GGG is a good boxer who won silver at the olympics and has a vast amateur career behind him. sometimes he neglects defense bcuz he feels he can in that particular situation but that doesnt mean he cant box when he has to. he can box very well, he beat dirrell in an amateur fight and say what you want about dirrell but hes a phenomenal athlete and a very good pure boxer. very hard to beat in an amateur fight but golovkin did it, anyone here can imagine angulo fighting for medals in the olympics outboxing guys of dirrells caliber?
golovkin is smart and very fundmentally sound, his skill level and overall ability is far beyond that of angulo.
At those same Olympics Angulo lost to Andy Lee by 15 points. Lee lost to N'jikam and he lost to Gaydarbekov who took Gold beating Golovkin in the finals. Gaydarbekov also beat Taylor, Lacy, Erdei, Sillakh, Korobov
