Chavez is big and can take punches. GGG is rather small and we really don't know how he'll react to a hard puncher late in fights. I think a fight with Chavez would be fun to watch but if I were handling Gennady I wouldn't advise him to jump at that fight right away. Take a couple tune ups with big pressure guys then test it. Its more dangerous for him than it is for Chavez who knows what he can take into the late rounds.
When you say that Chavez can take a punch, you're going by who's he absorbed punishment from. Chavez has absorbed punishment from Lee/Rubio/Martinez, so it's safe to say he can take a punch, right? That's what I meant when I said fans are comparing their resumes. Golovkin hasn't faced any hard punchers or pressure fighters, so going by their resumes, it's safe to say that Chavez is more proven. Some fans are gonna choose him to win on the strength of his opposition.
You said that GGG becomes tired and frustrated if his opponent is still in front of him after a certain amount of time, and I wanna know what gave you that indication. He seems like a calm and collected customer in the ring to me.
