Hold onto your butts!

Two of the most devastating punchers in all of boxing will duke it out this TONIGHT (Sat., Oct. 17, 2015) when Gennady Golovkin looks to extend his knockout streak to an absurd 21 at the expense of Canadian bomber David Lemieux in the hallowed halls of Madison Square Garden in New York, New York. will deliver LIVE coverage of "Glolovkin vs. Lemieux" below, starting with the HBO pay-per-view (PPV) broadcast that begins at 9 p.m. ET.

It has been seven years and nearly four months since someone last went the distance with Golovkin (33-0, 30 KO). The Kazakh bruiser hit the HBO airwaves back in 2012 with a five-round drubbing of Grzegorz Proksa and hasn't looked back, becoming one of the sport's biggest stars while leaving absolute destruction in his wake.

Lemieux (34-2, 31 KO) left his native Canada for the first time in Dec. 2014, blowing out former Golovkin victim Gabe Rosado in 10 rounds and, in the process, doing what "GGG" couldn't: Knocking down Rosado. He scored a decision over Hassan N'Dam N'Jikam in June to earn the IBF Middleweight title, knocking down N'Dam four times in the process.

Golovkin and Lemieux will compete in a Middleweight world title unification match.

The co-main event features arguably the best fighter in the entire sport, three-division champion Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez (43-0, 37 KO), against hard-hitting veteran Brian "Hawaiian Punch" Viloria (36-4, 22 KO) at Flyweight. Gonzalez made his HBO debut in May with a two-round thrashing of the very capable Edgar Sosa and tops many critics' pound-for-pound lists. Viloria, meanwhile, has won 10 of his last 11 matches, including a stoppage of the notoriously-durable Giovani Segura.

Rounding out the PPV are a Heavyweight clash between Luis Ortiz (22-0, 19 KO) and Matias Ariel Vidondo (20-1-1, 18 KO) and a Middleweight bout between Tureano Johnson (18-1, 13 KO) and Eamonn O'Kane (14-1-1, 5 KO) to determine the main event winner's next IBF mandatory.
