GGG vs Murray Official Painting Unveiled

MONTE-CARLO, MONACO: Feb 17, 2015 | Multi-award winning artist Richard T. Slone has unveiled his latest painting, for the Gennady "GGG" Golovkin vs. Martin Murray world middleweight fight which takes place in Monte-Carlo, Monaco on Saturday Feb 21st.

Slone was commissioned by Team Golovkin in association with promoter Golden Gloves to create the official art ahead of this Saturday's championship fight at Salle des Étoiles. The original acrylic painting measures 30x40" on canvas and has been acquired by Team Golovkin. Slone also released a very special limited edition of only 30 canvas giclees, which have sold out - many acquired by the champion and his team. The Casino de Monte-Carlo, will issue a small amount of onsite posters on fight night.

"I wanted to capture the essence of guts and glamour in the fight, which is set before the backdrop of the fantastic and historic Casino de Monte-Carlo - playground of the rich and famous. The fight will be great and royalty will show up watch it, its a spectaclar event and I'm honored to create this art. There is patriotic importance to each fighter too, so I added their flags, they're fighting for the world title and pride" said Slone who is no stranger to Golovkin, having created official art for many of his past fights including those against Proksa, Stevens, Rosado and Rubio.

Slone’s art has become synonymous with boxing’s superfights, having created scores of official artworks for the sports biggests names in the past decades, including Floyd Mayweather, Lennox Lewis, Oscar de la Hoya, Manny Pacquiao, Ricky Hatton and many more. This year  Slone celebrated his 18th year as the Official artist of the International Boxing Hall of Fame.
