ONE OF BOXING'S most exciting pound-for-pound fighters Gennady 'GGG' Golovkin will defend his middleweight titles LIVE and EXCLUSIVE on BoxNation when he takes on Willie Monroe Jr on May 16.

The Kazakh superstar has struck fear throughout the middleweight division by dismantling all 32 of his opponents - 29 of those by way of brutal stoppage. The explosive puncher is out for more of the same when he takes on his skilled American challenger.

The 12-round bout taking place at The Forum in Inglewood, California will see Golovkin's WBA Super belt and IBO title up for grabs as he makes his first return to the ring following his win over Britain's brave Martin Murray in February.

The addition of the May 16 clash adds yet another string in the bow of a mighty BoxNation schedule over the coming weeks.

Boxing fans can enjoy a host of back-to-back world class fights for just £12 a month, starting on April 11 when Andy Lee makes his first defence of the WBO Middleweight crown against Peter Quillin, with light-welterweight aces Danny Garcia and Lamont Peterson on the card.

That's followed a week later on April 18 with a truly monster night of LIVE action for BoxNation subscribers when lightweight Derry Mathews takes his first stab at a world title against the slick WBA champion Richar Abril at Liverpool's Echo Arena.

BoxNation will then go Stateside with two fantastic fight cards starting with a bout that promises to be an all out war - Argentine banger Lucas Matthysse taking on the formidable Ruslan Provodnikov at Turning Stone Resort and Casino in New York.

Hot on the heels of that, on the same night, rising pound-for-pound star Terence Crawford is back in action in Arlington, Texas as he looks to become a two-weight world champion against Puerto Rican sensation Thomas Dulorme.

That's not all, with BoxNation bringing British fans even more mouth-watering live fights with heavyweight legend Wladimir Klitschko back on US soil when he defends his world titles against the undefeated and highly-rated Bryant Jennings on April 25 in New York.

It gets even better for BoxNation subscribers when Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez and knockout-artist James Kirkland share the ring in front of 40,000 fans at the Minute Maid Park in Houston Texas on May 12 in a 'Fight of the Year' contender.

That is followed in quick succession by fan-favourite Golovkin who will be out to provide more fireworks as he continues lighting up the 160 pound division.

"I'm very excited to fight again in Los Angeles, where I now live" said Golovkin.

"Monroe is a skilled southpaw and I look forward to the test he will provide. I promise my fans another 'Big Drama Show."

Top-rated challenger Monroe Jr is adamant that the 32-year-old Golovkin will not have it all his own way as he looks to spring a surprise.

"It's going to be one of those fights - speed v power, slickness v aggressiveness and the bull v the matador. I am ready. I've been in training already for three weeks before we even got this fight. We will be more than ready on May 16," said Monroe Jr.

Jim McMunn, Managing Director of BoxNation, said, "Gennady Golovkin is among the most exciting and thrilling fighters around, so we are delighted to bring BoxNation subscribers his next fight against a tricky opponent in Willie Monroe Jr.

"This fight joins a fantastic lineup on BoxNation over the coming weeks, with a number of world class fights, that at only £12 a month represent truly remarkable value for money."
