Golovkin is a very technical and traditional fighter with a big punch. Proksas unorthodox and unconventional style is almost opposite of Golovkins, hopefully he can fluster him with this. It will be a great fight.
styles make fights
Proksa will get some exposure in the US, which hopefully will give him bigger fights, regardless whether he loses or wins
I'm not too confident he will win, because taking a fight like this on such short notice against a puncher like Golovkin is pretty risky
