Right now, Martinez.
Martinez drove him back and finished up stronger than Jr did.
His future isn't bright at all, he had his chance and he fell well short.

who has Golovkin ended? Proksa? past-prime Ouma?
aside from Williams (who was a KO waiting to happen), who has Martinez ended? Macklin? Barker? Dzinzi? good, but not that impressive.
Chavez Jr. can finish pretty good.
Kirkland is a natural finisher. if he hurts you, you're done for.
Froch has ended guys like Taylor and Bute. he's a very cool finisher, picks his shots and doesn't smother his work.
Pavlik was an excellent finisher in his 160 heydey.

Kessler scores pretty emphatic KO's.So does Abraham.
Golovkin was my pick but the best KO any of them scored was Martinez' win over Paul Williams

golovkin. that's what he was born to do. weather the storm with your big chin. catch up to your opponent. knock him out with your heavy hands and body work.
ko artists fight to knock people out. they set out to knock people out. they train that way. many of them don't even think about scorecards, and winning rounds.
martinez is not that sort of fighter. he's got some sharp punches, but he's not at all your typical "knockout artist." his punching power is also greatly exaggerated on the strength of his williams knockout. he's a boxer. he looks to use the ring and make you miss. he uses his legs.
he outjabbed dzinziruk, and ended up hurting him in exchanges. he was the better boxer whose power imposed itself. when he got him badly hurt for the third knockout he stepped it up and went for the knockout.
against barker he worked against his guard with light shots and eventually started to get through.
i also think we're starting to see him punching more and harder because his legs can't go 12 rounds at his normal pace. the guy is as athletic a fighter and stylist as anybody since jones. he's 37. his legs aren't quite what they used to be, and he's got to rely a bit more on his power.
i don't want to make it seem as though martinez isn't a good puncher, or a threat for a knockout. chavez jr walked through huge punishment, an ability afforded to him in part by his massive size on fight night. martinez is a good puncher and a surprisingly aggressive fighter, given his abilities. he's just not a "KO artist." knockouts come to him, he doesn't go and make them. golovkin starts training camp with knockout on the mind.
