I think Macklin would be an interesting test.

He's slowly heading for that level of opponent.

Qullin is exciting but would be killed by GGG.

Qullin dropped N'dam about 68 times and couldn't end the fight,even got caught himself and wobbled.

Whaaaat?

Those are guys you fight after getting KTFO...

Why is the bar so low for GGG...??

You're treating him like a 19 year old prospect


GGG is 30 years old.....he doesn't have time to **** around with guys like that...

Why not Martinez?????

He should fight a top guy in his own shitty division

What do you mean, Macklin is finally ready to accept the GG fight, on 3rd try?

If everyone in the MW division is tied up now, Lee can be a good opponent for GGG. What ever happened to Lee anyways, who is trainning him now? GGG needs more exposure in the US. The hyping is already been done by his nuthuggers on every damn boxing forum and plus you have the help of HBO hyping him up too, so that should help him get notice a bit quicker.

You also have McEwan, Peter Manfredo, Sergio Mora, Lemieux, Demitrius Andrade, Sam Soliman, Barker, Brian Vera, Bursak, even Sakio Bika at either a catchweight or something....they are not that high caliber fights but fights that will keep him busy and back on HBO soon.

Lee is not gonna take that fight on the back of Chavez, he's trying to rebuild. Last I know he was back in the UK, working with Booth (?).

Of those guys you mention Andrade and Bika are the only interesting ones. Highly doubt Andrade will pick that road though, he's headlining his first shobox and going for a title at 154 maybe later this year.

In terms of what's actually possible

- Pirog and Geale are probably the only top MW's who may potentially fight him this year.

- Maybe a Abraham fight would be a unlikely random possability?

- Martinez, Chavez, Quillin, N'dam, Sturm won't happen.

- In between those maybe Macklin, Lee, Bursak, Murray or a similar level contender are the best hope.

Macklin would be a good next fight for GGG in the Spring and I think HBO may push for this, seeing as how they've featured Macklin a good few times and he looked like a monster in his last fight. It would sell in NYC.

Hopefully after Macklin he can push on to fights with Pirog and Geale towards the end of the year.

I think the reason Rosado was able to stay up so long was because he was always on the move and not taking the punches full on.
