Recently, Gennady Golovkin revealed to the media that his biggest dream is to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. at 154 pounds before the best pound-for-pound fighter retires.
Golovkin took some time off from training and spoke with some members of the media a few days following the most anticipated fight in boxing history.
To the mass population, the recent fight between Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao seemed lackluster but not to Golovkin, who is clearly a fan of technical skills but more importantly, he is ready to face fighters which he considers the best.
This dream to fight Mayweather may seem like a long shot but once he takes care of his upcoming opponent, Willie Monroe Jr., Golovkin is free to face any fighter.
Whether or not Mayweather agrees to face Golovkin is another issue. It would be wondrous if Mayweather's camp would allow him to face such a dangerous opponent.
The fighter from Kazakhstan is regarded by most boxing fans as the reincarnation of Mike Tyson in the middleweight division because of his proficiency to knock out his opponents. More...

Well, the "Fight of the Century" finally came off and not surprisingly, welterweight Floyd Mayweather Jr boxed his way to a unanimous decision over Manny Pacquiao last night at MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
WBC/WBA champion Mayweather started off controlling the distance and pace of the contests, keeping southpaw WBO champion Pacquiao at bay with a combination of height advantage, movement and sharp lead right hands.
Pacquiao slipped the leash in the fourth frame, ripping off fast, concussive punches that shook Mayweather.
But "Money" regained control in the fifth and slowed things back down, using exceptional defense. Pacquiao mounted a good sixth round but Mayweather managed to dampen the outburst.
Aside from a good tenth round from Pacquiao, it was all Mayweather the rest of the way as he just wasn't there for "Pacman" to hit on most opportunities.
Judges at ringside favored Mayweather's accuracy over Pacquiao's aggression, awarding Floyd a 118-110, 116-112, 116-112 unanimous decision.
Mayweather moves to 48-0 (26) and now has three of the four world titles at welter while Pacquiao falls to 57-6-2 (38), having gone 3-3 in his last six outings. More...

With a fight of the magnitude that we see with tonight's Floyd Mayweather Jr vs. Manny Pacquiao clash, casual fans, whether interested in Boxing or not, will know enough about both fighters and how they go about their business to make their own predictions as to how this fight will play out.
This is a good thing; I have had more talks about my beloved sport in the last couple of weeks with the very casual fan than ever before.
The procedure of analysing this or any fight is looking at strengths and weaknesses of the boxers. If there are any common opponents, this usually helps and the participant's previous records with fighters of similar styles.
When comparing common ground opponents of Mayweather and Pacquiao, the names Miguel Cotto, Ricky Hatton, Juan Manuel Marquez, Shane Mosley and Oscar De La Hoya come up.
But there are sometimes subtle, sometimes glaringly and obvious differences that make these opponents incomparable.
With Hatton, Mayweather fought the best Hatton there was ever going to be, and in reality he outclassed "The Hitman" from beginning to end.
Hatton was never really the same fighter again, he had ballooned in weight, there were reported drug problems and depression, and when Pacquiao fought Hatton, Ricky had only been in with limited opposition since his loss to Mayweather, such as non-puncher Paulie Malignaggi and Juan Lazcano, who Hatton struggled with.
Also Hatton had left his trainer of 10 years, Billy Graham, and was being trained by Floyd Mayweather Sr, who can’t do southpaw pads and was reportedly not as interested in Hatton as he was with the media.
Mayweather and Pacquiao fought different versions of Ricky Hatton. More...
