GGG vs. unknown jr. middleweight on PPV?!

According to ESPN, the likely opponent for WBC/WBA/IBF middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin is little known WBO #6, WBC #8 junior middleweight Jaime Munguia on Cinco de Mayo at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The telecast will apparently remain on HBO Pay-Per-View. The 21-year-old Munguia has a record of 28-0, 24 KOs, but so far has never fought outside Mexico, nor fought any recognizable names.

An official announcement is expected soon. GGG has to find a new dance partner for the PPV telecast on short notice after Canelo Alvarez due to a banned substance found in his system. No undercard bouts have been announced as of yet.
