This Saturday night, live from Madison Square Garden, in New York City, Gennady “GGG” Golovkin will defend his WBA middleweight title against the hard hitting Curtis “Showtime” Stevens. This fight will headline HBO’s world championship boxing.
Stevens has been viciously calling out Golovkin for the past few months, although, the talking is now over. Stevens believes that he is going to “expose” the “overrated Golovkin”, Golovkin doesn’t seem to have gotten at all involved in the trash talk, leaving that up to his trainer Abel Sanchez. Sanchez has most recently claimed that Golovkin is the third greatest middleweight of all time, only behind “Sugar” Ray Robinson, and Bernard “The Executioner” Hopkins, which is lofty praise to say the least.
Both men believe that they will win my knockout, Abel Sanchez believes there will be a knockout, this fight will no doubt have excitement. Although, for however exciting this fight promises to be, it doesn’t promise to give us a true idea of where Golovkin is as a middleweight champion. Even a dramatic one punch knockout will prove basically nothing, other than that Golovkin is an exciting fighter.
Who do think will win this weekend? Let me know if the comments section below.
