We’ll see what Szeremeta can do to come back. (10-8 Golovkin, 20-16 Golovkin)
Hyun Mi Choi took control of Calista Silgado
Choi def. Silgado with a unanimous decision (99-91, 98-92, 97-93) to retain the WBA super featherweight title. Fight a fun activity. Even though women’s boxing is only two-minute rounds, Choi and Silgado threw more than 900 pounds.
The key that came down to Choi was the more active of the two and landed more power shots. Silgado came back in the final three rounds when she decided to let go. Too small, too late.
It’s time for a GGG vs Szeremeta joint event as Hyun Mi Choi (17-0-1, 4 KOs) against Calista Silgado (19-11-3, 14 KOs). Silgado cannot win the WBA Women’s Super Featherweight title because she came in 1.4 fat pounds. If Choi loses, she loses her belt and becomes pale.
John Ryder defeats Michael Guy in a useless fight
Ryder def. Guy through unanimous decision (100-90, 99-91, 96-94). Who in their right mind thought Guy won four rounds? This can make the case for the tenth round but that would be about it.
Coming to an action-packed fight between Carlos Gongora and Ali Akhmedov, Ryder and Guy decided they wanted to relax their fans and fight at a snail’s pace. Ryder was more active of the two while Guy decided he would treat it like a sparring session and not do too much.
Winning is a win and that’s all you can ask of Ryder.
Is it over yet?
Entering the sixth round, John Ryder is well ahead of Michael Guy. Ryder tries to push the action while Guy is happy to be just there. Guy doesn’t get involved at all and still keeps himself up to the ropes.
John Ryder returns
Next up at GGG vs Szeremeta, John Ryder (28-5, 16 KOs) meets Michael Guy (12-5-1, 5 KOs) in a very mediocre action. Ryder is looking back from his controversial loss to Callum Smith last year.
Carlos Gongora shakes Ali Akhmedov with a 12-round strike
Gongora def. Akhmedov through a strike at 1:57 of the 12th round.
Akhmedov was ahead of the three judges ’cards heading into the final round of the fully-fledged relationship. Even though he was up, Akhmedov came into the round blood, pounding, bruising, and fatigue was written all over his face. Gongora felt he could do some damage and sent Akhmedov to the canvas with a left uppercut 54 seconds into the run. Akhmedov counted them but he was on shaky legs. He tried to hold on and survive. They were fighting on the inside when Gongora threw another short left uppercut to put Akhmedov away and remove the big upset and the last one of his first career loss.
According to CompuBox stats, Gongora and Akhmedov threw 1,523 pounds together.
