Default Re: Lee, Macklin, Barker, Murray - Who do you give the best chance Vs Golovkin?

Lee and Barker would probably be using the same tactics here. Not sure about Murray though. I need to see more of Murray tbh.
I'd say Macklin expends far too much energy as well with his come forward style which really would suit to GGG down to the ground.

Although he hasn't been tested properly, I would bet he'd stop any of those 4 fighters. Barker would last longest as he is cagiest and would have the height advantage but imo they all get stopped.
