HBO Boxing After Dark Golovkin vs. Macklin airs this Saturday, June 29 live on HBO with a fight time of 9:45 p.m. ET.

Much like last week's Broner vs. Malignaggi fight, this one is a chance for a very highly touted rising fighter to show just what's he made of. GGG Gennady Golovkin has definitely turned heads in his 7 year pro career, particularly since coming to HBO last year. The undefeated KO artist developed a scary reputation while fighting in Europe, and he's continued to impress in the US. A busy fighter, Golovkin is already 2-0 in 2013 and swears he will fight anyone, including the likes of pound for pound greats Sergio Martinez and Andre Ward. With his huge KO power and underrated technical skills, Golovkin is indeed a fearsome opponent. But without any big names on his resume (Gabriel Rosado is probably his best win) is it hype, or is Golovkin for real?

That's what Macklin will aim to find out on Saturday. A veteran of the game, Macklin has been in there with some great fighters, and he's held his own. He's the definite underdog to the tough Golovkin, but he provides a solid test for the growing career of GGG. If this one ends in another spectacular Golovkin KO, we'll no that Golovkin is indeed a serious threat and that the hype is no joke.

Golovkin vs. Macklin is the main event of a triple-header that night. The opening fight sees the up and coming Willie Nelson face Luciano Cuello. After that, two undefeated fighters square off as Thomas Oosthuizen takes on Brandon Gonzales.
