Does Any Middleweight Stand A Chance Against Gennady Golovkin?

By Hermann Helmut April 27th, 2016 All Boxing Articles

In light of this past weekend's devastating display of shock and awe by middleweight world champion Gennady Golvkin, the question remains; is there any boxer in the world today, at or less than 160 pounds, that could derail the Kazakh destroyer?

Dominc Wade came into his challenge of Golovkin's two world titles, the WBA "Super" and IBF, along with the WBC's Interim belt, as an undefeated prospect who was the mandatory challenger for the IBF strap of "GGG".

The 28 year old American left the ring at the Forum in Inglewood, California with the first loss on his record after receiving a two round thrashing at the hands of Golovkin, who barely appeared to break a sweat while battering Wade, 18-1 (12), to the floor three times.

At 34 years of age, Golovkin, 35-0 (32), has now made 15 title defenses over seven years and has crushed his opposition within the distance during 22 consecutive appearance. He clearly is in the prime of his career and no middleweight in the world wants to meet him in the ring, or rather their backers aren't interested.

Placing Boxing politics/business aside, could anyone out there seriously challenge the king of the hill?

The top name on everyone's list of prospective Golovkin opponents, WBC middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, 46-1-1 (32), has reportedly insisted that Golovkin must make 155 pounds before he will agree to the fight.

As Golovkin's team have stated a reluctance to go below 160 pounds, don't count on this one occurring in 2016. Which is probably a good thing, at any weight, for Alvarez, who is defending his title against a welterweight, Amir Khan, on May 7 in Las Vegas.

Alvarez, who has defeated such top names as Miguel Cotto, Erislandy Lara and Austin Trout, but was beaten in a competitive contest by Floyd Mayweather Jr, would probably be the best offensive fighter to square off with Golovkin if they ever do tangle. More...


Joshua Puts IBF Crown At Risk Against Undefeated Breazeale

By Matchroom Boxing April 27th, 2016 All Press Releases

Anthony Joshua MBE will make the first defence of his IBF Heavyweight title against unbeaten American Dominic ‘Trouble’ Breazeale at The O2 in London on June 25.

Joshua took both the belt and unbeaten record of American Charles Martin at the same venue on April 9, and he'll be looking to take another '0' in his maiden defence.

Breazeale brings a formidable 17-0 record to the UK with 15 wins inside the distance and enters the clash on the back of forcing Amir Mansour to retire after five rounds of their clash in January. The Californian is no stranger to London having represented USA in the 2012 Olympic Games, where Joshua won gold. More...

Golovkin, Gonzalez Put World titles At Risk Tonight In LA

By Richard Eberline April 23rd, 2016 All Boxing Previews

Boxing's most dominating divisional champion is back in action tonight as middleweight Gennady "GGG" Golovkin puts his WBA. IBF, IBO and Interim WBC crowns up for grabs at the storied Forum venue in Los Angles. Once again fighting on a Golovkin undercard is WBC flyweight champ Roman Gonzalez.

34 year old Golovkin, 34-0 (31), has torn through his opposition since turning pro in 2006, winning all 34 of his contests, including 21 consecutive wins by stoppage and making 14 WBA title defenses.

Right now, the Kazakhstan born slugger is the most feared boxer on the planet and much attention has been given to a potential future showdown with WBC titlist Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, which could happen if Alvarez defeats Amir Khan next month and Golovkin can win his title defense tonight against mandatory challenger Dominic Wade.

Wade, 18-0 (12), brings little name recognition to the table but did win a split decision against former world champion Sam Soliman last year to become, by default, Golovkin's mandatory challenger as "GGG" KO'd David Lemieux last October to add the IBF belt to his collection.

Does Wade have a chance to derail the Golovkin juggernaut? It's unlikely but, this is Boxing and bigger upsets than this have occurred.

One of the problems for Wade is that although he is the IBF mandatory challenger, he doesn't have a great deal of experience.

The only world class opponent Wade faced, 41 year old Soliman, gave the 26 year old Maryland man real difficulty and Wade's split decision victory is generally considered by many in the media to be controversial.

The other side of the coin, however, is that Soliman is perhaps the most awkward top level opponent in any division and no one has ever looked good against the slippery Aussie. More...
