GGG, Gennady Golovkin is one of the most hyped up and coming prospects in boxing right now. The fearsome fighter out of Kazakhstan had already built up something of a mythology around himself when he made his US debut for HBO last year. Heralded for his punching power and sheer brutality, Golovkin is the kind of fighter that appeals to that part of every boxing fan that just loves to see a good KO. But is this hype for real?
Judge for yourself with this look back at some of Golovkin's best fights. Included in this video package are his most recent KO wins over the likes of Nobuhiro Ishida, Gabriel Rosado, Grzegorz Proksa, and Makoto Fuchigami, plus some of his older fights.
There's no question that Golovkin has power, and these fights show that. Saturday night, we'll find out if Matthew Macklin has any answer for that power, or if he will be KO #24.
