I'd say they're on par with one another. Spada loss to two close ones to Zbik in Germany and another to Barker in the UK. Spada was the runner up option to Martin Murray for Martinez. But coming off a TKO to Sturm doesn't make for an ideal opponent in a Golovkin fight.
At any rate, expectations for the level of this opponent should probably be kept fairly low given that there'll be no HBO money and that it's in France. For now I'd be happy to see GGG go rounds with someone who's not going to run.
