, Gennady Golovkin vs Ryota Murata: UK start time TODAY, live stream, TV channel, undercard for Tokyo fight night

GENNADY GOLOVKIN is back and set to face Ryota Murata in a big middleweight unification match-up.

The Kazakh fighter hasn’t been in the ring since a 7th-round TKO over Kamil Szeremeta in December 2020.

Golovkin is one of boxing’s longest-reigning champions

And it’s been an even longer layoff for Murata, who last fought a year before that against Steven Butler.

Golovkin holds the IBF strap at 160lbs while Murata has the WBA title around his waist, but only one man can leave Japan with both belts.

When is Golovkin vs Murata?

Golovkin’s big unification clash with Japanese fighter Murata will take place on Saturday, April 9.

The fight will be held at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.
