Middleweight contender Curtis Stevens (27-4, 20KOs) is preparing for his IBF eliminator against Hassan N'Dam on October 1, but he took some time to reflect on last month's fight between IBO/WBA champion Gennady "GGG" Golovkin and challenger Daniel Geale. Prior to the fight, several insiders tabbed Geale, a former two-time champion, as Golovkin's biggest test to date. GGG blew Geale out in three easy rounds.

agree w/ Deranged Curtis Stevens is a good, exciting fighter to watch. but he's not world-class. lacks the technical skills to match his power. GGG finishes him off inside of 5rd in the event of a rematch. like many (including…
