Golovkin/Rigondeaux are gradually becoming popular because the top guys in their division would rather pretend like they don't exist. Not only that, but they are talented and have extensive amateur experience. Golovkin's style is much more accessible than Rigo's, but even then, Rigo was able to get a title shot in 9 fights.
Take the title off Canelo and I wouldn't criticize GBP's matchmaking as much.
If this was the case then Canelo would have far less negativity attached to himself. Facts are Canelo has been pampered from day 1 since being affiliated with Golden Boy.
I really could not believe it when they mentioned Canelo-Trout is actually being signed off, lol.
