But the same is true for ANY of the other rounds where the judges didn't agree. They agreed on 6 rounds & didn't agree on 6 so you could say the same about the other 5 rounds. If the guy had scored the 1st round for Barker & the 12th round for Geale instead of vice versa the scoring would be exactly the same. It's a pointless observation.
lol i have no idea what conversation you're talking about, or the context, but becoming one of the top 100 boxers of all time requires a good deal more than a knockout of mathew macklin. i've always been high on golovkin's abilities / potential. i love the way he fights. he's a knockout puncher with a great amateur background and technical ability. he's developing a serious jab, and his chin is terrific.
when people ask me about whether or not i think "X is a potential ATG" i look at the potential resume he's going to be able to put together in the time he's got before retirement. i'm not entirely sure how familiar you are with the top 100 most accomplished boxers of all time, but you've got to have a hell of a resume to get counted among them.
