Exactly, they can’t. This two piece guy is lost. He’s comparing Cotto to Golovkin. What in blue hell do these two have remotely in common?

Wow, some of you guys really have no idea what an avoided fighter is. These ridiculous calls that GGG has to step it up need to be directed to the guys who are running from him. How is Golovkin supposed to have the big names on his résumé, if people like Martinez, Murray, and Quillin are all avoiding him? Maybe one of you geniuses would like to explain that.

I most definately don’t hate GGG, just his idiotic fans who wanna give him accolades he hasn’t earned. I see his talent I’m aware of his amateur record but as a pro he still has a long way to earn my respect. Danny Garcia has a much better resume than him.

Thrash – @31 Floyd was already future HOFmer with wins over World Class & elite fighters. Ward is a General compared to GGG compare resume and stop making a fool of yourslf. If his so great compare him to Cotto and see the difference you blithering like an idiot orbravingnlike a fool don’t make him any good if his resume is average.

You don’t like him because he’s a threat to your fakies. The ones that can kiss their belt and A$$es goodbye if they fight Golovkin.

Two piece, your IQ is near slobbering in comparison to that of myself. You use idiocy and I use sound logic. Golovkin has no losses. Macklin and rosado are not bums. Golovkin beat Macklin faster than anyone. The Macklin that was basically beating Sergio Martinez. Golovkin ALWAYS says I’m ready, I’ll fight anyone. Curtis Stevens (who I’ll bet you thought was going to beat Golovkin) got pisspunched. Oh, but Stevens is a bum now right? You see where I’m at here? More importantly, are you starting to see where you’re at?

Two piece, you’re a turd. Tell me who called him out? If he fights bums then kid chocolate a bum’s a$$. Because Golovkin nearly beat Rosado to death. Chocolate was getting smacked around by Rosado. Hey, I bet you are a Choco, FMJ and Ward type fan, right? All those guys would beat GGG right? Smackoff.

I can understand that fans are getting tired of GGG fighting B-class fighters. But in his defense, I really believe he is being avoided. Sturm, Geale and Barker are going to fight for the IBF strap, so they have an excuse not to face him. Hell, Sturm has been ducking GGG since his Universum days. Murray might have the balls to fight him, but he will demand crazy money. Chavez Jr. is out of the question, since he can’t even seem to make super-middleweight. Quillin is with Showtime, so he’s out. Martinez won’t fight GGG until september ’14 (although I believe he’s going to continue his career at 154). So who else is there for GGG to fight? You could argue the case that he should move up to 168, but I agree with his promotor that he has to clean out the middleweight division first, so he will become a lot more marketable among a broader public. Basically, for 2014, the biggest fight for GGG that has a realistic chance of coming to fruition is Murray.

So Wilder is a world champion with several title defenses under his belt? … Challengers who Martinez struggled with, GGG is flattening without effort … Saying Golovkin is another Wilder is like comparing Mayweather with Yory Boy Campas—because Campas won 56 fights in a row.

Martinez got his the HARD way he moved up from 147, got a title at 154, got a KO stolen from him against Cintron and had to defend against the best available ie Barker, Murray and Chavez Jr (Big MW’s) whereas GGG’s best wins a Martinez scrap followed by guys coming up from 154 or a Stevens type.. Martinez fought a tough schedule between Murray and Chavez Jr and his old body payed the price, but until he is taken inn the ring no ones handing Golovkin the keys to the Kingdom..

I agree 100% that 3G needs to step it up, being honest, anyone would have to agree with that assessment, plus I wsnt to see what he s got and see more entertaining fights from triple G.

Furthermore, I just listen to a interview from 3G’s trainner and he claims they cant get any better fights as to date, is it true ? I dont know either way.

3G’s resume is way better than wilder’s, although 3G s resume isnt the greatest in itself.

Im disappointed about 3g s next fight to be honest but if he s just staying busy until he gets martinez or whomever then I guess I cant blame him, however, if his next opponent is garbage ill be the first to slam 3G and his people.

The power’s behind the scene s are the ones to blame mostly.

2013 has been a great year of boxing in my opinion so im cool with it for now.

On wilder dont even get me started, he has potential but thats where it ends at this point.

Bulwayo, GGG would not be getting raked over the coals if his nuthugging fans were not trying to elevate him beyond his station in the sport… Calling Mayweather, Martinez and Ward cowards and fodder for this untested fighter opened him up to the FBI inquiry and we find him LACKING in depth as it pertains to his resume and willingness to move outside of his comfort zone to make a name if need be… How can this mans challenge of 5 weight, 4 Lineal Championship Mayweather be taken seriously when he is UNWILLING to chase bigger game himself… Do you think we buy the notion that he is NOT really a MW??? What kind of fools do you take REAL boxing observers for? I say the same for Martinez and he ACTUALLY used to fight at 147, the mans grown into a MW and has the stoppages on his record to show he was handling his business in that division….AGAIN GGG might prove to be something of note one day, but as of now tell me how he differs from Deontay Wilder? a well matched guy looking good knocking out fighters with no credentials…

Most of the boxing pundits rate Golovkin, he’s found himself in a similar position Marquez was in, he was avoided like the plague for a long time before he got a crack at a title. Golovkin has two belts, the other holders Martinez, Quillin and Murray should be made to fight him. Golovkin obviously likes to keep busy ( lucky for real boxing fans ) each time he fights the list of challengers diminishes, wonder why.
Adama has never been down and has a punch, I never saw a fighter from Ghana that wasn’t as tough as nails, might go a little longer than usual.
Sredmond, Two Piece et al, if you can’t see any good in Golovkin I would suggest that it is you that has the low boxing IQ. As for being slow, I recall Stephens saying that, GGG throws a hundred punches a round with great accuracy, he’s the real deal, get over it.

The rest of you “Goons” have been fighting a LOSING battle, upstarts like Golovkin 2

It’s beautiful watching such stupid people fall ass over tit all the time and then erupt into a rage and try to blame everyone else for their own stupidity and shortcomings. The best part about it is how completely oblivious they are to it. This is why they are forever doomed to repeat the same mistakes over and over again.

SREDMOND

This “Everyone’s Ducking Me” business is not gonna wash, if GGG is really all that he’s gonna do what it takes to land some fights worth seeing and if that means MOVING up then so be it.. Canelo and Broner both moved up why is Golovkin exempt from such moves in pursuit of glory and bigger fights…? He can stay at 160 beating these NO Name Fighters but the chorus is growing in regards to him being overhyped and pushed by HBO… Another KO of this caliber of opponent means what? “he’s a beast” “a killer” sure if there is a C level fighter across the ring staring back…The man does not need more of these contests, and he’s not getting fights at 154 so his options are solidify a solid bout at 160, move up, or keep saying “no one will fight me and let your career stall and die as an Urban Legend” Lucas Matthysee did FAR more to earn his Boogeyman reputation, even as he booked debatable losses to Judah and especially Alexander who I thought he beat…

Ward cleaned house, and if Chavez is the ONLY PPV worthy opponent around why wouldn’t he wanna get paid at this point? At least Chavez is physically capable of hitting the limit and WELL beyond as we know… Ward unlike GGG has earned the right to seek a big payday, he took on a slew of highly touted boxers and blew them out… Golovkin wants a Mayweather bout even as his level of competition PLUMMETS… People said “Floyd would not face Canelo” and that the kid was gonna get to him, some posters I won’t mention billed Alvarez as just as quick as FMJ (Bears, Tark) and when he was taken to school, guys AGAIN got unruly and started shopping for MW’s in hopes that the Mayweather curse could be lifted.. Again attacking proven commodities like Ward and Mayweather with newbies like GGG is weak, especially as Golovkin cake walks it around boxing like he has earned something fighting these guys put in there to make him look good…

Thrash, that’s a lie GGG was in a video discussing “How Mayweather was his dream fight”
And his trainer Abel Sanchez was talking about getting down to 154 to fight FMJ after GGG beat Stevens…. AGAIN Golovkin and his fans are the ones who are ramping up scrutiny by calling everyone a pink from at least 168 to 154, yet I see a trend beginning where the mention of him being “A Showstopper” at 168 is waning, guys are discussing “him being too small for the weight” this would be fine ABSENT prior boasts by Team Golovkin and his LOW BOXING IQ fans who think distorting reality on a message board is gonna make these contradictions less apparent or these opponents more acceptable… I cannot think of a MW Today, who would be given much respect for seeking out a guy who began at 130 and basically topped out physically at 147… Golovkin has size and strength on Mayweather, beyond that he would fare NO better than Victor Ortiz from a technical standpoint and cannot box as well as Canelo… The HOPE is that his size and strength would allow him to land a BIG MW punch on a small WW…. Guys cannot even make an intelligent case, because if they TRULY thought about merit coming outta 160 they would push a healthy Martinez who had the accolades and did more to earn a shot…

Ward has out right refused to fight Stevenson, will only fight in his home town, with his referee, judges, boxing commission, etc. The Eastern Euro haters want Golovkin to go up to 175 and fight Kovalev?!

Chavez Jr. is in for a pounding, regardless of who his name opponent is at 168 or 175. He’s a punching bag with a less sophisticated defense than Rios, and a very limited offense.

boris spasky – I’ve been a golovkin fan since I saw him live in Osaka in 01 when he beat geale. of all the amateurs I’ve ever seen he was the one I most looked fwd to his turning pro. but an amateur with his pedigree should’ve been fighting guys like ishida, Rosado and stevens inside his first 10 fights. riggondeaux, lomanchenko and in the past Kostya Tszyu have done exactly that.
the problem is GGG has become so popular for destroying guys that his promoters can make the same money putting him in a no risk demolition of adama than putting him in a fight with a live opponent.
compare him to kovalev who is on record for wanting to build a legacy. I have no doubt he is prepared to take the short money against the other title holders in order to build that legacy. and that is what GGG should be doing. he should be making PQ & SM offers they can’t refuse if only to clean the division out – for the sake of taking the short money in 2 fights he cements his standing as the dominant 160pounder and sets himself up for a payday against either canelo or Floyd or cotto at 154 (if he can make 154 which having followed him as amo I doubt) or at 168 vs ward or froch in uk.
neither quillan or Martinez would be scared of GGG – just like Garcia wasn’t scared of Matthysse – you don’t get to the level of these guys without enormous egos – but no one in the modern game doesn’t match make on a risk vs reward basis – GGG just has to make the reward worth the risk.

demigawd

I have no problem with this considering the alternative is not fighting at all. I only take issue with the choice of opponent when a champion fights once or twice a year. But when you fight five times a year like GGG does, he can fight as many bums as he wants as long as at least one or two of his opponents are top level guys. Hopefully GGG will land one at some point this year.

I don’t understand people bringing up Lomachenko as being under-appreciated. I never saw anybody criticize his tough choice for a first pro fight (or his even tougher choice for a second fight).
I think he gets credit by those “in the know”; he’s just too new in the pro ranks to get the type of exposure that it seems some people want for him.

I’m sure that if he beats Salido, his profile will sky-rocket.

I’m not going to give GGG a hard time with this one. The top guys in the division don’t want a part of him and are booking other fights. And when you fight 4 times a year, yeah, there are going to be some tomato cans here and there. The choice then becomes: do you fight once or twice a year against higher name fighters, or do you fight 4 times a year with some good and bad names mixed in? If, after a year of this, though, and no big names take the challenge, then he’s got to move up in weight and force the action against credible foes.

Hi guys, Public Enemy here. Like I said I only talk crap about mexicans because they tease me alot here in my neighborhood. If you take a closer look even when the discussion isnt about mexican fighters I still; like a sore loser, come in here and spill my hatred towards them( mexicans ) I never talk mess about any other fighter ( Pacquioa, Mayweather, Kiltschkos…etc.) So Please accept my apology for my ignorance and my people; for we belong in a zoo somewhere in Wisconsin. I know I say I have mexican friends but thats all make believe because the only friends I make are with the neighborhood’s mexican boots in my culoooo!!!

Stupid says…, “Canelo can start with Canelo who he will get outboxed by”

Gennady would light Canelo up and knock him out… You will probably never see the Canelo people go for that fight.. Canelo has to move to 160 soon.. So it will be interesting to look back in 2018, and see if they actually fought.

Im a fan of GGG but I have to agree with some of the sentiments posted below regarding his opposition to date. Everyone talked about how Rigo was avoided then he proved why when he totally outclassed Donaire, now instead of being avoided even more he now has a fight with Agbeko. GGG has to be getting mismanaged.

Golovkin has beaten tough guys, he’s taking a fight where nobody else stepped up. So what? At least he is staying busy. He says constantly he’s ready for whoever wants it. Funny though, how boxers that should and could fight him seem to tread lightly around saying his name. Nobody says Golovkin’s name with the words “I want to fight” in front of it… Doesn’t happen. Not Ward, not anyone… NOBODY!

Every time Floyd moves up a new weight class be it 140, 147, 154, his groupies make the excuse that he’s avoiding that weight’s best fighters because he’s the little guy.

If he’s too little then quit racketeering him as No. 1 at each weight he goes to and let him go back down to where he can compete with the very best

Golovkin’s fans, ie those of us who’ve actually been following his career and watched how things have unfolded, have been saying everyone, ie. most if not all of the 160 lbs division’s belt holders and big players, has been ducking and avoiding him like the plague, which they have. You’d know this too if you’d been paying attention. But by all means continue away with your spin and lies if you want.

I know this is difficult for your retard brains to comprehend but Golovkin is following a strategic plan that has been carefully mapped out for him by his promoters. Seeing as he’s had so much trouble securing meaningful fights against the big names and rival belt holders, they’ve had to tread a different path. That’s the only realistic path they could take to secure those fights for him. He has been frozen out of the division and they’ve been forcing their way back in step by step. You retards should be mad at the fighters who and have been are ducking and swerving him not him.

And that path consists of him raising his profile over in the States by fighting as regularly as possible, against the best available opponents who are willing and available to fight him [and the key words here are WILLING and AVAILABLE], whilst fighting in a hard punching TV friendly aggressive style. The reason they’ve taken that path is because it will ensure they get themselves into the position that all these fighters who’ve been ducking and avoiding him are so against him attaining. It’s persistence hunting. They can’t keep running forever, and if they do his raided profile and new-found popularity will ensure that they’re publicly shamed and humiliated into fighting him or vacating their titles.

Broner is going to destroy Maidana from one side of the ring to another. This fight isn’t even close. Maidana is nothing more than a tough guy that swings slow wide punches. He has no defense, speed, movement, he’ a very limited fighter that is going to make Broner look like a million dollars. I guarantee it. Maidana will likely get stopped from round 9-12 or get dismantled for 12 rounds. Trust me on this. Broner will step up and make people take notice as he climbs up the pound 4 pound list. Bet your house on it. This is a mismatch. Talk to me after the fight. Broner is not going to be beaten for awhile.

CyberHamster, GGG (Abel Sanchez) has been saying along with his fans have been saying everyone’s ducking him from at least 168 to 154, Wards name Abe everyone else’s have been mentioned… YET we see his sometimes maggot fans open to him appearing as a 154 pounder for 24 hours then coming in as a MW to face FMJ who never makes the limit…If you are gonna bill yourself as the BADDEST man alive then you are gonna get called out and put under the microscope, I find his resume lacking and the boasts HOLLOW if he only wants to engage inept fighters in his division or SMALLER boxers… Rosado, Ouma and Ishida are all former 154 pounders, times come for the man to plant a REAL flag at 160 or cool down the rhetoric …

Funny thing is that as GREAT as you think GGG is 2 of the matchups you discussed involved 154 pounders, something he has been maligned for…Personally I think Canelos
A BAD matchup for him, the kid can fight and he’s strong and faster if hand than GGG, I saw that when Stevens let his hands go…

Broner is facing a legitimate puncher at 140 and strong at 147… Maidana has been facing World Class fighters, and he’s a solid test of what type of power Broner can handle at 147 after moving so quickly from 135 to 147… What comparable challenge is Golovkin squaring off with incorporating a 2 division move in weight?? These guys he (GGG) is facing are threat level 0….

I’m a Golovkin fan, but this is a ridiculous fight. Adama simply doesn’t belong in the ring with Golovkin… not even as a warm up.

The fight should’ve been with Murray, but it seemed from what I read a few weeks ago that GGG’s management were being fickle and moronic (i.e. they said something like “We offered Murray a fight before and he said no, so why would we give him an opportunity now?”).
And if not Murray, I’m sure they could’ve gotten a Vera or someone like that.

Golovkin is not a fighter that needs to be protected, but I feel like his management are now just trying ride the hype into a Martinez bout.

Cyber hamster, GGG can go fight Kessler at 168 for all I care REMEMBER it’s His fans
And trainer that are saying “Everyone is ducking him from 168 to 154″ dial down the rhetoric and GGG becomes another new KO artist who might become a fighter of note.. Benchmark him against proven fighters and his resume is gonna get trashed this is how it works…Saying he has “Not faced Elite Competition” is an understatement, he’s hardly faced anyone “Good” and thus the critiques when this 160 pounder is expected to be accommodated by Floyd Mayweather who. FAR more WW than even 154 pounder a 160 pounder

@WHAT!?! : “Geale accepted to fight GGG after he had trashed Mundine and yet all this logic was lost on the WBA who stripped Geale only weeks after beating Sturm. Seems like this logic is lost on a lot of others.”

What he did was logical from a personal financial point of view, but that doesn’t make it right from a global perspective.
I would never say Geale is the type to “fear” any other fighter, but it’s still technically a duck. He chose a higher paying, far easier option in order to avoid an obligated, dangerous fight; he chose the safe path.
In my opinion, regardless of why you’re doing it, if you’re obligated to take on a fight and you choose to ignore it and take an easier fight, then that’s a duck.

Having said that, I sure wish it was Golovkin vs Geale on Feb 1st instead of this fight.

Why does Golovkin deserve a shot more than Danny Garcia who actually established himself as Ring Champion in his division and beat the Boogeyman at 140 who ACTUALLY defeated solid fighters on his way to the ring with Garcia (Matthysee) ??? Garcia was featured on the Mayweather undercard and ACTUALLY faced some boxers you can find on Google unlike Golovkins opponents..GGG is just a 160 pound fighter you pray May rid you of the Mayweather curse, his skills are LAUGHABLE compared to Floyd who beat 2 HOFERS and a Unified Champ at SMW who was 13 years his Jr…. “Just fight him” is NOT good enough, the mans not a boxer in the appropriate weight class and he has no fan base outside the crabs on these threads and their families LMAO..!

Posted December 3, 2013 8:46 pm 


Cyber-H@mster

Thing is SREDMOND, you are trying to turn this into a discussion of accomplishments, and it is actually an assessment of the future.

Noone can seriously say GGG is greater than, well lots of fighters at the moment since it is abundantly true that his level of opposition has not reached elite.

It is also entirely true that there have been lots of heavy hitters in the past who looked great, right up until falling apart when they took that final step up.

I see where you are coming from, and I understand why we don`t give credit for accomplishments people have to to achieve.

BUT.

We can assess the performance of people in the ring with who will face them, and draw some extrapolations and likelihoods.

Rigondeaux was Rigondeaux before he beat Donaire – he has the same skill level before and after the fight. STevenson was Stevenson before and after the Dawson fight – he has the same left hand and power.
You CAN assess boxers for big things before they meet their ultimate test, and you can make comment on the fact they deserve their opportunity.

GGG is not some brainless pressure fighter – he is a very good technical boxer puncher, who fights aggressively looking for KO’s because that is his nature, and that is the only way a foreigner will get attention in the US.

I`m not really interested in Mayweather for GGG, I am interested in one of the other 3 beltholders, or any of the next 3-4 guys just agreeing to fight him.

I don`t feel it reasonable to be putting it on GGG to move up in weight to face a p4p #2 in order to establish himself as a meaningful world champion. Ward didn`t have to do that, the S6 brought everything to his hometown, and Ward STILL feels no compulsion to move up when the evident biggest challenges for him are a division north.

Broner is stepping up to face Maidana – who has lost how many fights? You are giving him props for that and facing Malignaggi – why aren`t you screaming for him to step up and face the p4p#1 Floyd?

The fact of the matter is, that the OBVIOUS fights at MW are GGG vs either Quillin or MArtinez. I`ll give Martinez a comeback gimme, but why in the world is ALL your criticism directed at GGG who wants the unifications rather than Quillin who is running from it?

I’m sick of hearing that Geale ducked GGG. Geale was penalised for Sturms reluctance to fight GGG for 2 years. Geale had just defeated two World Champions in Germany and on points no less. He was offered a chance to fight at home in Australia. To turn the tables on his only blemish and a controversial loss at that against Mundine. He got paid in the 7 figures amount which he would not of got close to vs GGG at that time. GGG was not the well known destroyer we all know now. Geale accepted to fight GGG after he had trashed Mundine and yet all this logic was lost on the WBA who stripped Geale only weeks after beating Sturm. Seems like this logic is lost on a lot of others.

GG Got You Quaking In Your Boots BWAHAHAHA!!

There’s no flaw in my argument. I said I’m happy for him to take one or two fights down at 154 to ”earn his shot”. The demand for the fight is growing fast. You can try and deny it but it’s true. If he were to move down and beat a couple of the top boys down there the fight would become huge.

The flaw is in your argument, you say Floyd would box GG’s ears of but all you do is cry, bawl and complain like a byatch on rag and put needless barricades and obstacles in the way of the fight from happening. If you were confident of Floyd beating him you wouldn’t be making such a big jackass out of yourself and investing so much energy into trying to prevent the fight from ever happening.

Like I said, you’re emotions are way out of your control. They’re running rampant. You have no idea how crazy you sound. You’re coming across like a complete lunatic here. Re-read what you’ written. See if you can see how you appear to others. You’re totally governed by your fears and insecurities. Step back and take a deep breath. Get a grip of yourself man. Take the time to think.

I’m happy for him to take one or two fights at 154 before he knocks Floyd out. I think you’ll find that’s an opinion which is shared by many of his fans. You’ll also find that most of us actually want him to unify at 160 too. That’s what both us and him have always wanted. It’s you butthurt wussies who keep getting all emotional about him moving down to 154 to fight Floyd.

Here’s the rub. If you’re so confident of Floyd beating him, then just say let him come down to 154 and get his boxing lesson of Floyd instead of putting totally needless barricade after barricade in the way. But you’re not confident at all. In fact you’re scared witless, which is why you keep getting so unbelievably emotional and hysterical everytime his name comes up.

Your emotions are out too far out of control for you to conceal and disguise your insecurity and fear. You need to calm down yourselves down stop going full retard and displaying your feminine traits in public all the time. You’d all make lousy poker players.

The Floyd contingent are scared witless of GG moving down to 154 because they know he’d knock Floyd spark unconscious.

At this point GGG needs to step up his game how does this fight build interest in his career. He has to put names on his resume, even if tis pass their prime Ex-champions. If this guy is as good as his fans claim, he has got to step it and prove it.

Geronimo you DON’T know what you are talking about and now you gotta get slammed… WADA (World Anti Doping Agency) administers the WADA code and has “signatories” in various countries that are “WADA accredited” this includes laboratories… USADA
operates under WADA Code… WADA does not independently test athletes, it designates banned substances, serum levels, masking agents as well as chain of custody and a regulated and globally consistent testing procedure…To put it in laymens terms WADA is the Supreme Court and USADA and other designated WADA agencies in various countries are the police….

Geronimo all he had to do was take the random testing with no cut off date and the fight would of been made. Why decline 40 mil? Why say Pac had a cut that wouldn’t be healed quick enough for the fight and then he fought a month earlier than what it would of been with against Floyd and he lost? Why say there isn’t enough time to promote this fight? Why say build a stadium?

Sredmon, You said “blah, blah, blah….” and then “blah, blah,” and totally avoided the fact that Floyd’s own uncle and trainer said that their camp FEARED that Floyd would be KILLED in the ring by Pacman and refused to fight him!!! What’s that but a blatant admission that they knew that Manny was the better fighter by far and away??? You can say they thought he might have been on steroids and that’s why they feared Mayweather’s death in the ring, but that still proves that even they knew Floyd was a dead man walking and were terrified of the prime Pacquiao. I know why you avoided addressing this reality, because it says it all….

Granger, Mayweather ALREADY has the biggest paydays and contract in boxing history its GREAT being Floyd Mayweather that’s why every boxer and trainer within 150 miles of 147 would take it in the rear to fight him for a career payday….Manny is a GREAT fighter but he just made 18 mill in a rehab bout, whereas Canelo who as Floyds B side opponent made almost that much against FMJ who had a base guarantee of 41.5 mill that buys ALOT of Bentleys and Ferraris man!!! Granger are you REALLY trying to blame Mayweather for Pac Man wanting to be a politician??? hahahahahaha!! How is Mayweathers speed supposedly intact and he is THE OLDER fighter by 2 years… Manny was plenty faster than Marquez but fcked up an got himself WAXED…The excuses are PUTRID…. “Floyds waiting for a younger man to get older””” Ridculous!!

I remember listening to Floyd’s uncle claim that he would not let Floyd fight Pacquiao, because he FEARED that his chicken nephew would get killed in the ring. Of course he was claiming that Pacman was on steroids. That fact alone proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Floyd was ducking Manny when he was in his prime, because he was scared in thought he would lose. Floyd left what would have been the biggest payday in boxing history on the table, because he knew deep down he would most likely lose!!! His uncle and trainer feared that he might not even survive the fight. Amazing that some willingly blind boxing fans want to imagine hm as an all time great, when he ducked the best of his own era. Now that Mayweather is distract with Politics and loosing much of his speed, Mayweather might just fight him as a shell of his old self. Look for him to keep ducking GGG though!!!

AGAIN the crys of “No ones fighting me are getting TIRED” if need be MOVE up!! Offer even Kessler a testicle if that’s what it takes, but the haste with which he makes fights with guys that cannot even be called fringe contenders is indicative is a guy stuffing his mattress in haste…Golovkin is LAGGING peers like Canelo and Broner who have both moved up in order to do more business if need be… He can stay 160 if he likes but then lets QUELL these claims of dominance at 175, and 168 because he is starting to look like SHARK BAIT when he faces a Tough Vet who can fight and is not getting KOED in the 3rd round…

“Murray does not want to box Golovkin and for a long time he’s refused to do so.” Hermann said. “Gennady primarily wanted to go against Murray, and we were glad that the WBA ordered this fight. Unfortunately, Murray refuses to go against Golovkin. We changed our plan and we’re negotiating with another opponent.”

Golovkin can only fight the willing. So far that hasn’t included Martinez or Quillin, who he keeps calling out.

When he said “I will fight anybody” Kellerman said, “Who…a name.” His reponse was “Sergio Martinez and Peter Quillin.” Unfortunately they want to salt away more paydays against lesser lights. In today’s Boxing, you can fight who you want and avoid who you want.

If it were up to the fans Golovkin-Martinez would have happened long ago. It’s not like the guys they’re fighting have more prestige.

I was upset at first as I was hoping for someone better. But it’s a fight against a durable guy with a record. And GGG is building his profile in Europe as well as the US. There’s the question of whether he will get a KO. And I’d rather see GGG fighting then not fighting. This fight is not draining HBOs coffers (as opposed to Ward vs Rodriguez). So really no reason to complain. Go GGG! Just get us someone good for your next fight.

He can’t make the best of the rest at 160 get in the ring with him right now, so he’s keeping busy. He’s building the resume. Quillin doesn’t want to know. Sturm and Geale avoided him. Let’s hope GGG keeps on this pace throughout 2014.

This is a pointless fight. As was Ward’s most recent outing against Rodriguez.

I agree he beats everybody at 160 but per what his promoters say they are making really good paydays against him. There really is no most feared man if he brings money to the table. Everybody wants Floyd because of the payday they get. If he really is giving out good paydays then people will fight him. Especially ones that want to hold titles.

as a fan of boxing instead of just a fan for a boxer you must commend any fighter that keeps a busy schedule. it helps them stay sharp, work on their boxing and tactics, and keeps them in shape year round. it should be admired whether or not you favor certain boxers. maybe he should only fight once a year and make some silly hats or t shirts and charge fans $100 for crap merchandise.

Sredmond we get it you don’t like GGG. For your information, Adama is a hard punching guy from Ghana, he’s rated by a couple of organisations and has never been stopped.
I’m waiting for you to eat some humble pie when Golovkin cleans out the middleweight division, for me it would be an historical momenrt, I never heard a black apologise for getting something wrong. Not racist just fact.

Besides what the others have pointed out, do you think it’s easy to find an opponent for GGG? If not the fighters themselves, the promoters of some of these other top middleweights are sure going to avoid him. Not a whole lot of money to be made for a crushing loss on one’s record. Sorry to be nuthugging, but that’s what will happen. He takes them all down.

IN 2014 GGG WILL GET HIS SHOT AT ONE OF THE TOP FIGHTERS UNTIL THEN ITS IN HIS BEST INTEREST TO STAY IN THE PUBLIC EYE AND MAKE A PAYCHECK (HE WILL DRAW FOR THIS STAY BUSY FIGHT) ..WHILE THIS IS GOING ON, MAYBE MARTINEZ WILL SET UP HIS TUNE UP FIGHT SOON AND BE READY FOR GGG ..THAT WILL BE A MEGA FIGHT AND GGG CAN SHUT ALL HIS CRITICS ONCE AD FOR ALL!

its obvious you don’t know boxing. its a stay busy fight. stay busy stay sharp. at least there is no 24/7 bs show trying to hype the opponent like someone else you got a crush on.

To those complaining, there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with wanting to stay busy and make some money. You can’t make a Martinez/Mayweather/Froch/Cotto/Canelo-esque fight just like that.

Other fighters have other plans and it’s not always wise for a fighter who isn’t battle tested to have lengthy periods of inactivity. You stay busy, collect your check until another big fight can be made.

That’s the problem with our sport. The meaningful fights cannot be made just like that. They take time. Why not spend that time staying busy and getting paid.

Who in the World is this? I cannot wait for his fans to tell us how this is secretly the MOST dangerous opponent on earth and how this logically sets up a major bout….GGG is a guy padding the res at this point there is no other argument to be made…
