Gennady Golovkin (39-1, 35KOs) was back in full force yesterday when he knocked out Steve Rolls (19-1, 10KOs) in the fourth round. It was definitely a tune-up fight for Golovkin that was meant to showcase his skill in his DAZN debut. Now with that fight out of the way, who should be next for the Kazakh slugger?
Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (38-1-1 34KOs) returns on Saturday, June 8, at Madison Square Garden in New York City to take on Steve Rolls (19-0 10KOs). The fight will take place at a 164lb catchweight, raising some eyebrows in the boxing world.
On Saturday night we finally saw the long awaited showdown between Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez (52-1-2, 35 KOs) and Daniel ‘Miracle Man’ Jacobs (35-3, 29 KOs) and to some fight fans the clash did not live up to expectations.
It wasn’t too long ago that Canelo was universally loved in the boxing world.
These are two of the best middleweights in the world getting ready for war, in what should be a fight of the year candidate. Boxing fans should be in for a treat!
Sergiy “The Technician” Derevyanchenko (12-1 10KOs) will look to get back on track Saturday when he meets Jack “Golden Jack” Culcay (25-3 13KOs). The fight will take place Saturday, April 13 at The Armory in Minneapolis, Minnesota. They will clash to decide who holds the number one contender spot in the IBF rankings at Middleweight. It’s a high stakes fight, making it very interesting.
With that feather in his cap, Spence strengthened his position as the best welterweight on the planet, but where does he rank in the pound-for- pound list ? Does he crack the top 5 ? Lets see.
Last week, the WBO made Billy Joe Saunders, (26-0, 12 KOs) the mandatory challenger for Demetrius Andrade’s (27-0, 17 KOs) WBO Middleweight Title which is laughable, to say the least. What was the WBO thinking?
So where exactly does Golovkin’s place in boxing history currently stand? There is no doubt he is a top middleweight, but has he reached the ceiling that many had believed he would when he was knocking out solid, but not elite fighters in Geale, Stevens, and Lemieux?
With these two performances, what did we learn about Jermell and Jermall Charlo to wrap up 2018?
Charlo is hoping to make a big statement this weekend and prove to the boxing world that he is ready for all the big names he’s been calling out in the middleweight division, most notably Canelo Alvarez.
After a great year of boxing in 2017, 2018 promises to be an exciting year with 5 rising stars poised to make a name for themselves.
What a fight!!! Fight fans got everything that they could have wanted, except for a respectable decision by the judges. Canelo and GGG left everything they had in the ring last night. While we believe […]
If you want to watch a comedy show or a business show, then please watch Mayweather and McGregor. Everybody understands that my fight with Canelo is a true fight. It is a boxing fight and is about respect and sport."
