[QUOTE=tito_bandito]What's that? Golovkin fighting another faded contender? Where's the world class competition for this hype job?[/QUOTE] He was supposed to fight Pirog but Pirog got a back injury. But you probably don't know who that is either if you're calling Golovkin a hype job.

[QUOTE=Da7thsign]I never knew GGG was that tall. They looked to be about even in height when you give them the good old eyeball measurement. Maybe GGG had shoes on? Anyway im excited as hell for this fight, im gonna go as far as saying that Mack will turn this into a much better fight than ever...

All these fighters look skinny and drained - except Macklin.
