Stevens: Golovkin Has Never Been Tested By a Puncher

By Ryan Burton

On Saturday, Curtis Stevens will face Saul Roman in Connecticut in a bout that will be broadcast on NBC Sports. Stevens visited with us on the latest edition of BoxingScene Radio to talk about the fight and his future plans.  

The Brooklyn, NY native said that he respects Roman and knows he's a good fighter. He does however doubt that his opponent can withstand hia power.

"I got Saul in front of me. He's a Mexican. He comes to fight and I do too. People will see a good fight on Saturday. He's been down but he gets back up. We'll see if he can handle my power," Stevens stated.

Stevens feels that he is ready to fight for a title but doesn't think there is much incentive for the belt holders to face him right now so he wants to increase his profile. 

"I would love a shot at the end of 2013 but it's not really up to me. The champs have to give me a shot. I am high risk. I have devastating power. I can end a fight with one shot," Stevens explained.

A fight that has been mentioned as a possibility is Stevens facing Gennady Golovkin on November 2nd at the Madison Square Garden in New York. Stevens said he would love to face him and is curious to see if GGG can take his power.

"I would love it. We haven't seen him get tested yet. We haven't seen him get hit by a decent puncher.  He caught Macklin with an excellent body shot but we saw that he (Macklin) was already scared sh*tless. They are trying to make him into a monster. Not taking anything away from him. He gets it done in there but they haven't put him in with a guy who can punch," Stevens told BoxingScene Radio.

I'd root for GG to beat Ward. I'd also root for any orthodox fighter with power to beat GG. Ward is a converted southpaw. I never liked that type of style.
