- Gennady Golovkin makes his return to the ring against Steve Rolls on June 8
- The Madison Square Garden competition represents the Kazakh debut on DAZN
- He has not been in action since he lost to Canelo Alvarez in September
- Canelo is also signed with DAZN and makes a third fight between them more likely
Gennady Golovkin must make his return to the ring against Steve Rolls at Madison Square Garden on June 8.
The former middleweight king has not been in action since his first loss of his career to Canelo Alvarez in September.
He lost by majority decision on that occasion and decided to take a long break before announcing his next game in New York against Toronto boxer roles.

The Kazakhs have not fought since they lost losers to rival Canelo Alvarez in September
The fight against Rolls is seen as a way that can keep Golovkin busy while the conversation becomes a trilogy fight with his colleague DAZN hunter Canelo.
Canelo triggered the first spot on Golovkin's incredible career and the Kazakh is keen to avenge the loss.
The 35-year-old opponent of Golovkin – who has not tasted defeat after 19 games – is invalid by many, but he is convinced that he can add more misery.

& # 39; I want to sincerely thank DAZN and GGG for giving me the opportunity to challenge one of the best fighters in the world & # 39 ;, Rolls said after the announcement.
& # 39; But let me be clear: I won national championships and represented my country, and Golovkin is just a man.
& # 39; I am coming to win this fight and my name is one of the best middleweights in the world. & # 39;
Seduced by a lucrative DAZN streaming service, the fight is scheduled a week after Anthony Joshua & # 39; s American debut against Jarrell & # 39; Big Baby & # 39; Miller – although that fight has been compromised.
& # 39; I am very excited to return to the ring and bring the Big Drama Show back to Madison Square Garden. The Garden fans are fantastic, & Golovkin said.
& # 39; I love boxing and I promise to bring the best of me to everyone who keeps me in a fight with Steve Rolls. I am very happy that GGG Promotions has a new home at DAZN. & # 39;
Golovkin has a relentless knockout record in his career and is expected to overcome Rolls
