TEAM GOLOVKIN HEADED BY MILD MANNERED LOEFFLER
San Francisco, CA– Gennady “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.

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.
