Default Re: Proksa to step in to fight Golovkin?

Proksa is his own man and he is financially secure, being a Chairman of a small bank Board. If he didn't think this was right imo he would say so and take the Barker fight instead which is apparently waiting for him as well.So he has options. IMHO from the Hope experience, Proksa knows well that the Barker fight would be stacked against him in the UK and he wants to fight on more neutral ground and in front of a bigger audience. The fight with Golovkin gives him that. Again, the short notice is OK if Proksa feels it is and in certain circumstances, short notices are actually beneficial to a fighter at the top of his game. And let's be honest, 1 month is not that short assuming a fighter is physically and mentally healthy. All in all, I would give huge props for Proksa for taking on such a dangerous opponent on such short notice and Golovkin too, for not shying away from the challenge.
