Monroe is Not Ruling Out a Knockout of Golovkin

By Radio Rahim

WBA/IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (32-0, 29 KOs) has been warned by his upcoming challenger, Boxcino champion Willie Monroe Jr. (19-1, 6 KOs). The two of them will battle this Saturday night in an HBO Championship Boxing main event from the Forum in Inglewood, California.

Monroe is a heavy underdog and Golovkin has been demolishing opponents left and right.

No opponent has been able to last the distance with Golovkin since June of 2008 (and that was an eight round contest). Golovkin's last opponent Martin Murray last eleven rounds, but took a beating in the process and was stopped before further damage was inflicted.

Monroe, with six knockouts, is not a puncher but that numerical stat is not going to influence his desire to make it a fight - and he won't rule out a potential win by knockout.

"You never know with a cat like me. I may go in there and want to box him or he may touch me and I don't like it - and then I may want to fight. We'll see what happens on the 16th. They say scared money don't make money. And I want to make big money," Monroe told

"Once God is for you, no man can be against you. The best of men at their best are still just men. He puts his pants on the same way that I do, one leg at a time, so I can't let what other people say deter me from what I'm going out to do - and that be middleweight champion."

"You never can tell with a cat like, maybe it will go the full twelve or maybe I'll get pissed off."

I like to not rule out knockouts of fights I am going into as well. Probably won't happen but hey I am not ruling it out.

If you believe he's going to get the KO stake £/$120 thats £/$10 for an Monroe KO in each round and get back £/$2500 guaranteed. Source: Bet365 With 19 wins and 6 ko's I'll be staying well clear. Good luck…

What is it with these over-confident Americans? Dude is going to get sparked out in a round or two.
