Golovkin is everything good about boxing but is confronted with everything bad about it having carefully managed fighters unwilling to fight him because he's viewed as too much risk. Martinez, Chavez, Geale, Quillin, Sturm, N'jikam and a long list of contenders all unwilling.
Dude, you act like 3G is the only one in boxing to take chances. Sergio crawled around in obscurity for years until making a name for himself..........he has earned the right to chase the big paydays. He wouldn't be fighting guys 4 inches taller than himself, outweighing him by 10-15 pounds and younger than him by over 10 years if he was scared of people.
If they fought, your boy would lose. Don't know about those other guys but Sergio would have no issue fighting him from a capability/confidence standpoint......Sergio is near the top of the game now and is only going to fight PPV fights from now on against big names.
