Photo of the Week #214
While I normally reserve Photo of the Week status for a single image, I couldn’t resist double-dipping in recognition of boxing champ Gennady Golovkin’s double-feature this week. On Wednesday night, he made his Broadway debut with a cameo appearance in Rocky at the Winter Garden Theatre. When I say debut, I mean he had never even seen a Broadway show before, adding his name to what I’m sure would be a very short list! On Saturday night, Golovkin was back in his comfort zone with a seemingly effortless third round technical knockout of Daniel Geale at Madison Square Garden, retaining his middleweight title and extending his knockout streak to 17. What can’t this guy do?
