title Saunders says Golovkin getting old, ready to beat him

By Dan Ambrose: WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders (24-0, 12 KOs) says he’s ready to fight IBF/IBO/WBA/WBC middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs) in Kazakhstan on June 10, because he thinks the soon to be 35-year-old Triple G has gotten old enough to be beaten now. Saunders says he told the boxing fans a little over a year ago that he wanted to wait 18 months to 2 years before facing Golovkin. That time has now gone by and Saunders is ready to fight Golovkin and beat him in his own country of Kazakhstan. Read the rest of this entry »

title Jacobs gave Golovkin too much respect says Rosado

By Allan Fox: Former world title challenger Gabriel Rosado was disappointed in the performance by Daniel Jacobs in his loss to Gennady “GGG” Golovkin last weekend. Rosado says that Jacobs made the mistake of giving Golovkin far too much respect by not using his own punching power to beat him. Rosado believes that the fight was there to be won by Jacobs (32-2, 29 KOs) if he had fought with some intensity and used his own formidable punching power to trade with Triple G.

title Golovkin separating myth from facts

By Angel Flowers:

GGG More Myth Than Legend

Gennady “GGG” Golovkin went to battle with the unheralded Daniel “Miracle Man” Jacobs this past Saturday night on Pay Per View. From that fight we were able to determine a lot about the middleweight kingpin separating myth from the legend he has inspired. Guys like Golovkin remind me of Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson, an absolute monster until they step in the ring with a semi live body. Golovkin was given a boxing lesson almost the entire fight, his fourth round knockdown of Jacobs was more of a tackle but giving the champion the benefit of doubt we will say it was the only real time he got to Jacobs. Meanwhile Jacobs, a man who was thoroughly dominated then knocked out by Dmitry Pirog looked to have been given Golovkin all kinds of problems, which thoroughly explains to this writer why Golovkin has been acting the way he has.

title GGG deserves #1 P4P rating

By Bob Smith: Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs) deserves to be rated #1 pound-for-pound after his 12 round unanimous decision win over Daniel Jacobs (32-2, 29 KOs) last Saturday night at Madison square Garden, in New York. There is no excuse for him not to be #1, since he did defeat the second best middleweight in the world in Danny Jacobs, and since the current P4P #1, at least according to ESPN, Roman “Chocalatito” Gonzalez (46-1, 38 KOs), lost on Saturday to Srisaket Sor Rungvisai (42-4-1, 38 KOs) by a 12 round majority decision. First, I’ll discuss the Jacobs fight; then, the issue of GGG as P4P #1; finally, where GGG ranks among the best boxers of the last 30-40 years or so. Read the rest of this entry »
