Macklin: Golovkin is Human, Beatable Like Everyone Else

By Mike Coppinger

Gennady Golovkin is being trumpeted as an unbeatable fighter, an immovable force. But all fighters fall, no matter the hype, Matthew Macklin says, and he plans to turn the trick on Saturday at Foxwoods in Mashantucket, Conn., on HBO.

“They  will get beaten, they do get beaten. They are human,” Macklin said. “When they get hit on the chin, they get knocked out just like anyone else does. When they go 10 rounds at my pace, they get tired just like anyone else does."

Macklin says that he's not only the best opponent of Golovkin's career, but also the only fighter with the requisite confidence to beat him

“A lot of these guys – Rosado and (Nobuhiro) Ishida – deep down they know they’re not really on that level," Macklin stated. “But I’ve proven I’m on that level to myself more importantly than anyone. I know I belong on this level.”

Any time someone says something like this, I get the feeling they're not very optimistic about their own chances. lol

Of course Golovkin is only human. After all he's only beaten European bums and faded contenders like you Macklin.

Of course, but you're not the man to do it, Matt Macklin.

Macklin 33/1 to shock the world and KO GGG in the first 3 rounds, lol. Realistically, I think that's his only chance anyway. He doesn't seem to carry his power through a fight anyhow and especially not after GGG has…

"He's a MAN! He's NOT a machine, he's a MAN!" ... having said that, GGG in 6.
