if Sergio doesn't get carried away like against Jr, he can easily outbox GG, otherwise he gets KTFO'd

Golovkin is better than Chavez - we do all realize this?

Like, orders of magnitude better...

Technically better and a stronger puncher. But he is not as big as Chavez. It's the size and weight difference on the night that I think Martinez had a little difficulty with.

Styles make fights but I'm not sure if GGG would be able to beat Chavez. GGG has not the legs of Maravilla, and I don't see any MW nowadays standing toe to toe with Fatboy.

Anyway... Neither I see GGG beating Martinez. But who matters... this fight is not going to happen.

GGG would KO him. Sergio is past best and GGG is prime.

Sergio can certainly outbox GGG, yet for a superbly athletic boxer he's not especially difficult to hit.

I can see Sergio being up by 2-3 rounds late and getting stopped. Great fight, no doubt.

If Chavez can get you (and hurt you), Golovkin sure as shit can.

I'm going Martinez at this point. Golovkin obviously has power in both hands, an iron chin by the looks of things, good technical skills and good timing, but average handspeed and a tendency to telegraph and load up on his punches. I don't actually see him as a good composite puncher as I rarely see him put good looking combinations together and mix it up to body and head in such a way, mainly because I don't think he trusts his own hand speed. He's not your typical pressure fighter either so I'm not sure how well he could cut off the ring against somebody as quick as Martinez.

Sergio isn't hard to hit, but he has clear speed and athletic advantages here and should be able to do a similar job to what he did against Chavez. Golovkin is obviously going to be very dangerous with his power and he's technicaly skilled and not some wild swing for the fences type of KO artist, but Martinez should have enough advantages to cruise to a decision whilst enduring some hairy moments.

I'd rather see Golovkin vs Chavez first in all honesty. I think he needs a chance to prove himself first.
