Gennady Golovkin of Kazakhstan faces Mexico's Marco Antonio Rubio in middleweight title bout at StubHub Center

Gennady Golovkin's West Coast coming-out party takes place Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson.
The fast-rising middleweight from Kazakhstan will take on Marco Antonio Rubio of Mexico, in a fight that had title implications in the WBC, WBA and IBO before Rubio weighed in at 161.8 pounds, above the 160-pound middleweight limit.

Now, his interim WBC title has been declared vacant, and if Rubio wins, Golovkin's title also will be vacant.

Those 1.8 pounds also cost Rubio a purse reduction from $450,000 to $350,000. Golovkin, who weighed in at 159, will earn a base purse of $900,000.
