Gennady Golovkin and David Lemieux have been working out in front of the media ahead of their bout this weekend.

Both knockout specialists took to the ring in front of the cameras in preparations for the New York fight – with the winner walking away with the IBF and WBA belts.

Unbeaten Golovkin is the clear favourite in the betting markets and he showed no signs of nerves as he was put through his paces at Madison Square Gardens.

It's more than seven years since Kazakhstan-born boxer Golovkin was taken the distance.

But Lemieux, who secured four knock-downs on his way to this fight, is confident he can stun the crowds watching on.

'I'm ready. It's now or never. He's at his best, I'm getting to my best. We took a big step, and we're ready for it,' he said.

'Everybody understands the gravity of this fight. I think people are going to be surprised with what I bring to the table.

'I'm a big underdog, which is perfect by me. It's not a problem. I know who I am. I have a lot of confidence in myself.

'It's not about power. It's about character, toughness and determination. We're both hard punchers; everyone knows that. Let's see beyond that.'
