I agree, but this fight is a win-win-win-win.
1: The fans get to see an exciting match, which might actually not be a walk-in-the-park for Golovkin. (We might even see Golovkin's chin & heart tested, which we really haven't seen yet.)
2: The networks get an exciting fight to broadcast, with two explosive fighters that have recently been in the public eye.
3: Golovkin gets a reasonably important win on his resume, which will help him get the fights he really wants.
4: Thurman would most likely lose, and he desperately needs a dose of cold hard reality. One devastating loss could be the best thing that ever happens to him. Imagine how good he could be if he started to actually worry about defense.
