Golovkin is the worst possible match up for Jr and I really hope the fight gets made.
It doesn't mean Jr. can't also give him problems. Jr. will eat shots, but he will also be imposing his size and dishing plenty out. Golovkin's true durability and mobility have yet to be tested against someone like that.

How impressive was Vera's stoppage of Lee? There's a reason Lee is not a top 10 middle, he can barely get separation from McEwen.
Jr. doesn't have to be less hittable, just more durable.
Lee has fought competition on par, if not better, than Golovkin.
GGG may have better punching form on the inside, but beating up Proksa and Rosado don't guarantee he'll cave in Chavez Jr., who took Martinez's best shots all night.
