TEAM GOLOVKIN HEADED BY MILD MANNERED LOEFFLER

San Francisco, CAGennady “Good Boy” Golovkin (27-0, 24 KOs) has made his terrorizing presence felt in the middleweight (160 lb.) division at the expense of his so-far unworthy challengers. The men who dare stand across the ring from him rarely last long enough to hear the final bell. He is on a pace to fight four times this year; very high activity by the standards of today’s contenders. Each of his wins so far have come in impressive fashion. First was Gabriel Rosado, who had his face disfigured before being stopped on cuts.

AND THE “TRIPLE G” BEAT GOES ON

Next was Nobuhiro Ishida, who despite being in with tough bangers such as James Kirkland (whom he drilled), Paul Williams and Rigoberto Alvarez (less famous brother of “Canelo”) had not been stopped in over 30 fights. Golovkin disposed of them with minimal effort. After that came Matthew Macklin, a tough Brit who had given lineal middleweight champion Sergio Martinez hell in an 11th round stoppage loss. But the “Good Boy” did it in just three (one of the most brutal and beautiful bodyshots you’ll ever see), prompting his British foe to say afterwards that Golovkin was the by far the best fighter he had ever fought.

GENNADY GOLOVKIN: CAN HE KO SERGIO MARTINEZ?

Gennady "GGG" Golovkin

NO SHAME IN FEARING GENNADY GOLOVKIN

Los Angeles, CA– World middleweight (160 lb.) king Sergio Martinez (51-2-2, 28 KOs) has been both exciting and successful once he got that long awaited “shot” at a title. When you watch “Maravilla” fight, you are witnessing an elite athlete who would likely succeed in any sport but chose to invest his time in boxing. A combination of age, injuries and the rise of a new beast in the middleweight division has raised some doubt about Martinez’ status as the undisputed best at 160.

MACKLIN WAS SMOKED LIKE ENGLISH FAG

WBA belt bearer Gennady Golovkin (27-0, 24 KOs) obliterated solid contender Matthew Macklin (29-4, 20 KOs) on Saturday night, and there is now a considerable amount of demand for a Martinez-Golovkin tilt in 2014. Just a year ago, I would have said Martinez would embarrass GGG in the ring. Now I’m not so sure. Oh, and before I get jumped on, a “fag” in the United Kingdom is a cigarette.

MARTINEZ RIPE FOR TAKING?

Martinez is coming off one of the worst performances of his career against the relatively unknown Martin Murray (25-1-1, 11 KOs). His movement was nowhere near the level it has been in recent years, his power looked non-existent in many rounds, and his reflexes appear to have slowed as well. Read more

GENNADY GOLOVKIN SENDS MESSAGE TO WORLD

Golovkin Finishing Macklin

Mashantucket, CTMGM Grand/Foxwoods Resort (HBO) Champion Gennady Golovkin (27-0, 24 KOs) KO 3 Matthew Macklin (29-5, 19 KOs) (WBA 160 lb. title)  One cannot bypass this dominant performance.  The cool-calm approach to his work is amazing.  Left hand to body ends matters.  Felt Macklin may have “over sold” blow, but solid and well placed it was.  Time was 1:22 round three.  Props to trainer Abel Sanchez and his return to the mountaintop as he had World champ Terry Norris and others in years gone by.  Would pick “GGG” over Sergio Martinez, recognized World middleweight champion, who is closer to 40 than 35 and of late looks older than his age.

GREAT WHITE HOPE IS DEAD!  READ ON..

One of the bloggers here suggested that the day of the “White Hope” in professional boxing is now a dead cliche!  What he meant was white guys are now much more often than in prior generations to be at the top of weight classes sans the “protection” afforded some Caucasian fighters in days gone by.  The heavyweight division is owned by Russians, Wladimir & Vitali Klitschko and now Golovkin takes over at middleweight.  While they are white, they are not Americans.  Thus, the Great White Hope is dead.  As for the Great White American Hope, the search continues!

RATING BOXING’S BEST PUNCHERS

TOP MIDDLE GENNADY “GGG” GOLOVKIN HEADLINES HBO SATURDAY

Los Angeles, CA- An often used quote in boxing is “Never fall in love with a puncher.” On Saturday night, 2004 Olympic Silver medalist from Kazakhstan and current WBA middleweight (160 lb.) titleholder Gennady Golovkin (26-0, 13 KOs) puts that unbeaten record on the line against formidable challenger from the UK Matthew “Mac the Knife” Macklin (29-4, 20 KOs).

WILL GOLOVKIN STOP MACKLIN?

Unfortunately the experienced veteran is the one going into a gun fight with a knife. Golovkin, has an impressive amateur resume with a stoppage win over former IBF super middleweight (168) champ Lucian Bute (31-1, 24 KOs), and Olympic victories over super middleweight contender Andre Dirrell (21-1, 14 KOs) and middleweight title challenger Andy Lee (30-2, 20 KOs), and if he is equal to the massive hype he’s been garnering he should cut through Macklin “like a knife through butter.” The Kazakhstan native has recorded 13 consecutive stoppages, and a victory Saturday in a bout that hails live from Foxwoods Resort and Casino in Mashantucket, Conneticut will bring him one step closer to facing aging middleweight champion Sergio Martinez (51-2-2, 26 KOs). Below is a list of boxings top knockout artists.

ARGENTINE TOPS THE LIST

1.LUCAS MATTHYSSE 140lbs-(34-2, 32 KOs) WBC interim champion.

GENNADY GOLOVKIN SHARES BIG NIGHT WITH DANIEL GEALE!

Gennady Golovkin

MIDDLEWEIGHT DIVISION NOW HAS NEW STARS!

San Francisco, CA– A fortnight ago, Gennady Golovkin of Kazakhstan (now fighting out of Germany) had his coming out party as he battered Grzegorz Proska around the ring, dropping the sturdy middleweight (160 lbs) for the first time in his career. In all, Proska kissed the canvas three times before the referee mercifully waived the contest off. Golovkin looked great and there are a lot of enticing options for him after an impressive United States debut on HBO’s Boxing After Dark.

“DOUBLE G” APPEARS TO “HAVE THE GOODS”

Golovkin is the rare mixture of brawler and technical boxer. He has great power in both hands but does not lack discipline like most fighters with some pop. It was that deadly concoction that allowed “Double G” to improve his career record to 24-0 with 21 knockouts. More importantly, he put on a show for the fans that puts him in a position to land some big fights.

BRAVE PROSKA HAD HEAVY HANDS!

The man on the other side of the ring, Grzegorz Proska, deserves a lot of credit as well. He was a live underdog, and was able to touch Golovkin with some powerful shots. Unfortunately for Proska, “GG” was able to touch him far more often. Proska displayed a great deal of heart and a solid chin in standing up to the power of Golovkin. He protested the fight being called off, this even after eating several shots that had him standing on wobbly legs.
