With that said, people shouldn't sleep on Golovkins amateur boxing background. He's got some serious impressive wins there, and while it's not EXACTLY the same as pro fighting it says something. The correlation between a great amateur = great pro is there more often than it's not.
And his style definitely caters better to pro than amateur boxing.
Mark my words, Golovkin will be the middleweight kingpin for the next 5 years.
Golovkin is 5'10, 160lbs, Froch is 6ft and reckons he can make 164lbs. I'm not sure the size disparity is all that great. It's certainly true that Froch is vastly more proven at the professional level however. I'm not saying the fight should happen, just discussing its potential.
I think this fight could
come down to punch resistance. It would be interesting to see how Golvokin would take flush punches from a heavy hitter.
He skills are very impressive and all the more so because he's not back-peddling and covering up like some skilled fighters, he's the hunter in the ring pressing the action which makes it exciting.
