Stevens: Golovkin is a Hype Job, I'll Demolish His Ass!
By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes
Middleweight contender Curtis Stevens (25-3, 18KOs) is not scared or impressed with WBA/IBO champion Gennady Golovkin (27-0, 24KOs), regarded as one of the most feared fighters in the sport of boxing. On November 2nd in New York City, Stevens will get a chance to prove his point when he faces Golovkin in the ring. Stevens, scoring deadly knockouts since moving down from super middleweight, is very focused on testing the stability of Golovkin's chin.
"Who is scared of him? Nobody is scared of him. I've been calling him out. I have to go in there and show everybody that he's not like that, that he's overrated. I'm going to go in there and demolish his ass. He's a hype job....[he's been] fighting blown-up 154-pounders. But I'll give him credit - he's doing his job. But don't make it seem like he's some God when he's not fighting anyone. He's fighting 154-pounders. I'm going to go in there and do what I do best - check in and check out - and bring that belt back to Brooklyn," Stevens told BoxingScene.com.
"He can hit but we have to see him get hit. You've seen me get hit. Yeah, I've been down before but I get back up and fight. It's not whether he can fight, it's whether he can take a shot and withstand the thunderstorm that I'm going to drop on his ass. Come November 2nd he will be tested and he will be conquered."

[QUOTE=Dolor;13672895]How about you promise to bump the thread regardless of the outcome? In case GGG KOs Stevens, will you be man enough to admit that your were wrong?[/QUOTE] I was wrong . . . GGG deserves the be recognized as…Comment by MartinC on 08-24-2013
The thing that hurts GGG is fighting guys like Stevens and calling it a title defense. If you look at his top fights only one was meaningful.Comment by Reloaded on 08-24-2013
I don't think Golovkin is a hype job his amateur pedigree is to good for that on top of what we have seen from him in the pros .Comment by Plutonium on 08-24-2013
