so..after this past weekend we got to see martinez look ordinary, murray look solid and quillen look sharper. in my mind...ggg is without a doubt the man to beat at 160. so how do these guys rank?

golovkin
quillen
martinez
murray
macklin
pirov
jacobs
chavez

did i miss anyone?

too early to rank jacobs, he still needs about 2 years. GGG is right now the class of the mw followed by Quillen, chavez, murray, martinez (who's only fault is his weight). I would rank pirog high but he went MIA and macklin we will see after he fights ggg.
mgrover
Martinez
Murray
Quillen
Chavez
GGG
Macklin

I rank them like that by what they've actually done rather than potential, so we'll see how GGG handles Macklin and if Martinez had an off night or that's what we've come to expect from him. While GGG is steamrolling people I want to see him take on a legitimate threat with no *. He beats Macklin I'll happily think he deserves a shot at Martinez who won't be back for a while so am sure he could take a fight with Chavez Jr for exposure, or Murray to beat the man who supposedly beat Martinez

I know macklins style isn't sexy but I think people are sleeping on him. I think he can probably beat quillen. Your forgetting lee, should probably replace that waste of space pirog with Andy

Oh and rubio

i think martinez is done. after the hand heels he'll be back for a cashout fight which i believe he will lose.

Fair enough, I just hope we don't see another Roy.

the money sergio has made here in the u.s. can stretch a long way in argentina. hopefully he won't have to fight past his time.

I think it was since he said everyone was ducking him and since he beat a 20 year old canelo up in sparring. Dude what aren't you sold on! Lol

Sad to say but Kid Chocolate might be the best MW in the world. Thats how bad the MW division is right now. 3G is too small and too easy to hit to get passed Kid Chocolate. He might be a big puncher but I like Kid Chocolates counter punching a little bit better. I know hes still a little raw but none of those other guys are great boxers. And Sergio is past it. Kid Chocolate by default.

LOL

I'm just gonna start asking everybody the same question, "Since when did (insert fighter) become the end all be all?"

I think GGG is just looking for big paydays...duhhhh, who's not looking for a big payday? He's going about it the wrong way though...he cant keep knocking the stuffing out of these dudes and expect somebody to look his way...well, a fighter that has something to lose, wont be looking his way. Lol

I like GGG, but you guys like Kid Chopped-Tooth, who seems to be fighting and beating whoever they put in front of him. He can be hit, but he also hits back, harder, and makes a show of it. Those are the types of guys that everybody wants to fight. They appear to be basic (like Danny Garcia), but they have so much animal in them, that they wont be denied.

Some other fights can be set up in the MW division, and it seems to be coming together slowly. We have GGG vs Macklin, Rubio's still out there, where in the fluck is Andy Lee?, Chavez (for how long long?), Sergio (who may have had an off night...hopefully), Jacobs, Angulo (soon), Lara (sometimes), Kirkland (soon)...so yes, the division is coming together.

laugh.gif seriously. where is that dude? unsure.gif

pirog was a pleasant surprise...then he just disappeared. hbo should be trying to bring him over to the u.s. and make him a star since their line up has diminished significantly.

"Pirog" and "bad management" goes in the same sentence with "flies" and "shit".

Yes and no. As an unknown fighter...he's incredibly exciting. Now that everyone knows him....he's slightly overrated. I'm with CShel. I really like the dude (and I'm not really fond of most sluggers). It's just that people are going WAY overboard with this guy. It's like people act if you don't mention his name in any permutation of a MW event, it's blasphemy. If I had to make a comparison, I guess I'd say he's like a Middleweight version of Matthysse.

i think he's better than matthysse skill wise. we'll find out. the opposition is out there for him. hopefully the fights get made.
