Gennady Golovkin wife gives birth ahead of the biggest fight of her husband’s career when he takes on Canelo Alvarez this weekend in Las Vegas.

Good news has come for Gennady Golovkin this past weekend in the form of an unusual surprise as he focuses on Canelo Alvarez this Saturday.

Gennady Golovkin wife Alina Golovkin gave birth to the couple’s second child Lance Pugmire of the LA Times has reported.

It is their first daughter together it is understood.

Boxing, one of the most unforgiving sports of them all – often hardens its best warriors who have little to no emotion on fight week as they prepare to make weight and narrow their lenses for the brutal task that lays in front of them.

The hurt business is something that Golovkin has excelled at better than any other middleweight in recent times but even a champion as ferocious and hard hitting as ‘GGG’ must have experienced some emotions this past weekend following the good news.

He wouldn’t be human, otherwise. Will it be a help or hindrance ahead of Saturday night?

Time will tell, although one would have thought this could give Golovkin added motivation to an already fully charged training camp ahead of the defining fight of his career.

A fight that he, Canelo Alvarez and world boxing fans have wanted for so long.
