Floyd Mayweather: Golovkin is OK, No Special Effects

By Radio Rahim

WBC/WBA welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (48-0, 26KOs) is not overly impressed with the devastating run of brutal wins by WBA/IBO middleweight king Gennady 'GGG' Golovkin (33-0, 30KOs).

This coming fall is a busy scheduled for pay-per-view events in boxing. Mayweather is back on September 12th against Andre Berto. The following month, on October 17th, Golovkin will face IBF champion David Lemieux in a unification. And then on November 21, Miguel Cotto and Saul "Canelo" Alvarez are likely to collide.

Mayweather was asked about the close proximity of the events and whether it's going to place a financial strain on the average boxing consumer, who may decide to skip one or two of the events.

But Mayweather misunderstood the question, and assumed the reporter was asking about a potential fight with Golovkin for the middleweight titles.

"Like I said before, I don't really know the guy...Gennady. I just know him as Triple G.....he's OK. I can't make 160, but I've seen him fight. He's straight up and down, no special effects. I wish him nothing but the best and congratulations with everything he's done with his career," Mayweather said.
