Gennady I've only seen clips of; a round here, a round there. But he concerns me. The little I've seen of Golovkin seems to show a determined fighter with solid skills. In any event, this would be a match-up of two young, very capable, fighters. I'd love to see it...and I'll be rooting for "Kid Chocolate".
I agree brode. There is something about Quillin that doesn't sell his stock well just yet. Maybe it's his awkward style or the fact that he hasn't had a career defining win, old Winky and Mckeown don't cut it.
Golovkin on the other hand, when it comes to styles is everything Pete is not, very poised and throws well balanced thudding shots but also hasn't fought anyone of much importance. I'd too be rooting for Chocolate. I feel the sooner this fight gets made the better Quillin's chances are.
