The head of state sent the telegramme to Golovkin in connection with his defence of the world champion boxing title, according to WBA and IBO.

Nazarbayev noted that Golovkin’s victory has become a good present for multiple fans of boxing and for all Kazakh fans.

“In the fair fight with the worthy opponent you demonstrated your combative nature, strong spirit and perfect physical training. You once again proved your leadership and raised the image of Kazakhstan at the international level. We are proud of your victory,” the telegramme stated.

Nazarbayev wished the athlete health, wealth and further big victories in the professional ring.

“I am very grateful to the head of our state Nursultan Nazarbayev for his support and understanding. This is a big honour for me. I am very glad that they watched my fight. This is the victory of Kazakhstan as a whole. …I wish health and wealth to all people of Kazakhstan,” Golovkin said in response, as reported by the country’s consulate general in New York.
