Golovkin Sees Flaws in Martinez, Thinks Pirog Can Win
By Ruslan Chikov and Alexander Pavlov
WBA "regular" middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (22-0, 19KOs) sees flaws in the boxing style of Sergio Martinez (48-2, 27KOs). WBO champion Dmitry Pirog (19-0, 15KOs) has been chasing a fight with Martinez. There are many who see Pirog as being too inexperienced to beat Martinez, but Golovkin likes Pirog's chances in winning that contest.
"It would be a pleasure to box against Martinez. He is left-handed, and I like to box with the left-handed fighters, and I can see that he's not the perfect boxer. I also think that if Martinez meets in the ring with Pirog, the chances of Dmitry winning this battle will be very high."
