Who has Golovkin fought? In 24 fights, his first 7 bouts were against opponents with a combined record of 50-74. In the next 17 fights the only formidable opponents were a Kassim Ouma who lost 6 of his 8 most recent bouts. Then he fights a pint sized Proksa who fought 59 days prior avenging his loss to Kerry Hope! So who is the REAL HYPE job here?

I sat 2nd row at the GGG-Proksa fight. They both looked tiny for the MW division where 6′ – 160lb monsters have become the norm. The fight was entertaining but so was Kid Chocolate’s sparring session with GGG at Wild Card. Quillin isn’t the future of the MW division, he is the MW division.

Golovkin has to build HIS name up before Quillin will fight him? Ha-HAAAAAAA!! I think HBO thinks otherwise. Not to mention that (A) Kid Chocolate is not a headliner/major draw, (B) Quillin is ranked 5-6 spots lower than Triple G in every boxing publication in the world, and (C) Golovkin was the 1st fighter I’ve seen in a long time that when his fight ended, I thought to myself, “I can’t wait to see this guy fight again.” I have yet to feel that way after a Quillin fight. TKO’s over Jesse Brinkley & Jason LeHoullier (who?), a premature stoppage over Craig McEwan, and a UD over a 40 1/2 year old (3 yrs inactive) Winky Wright do not exactly make me pine for the next Kid Chocolate fight.

I don’t care how in shape or focused Winky was in his fight versus Quillin. He was 40 years old when he fought Quillin and had not been in the ring since a near-shutout loss to Paul Williams in 2009. Quillin beat an older, faded Wright. Fact.

I dont think so bro, GGG is one of the all time best Amateurs, basically he is a master boxer as well as a KO artist and contrary to your belief not “everyone” thinks Martinez would beat him, myself included.

Golovkin called him out and yes saying ” build up your name a little bit “…He should have said “MEET ME SOMEWHERE! “

I really don`t understand Quillin making the statement and claiming that he hasn`t taken no punishment at all in his 7 year career .Maybe he was smoking some marijuana with Chavez Jr., before he gave this interview with Ciani because he clearly took massive punishment against the hard-hitting Columbian ,Dionisio Miranda, back in 2008. Quillin took massive punishment in the 7th round and was badly hurt and looked like he was on the verge of being knocked out.In that fight his defense was so bad and mediocre that even the wide swinging Miranda had no trouble hitting him.

dgar, Winky fought a very good bout in his fight with Quillin. Wright was in shape, he trained hard for the fight, he fought with heart and courage but ended up losing. And he put on a pretty good show too. He also hurt Quillin at least once. Winky didn’t look old that night, just beaten. Besides, Winky is known for his defense–almost impossible for most opponents to break through. But as for lessening Quillin’s win by criticizing “old” Winky Wright. Well, you’re wrong. It was a very good win for Quillin. Especially considering how well Winky fought.

Quillinn also turns his back on his opponents. Tommy Hearns got knocked out doing that. Quillin can too.

Golovkin is a cracking fighter but everyone knows Martinez is the true MW champ, would love to see Gennady vs Sergio though but feel it may be a bit soon for the Khazak boxer who is unfortunate in that his serious heavy hands mean he lacks rounds to deal with a phenom like Martinez, yet!

Peter ‘Kid Chocolate’ Quillin (27-0, 20 KOs) mabey has something going on here. He seems to be a promising top contender and his 3 latest fight have been good ones and boxing out and sending Ronlad “Winky” Wright to a retirement was a show that put this man on the map and of what I have seen he seems to be fired up for this fight. He is world ranked as Nr.1# by WBO and 4# by WBA and Fightnews haves him at 15# so its good. The classic Middleweight class needs a dominant and unified world champion and sence boxing legend Bernard Hopkins highly imporessive reign from 1994-2005 the division have lacked a superstar who could have taken over the crown. Jermain Taylor, Kelly Pavlik and Arthur Abraham all three fine world middleweight champions who did there best but the did not manage to keep up the work and it did not help with Felix Sturm acting cowardly and refused to fight them been afraid to lose his precius WBA belt to a better champion. The Middleweight division is now ruled by WBC champ Sergio Gabriel Martinez, WBA champ Gennady Golovkin, IBF champ Daniel Geale and WBO champ Hassan N’Dam N’Jikam, so the landscape is open and in need of a unified world champion and mabey Quillin is up for the challange!
