Auto Update: Off

Welcome to SportsNation! On Thursday, we're going inside the boxing ring when Gennady Golovkin and Matthew Macklin stop by to chat about their main event WBA middleweight title fight this weekend.

Golovkin (26-0, 23 KO) squares off with Macklin (29-4, 20 KO) for Golovkin's belt. MGM Grand at Foxwoods Resort in Mashantucket, Conn. hosts the bout, which airs at 9:45 p.m. ET/PT on HBO Boxing After Dark.

Macklin (3 p.m. ET), @mattmacklin, is expecting fireworks against Golovkin. He last fought in Sept. 2012, earning a first round KO of Joachim Alcine.

Golovkin (3:30 p.m. ET), @gggboxing, enters the ring for the third time already in 2013. Saturday's fight will be his eighth title defense since winning his title in 2010, with all previous eight fights ending in a Golovkin KO.

Send your questions now and join the chat Thursday at 3 p.m. ET!
