In a move that seemingly came out of nowhere, Gennady Golovkin (GGG) will face welterweight champion Kell Brook. The bout will take place at 160 pounds which means Brook will be moving up two divisions to face his toughest task to date. The bout will take placeSeptember 10 at London’s O2 Arena, live on Sky Sports Box Office in the UK and on HBO here in the USA. This match-up leaves Chris Eubank Jr out of fight after calling out GGG in the past few weeks and Jessie Vargas out of fight after lengthy contract talks with Brook
