Gennady Golovkin puts his unbeaten record and World Boxing Association middleweight world title on the line Saturday against resilient Mexican Marco Antonio Rubio – with an eye toward even bigger things ahead.Golovkin's brutal three-round demolition of former champion Daniel Geale of Australia at Madison Square Garden in July was his 17th successive knockout – a streak stretching back to 2008 .Extra seats and a standing-room section were added – a sign not only of Rubio's ability to draw a large following of Mexican-American fans but also of Golovkin's growing popularity.Rubio, 34, brings a 59-6-1 record to the bout. Since a 2012 loss to Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. he's 6-0, although none of those fights were against top-flight middleweights.
