“I am very pleased that I have been in the middleweight division for a long time and have been a champion. This makes me very happy, because I have always been a fan of middleweight. I followed the legendary champions.
I have a number of achievements that I am really proud of. I'm in the Guinness Book of World Records for having the highest knockout percentage in the middleweight division. I made a record number of title defenses, I am the most avoided boxer in the middleweight division. I'm proud of it, it makes me happy.
My middleweight record is excellent. I'm proud of them. I hope that my children will be proud of them too," Golovkin said in an interview with Yahoo! sports.
