Los Angeles, CA (April 17, 2016) Boxing Superstar and Unified World Middleweight Champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin kicked off the Fight Week Media Events for UNDEFEATED on Sunday night with his third trip to the mound for the Los Angeles Dodgers as he threw out the ceremonial first pitch just prior to their nationally televised contest against arch-rivals, the San Francisco Giants. Among those coming over to greet Golovkin and send their best wishes was Five Time All-Star first baseman Adrian Gonzalez and former Dodgers manager and Hall-of-Famer Tommy Lasorda.
Prior to throwing the first pitch Golovkin spent time talking to the large media contingent covering the event as well as a huge crowd of “GGG” fans seeking photos and autographs from the Los Angeles native.
