Default Golovkin hand speed

Watching his recent video of his fights. Anyone noticed his hand speed is better on the inside. Elite level?

He doesn't have exceptionaly fast hands, not great punch selection.
His power is overwhelming though, but the way Rosado was taking it, when he couldn't handle Angulo's power does give me questions.

GGG power is very dangerous for 154-160 pound weight class but from what I saw he has some improving to do.

Rosado was mostly on the backfoot, moving away from the punches. Against Angulo he traded and even moved in some of the shots. This makes a huge difference.

I thought he looked faster against Rosado than he has in other fights, its one thing I was actually impressed with. Certainly not elite though.

It ranges from average to above average. It's his power and punch placement that make him a big threat offensively though, not his handspeed.

On a side note, I have no idea why he uses Grant gloves. Does he get paid to use them or something? If he had hand problems or used his gloves to parry shots, it'd make more sense to me. As is, considering his style, wouldn't it make more sense to use Cleto Reyes or Everlast gloves?

Apparently he was only a part time boxer before and that makes a huge difference. You can take Salido as an example. He was KOed a lot of times early in his career and attributed it to the fact that he didn't know how to properly eat and prepare for fights. I think that Rosado chin is pretty good as I think about Golovkin power. Golovkins real problem IMAO is that he is so freaking open for the uppercut he has to work on that!

average handspeed for a top tier MW, nothing like Martinez, or Pirog/Gaele for that matter.
