Money is the issue, not skill for GGG

golovknin00001By Sotoman: On Saturday June 29th, WBA middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin made truly easy work of Mathew Macklin.  For true boxing fans, the results were predetermined.  I am not sure they though it would end in such style, but GGG did in 3 rounds what Sergio Martinez struggled to do in 11 rounds.  Andre Ward made little to no mention about fighting GGG yet, and I highly doubt it will be soon. 

Individuals all over the world continue to suggest that GGG has not proven himself to get a big fight.  Well he has! and with and amateur pedigree which extends well beyond Wards, some just need not to comment:  Wards Amateur record: Ward started boxing in 1994 and had a record of 115–5, GGG finished his amateur career with an outstanding record of 345-5. Riddle me that!

Nothing more can be said about GGG.  His only enemies is exposure and the rejection of fighter who want to fight him.  He is a high risk/low reward guy at the moment.  In my opinion, you cannot just simply box him.  He will pressure you till his last breath and as Macklin stated he will “not let you settle into a groove.” SO FANS, we know that issue is not his skill, it is the MONEY!  

GGG will and can compete with the best in the world, that’s a guarantee, but the money he is bringing in just doesn’t match up.  Oh and by the way, Nobody seems to be calling him out. GGG has stated he will fight anyone between 154-168. To me that’s calling anyone out!! within those divisions.  As the questions says (to all P4P fighters within those divisions) YOU SCARED!

As a writer, I truly enjoy writing articles that attract both hardcore fans of boxing as well as those who I like to call “passer by’s”. In addition, I find it pleasing to read the comments made by readers under all the articles on the site. In spite of that, some of these people commenting truly have no idea or about boxing and the way it works. With that said lets move one to the point of this piece.
