How to watch Gennadiy Golovkin vs Kamil Szeremeta boxing world title fight live in Australia
Kazakhstan legend Gennadiy Golovkin can make history when he meets Poland's Kamil Szeremeta. Here's how to watch in Australia.
Gennadiy Golovkin, 38, boasts an incredible 40-1-1 record, with 35 knockouts. Victory over unbeaten challenger Kamil Szeremeta would be his 21st defence of a middleweight title, eclipsing the record he shares with American superstar Bernard Hopkins. The bout will be his first since October 2019.
"This is not just any fight," said the man affectionately known as "GGG". "It is a fight with great meaning. I always have the greatest respect for all of my opponents. I have really missed boxing and I wanted to fight this year. The goal — fighting for a record 21st successful world title defence."
There is another belt on the line as part of this event in a match-up of undefeated fighters. Golovkin's compatriot Ali Akhmedov meets Carlos Gongora for the vacant IBO super middleweight world title.

Who will win GGG vs Szeremeta?
Golovkin has only lost one fight in his illustrious career. That was against Canelo Alvarez in 2018 and Szeremeta doesn't appear to have the quality to truly trouble "GGG". The 31-year-old Szeremeta is unbeaten (21-0) but this is a big step up and we are picking the Kazakh's knockout power to prevail.
"I want this title for Poland and my family," Szeremeta said. "GGG is a great champion, one of the best in history, but it is time for replacement. Thank you for the great chance, I must take my opportunity to be the first world middleweight champion from Poland."
