"Who would give a flying ****, and why are you even asking? Who knows Gennady Golovkin other than you, me and a few other people? How many people would he bring to the table? How much money would he generate? ... He is a very good fighter, but it's a fight that economically makes no sense."
But Martin Murray makes economical sense? If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck huh.
I agree with DiBella that it doesn't make sense financially speaking. But who the F are they fighting or trying to fight that makes sense financially? Macklin, Dzinziruk, Barker?? At least Golovkin fought on HBO 1 time; you would think that would make more sense than most guys available right now not named Canelo, Chavez, Cotto, or Mayweather.
