Bellew: Gennady Golovkin Absolutely Blasts Miguel Cotto

By Edward Chaykovsky

Cruiserweight contender Tony Bellew believes WBA/IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (29-0, 26KOs) would demolish the competition at 160-pounds. He doesn't see anyone being capable of taking out the hard puncher from Kazakhstan. He picks Golovkin to demolish WBC champion Miguel Cotto, defeat WBO champion Peter Quillin and destroy Sergio Martinez. The only two fighters he could see giving Golovkin trouble at 160 are Quillin and countryman Martin Murray.

"I think he absolutely blasts Miguel Cotto. He destroys what is left of Sergio Martinez. I think the biggest fight out there that can test him physically is the Peter Quillin fight. He’s unbeaten, he’s dangerous, he can punch, he can do a fair bit. I think Golovkin beats Quillin but it’s a test, a stiff test. I believe Martin Murray would be a good fight too because the style Murray possesses is a tight guard, he doesn’t give you much. He’s a world-class middleweight. He’d cause Golovkin problems," Bellew told Sky Sports.

As far as this Saturday's fight against former two-time champion Daniel Geale, Bellew is picking Golovkin to win by knockout.

"I don’t think it’ll be an early finish because I think Golovkin’s at the stage where he says ‘you know what, these early fights do me no good’. I see it going between six and eight and I think Geale will be sickened with the body punches, with the head punches, and I think it’ll be Goodnight Vienna," Bellew said.
