The Karmazin of only a year or two before would've dealt with him.
He lost every second against Geale; those scorecards were puzzlingly close. It was a clear 120-108.
He lost cleanly to mediocre Dyah Davis, and got dropped by him. (larger maybe but less p4p hard-hitting than GGG)
He lost cleanly to 1-dimensional Don George, and got dropped by him as well. (larger maybe but less p4p hard-hitting than GGG)
He possesses a moderate punch and a decent gas tank, but that's IT. Very low on boxing skills, pretty slow, and suspect chin.
For a guy like Golovkin (who is a superior boxer, isn't going to be troubled by Adama's level of power and will time him effortlessly and can definitely hurt him) - easy work.
