I admit though Rigondeaux doesn't have the style to become a huge star, just saying.
Just a couple of questions, because I don't know all that much about Gennady. Does he speak any English? Is he personable? (He appears to be.) These are two important factors, as we've discussed. Another thing is, Golovkin is white (or is white in appearance). Perhaps most importantly of all, as you pointed out, GGG knocks people the fuck out on a regular basis.

All these factors can easily create a crossover star that doesn't need a natural fan-base. Even now, I don't think Gennady has a following outside the hardcore fans. Does he? Maybe he will after tonight....
