World-renowned Kazakhstani boxer Gennady Golovkin has become a new president of the National Olympic Committee of the Republic of Kazakhstan ahead of the 2024 Paris Olympics, Kazinform News Agency reports.

Today, February 26, participants of the session of the General Assembly of the National Olympic Committee of the Republic of Kazakhstan voted unanimously for Gennady Golovkin to helm the organization, the post previously held by businessman Timur Kulibayev. Additionally, the session elected new members of the Executive Committee and other NOC offices.

Gennady Golovkin is widely regarded as one of the most decorated boxers of our time. Throughout his career he claimed all amateur and professional boxing titles one could think of. Gennady Golovkin, or Triple G, has gained popularity for his impeccable tactics, spectacular fights, unique winning streak and a myriad of achievements.

Hailing from Karaganda, as a child Gennady Golovkin was fond of football and wasn’t into boxing at all. Although, as a teenager he watched Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield’s fights together with his father and brothers.

He played football for a junior football team in his city. But, somehow his elder brothers persuaded him to try boxing and the rest is history.
