(AP) Gennady Golovkin is already a nightmare matchup for the world's best middleweights.

This time out, he's well-rested and maybe feeling a bit disrespected.

The champion intends to let it all out on Curtis Stevens when they meet at the Theater at Madison Square Garden on Nov. 2 for Golovkin's two title belts.

Golovkin (27-0, 24 KOs) has vicious knockout power, but he'll be ready to throw plenty of punches if necessary.

He took seven weeks off after his third-round stoppage of Matthew Macklin in Connecticut in June.

The vacation was his longest in the past two years, ever since the 31-year-old Olympic silver medalist began his move up the world rankings with new promotional backing and a nonstop schedule of fights.
