Supposedly it's not as one sided as it seems? If anything Canelo was getting to GGG who wasn't bothering with any head movement.

i learned about golovkin back in '03 when i acquired tape (yes, video tape) from a kid i was training at the time. he told me back then that golovkin would be the guy to beat at the '04 olympics. i was impressed waaaay back then even against the unknown opposition he faced at the time. as a pro...he has continued to impress me.

the former soviet bloc has plenty of talent that hasn't made the splash i thought they would by now...but some are still on the rise.

what happened to matt korobov!?!?!?! southpaw...very solid. he was signed with toprank but has disappeared.

and what about dimitry pirog!!?!?!?! dude was so impressive in his ko of danny jacobs and hasn't been back on american tv. what gives!?

He suppose to fight ggg, ducked him. Has had a string of suspect injuries, bad decision making, and a ridiculous belief of self entitlement. Spent so much time chasing Martinez he completely neglected fighting anyone else of note.

Right!

Shit! Just reading this column, made me hurt in several places. I'm hoping that Canelo learned from this sparring session. If he didn't learn anything else, then he damn sure knows to stay away from GGG if he wants his career to last.

Well they say competition has been dodging GGG while Canelo's handlers have pretTY much had him dodging the competition. I would assume that's the reason.

Please spare me the whole world is ducking GGG argument. Hes been fighting bums his whole career. Hes not a draw so obviously people arent lining up but hes got a network all over his nuts. How many middleweights out there get the chance to fight on HBO? He can getter fights than who hes been fighting. This shit is Berto, Alexander, Margarito, and every other HBO hype job all over again. The only difference is Berto and Alexander are black and the public hates those two. Its fighters getting fed bum opposition. The minute GGG steps up in opposition is the minute this bum gets dropped.

I kind of agree... Not on the whole race thing because everybody liked berto and xander so idk where that came from but GGG has been fighting very low level competition. A lot of hype and not a lot of walk, amateurs and sparring wars don't mean shit. I wanna see something, I really hope the GGG chavez fight gets made.

The more i learn about him and see him, the more I'm impressed. People talk about chins, but damn this guy doesn't know what it means to feel pain, he eats punches and will still back you down with great boxing. I like him, i think he's alittle crazy, he moves his head when he needs to. I think when he doesn't move his head you should be worried because he cant feel anything you throw at him and you just get tired as he finds his opening. Makes fan Friendly fighting look easy. On top of it all he fights like every 3 months, whats not to love.

I forgot what it was, that he hadn't be downed before or hasn't lost in awhile. I'm not sure which can someone refresh me.

But GGG is what i think of when i think of Crazy People training in Siberia. Tough as nails
I don't think anyone now can beat him except Ward, would give him a good fight too. If you have been downed before, or lost in your Pro career, you will probably not beat GGG.

i think ggg/ward is the biggest fight in boxing at this point. ggg/martinez is the next biggest imo.

I think the general rule of thumb nowadays is, if you whooped my ass in sparring, you pretty much have NO SHOT of fighting me anywhere near my prime. See Martirosyan vs JCC Jr lol
