Technically Cotto is even though GGG is the best.

That should tell you all you need to know.
They aren't going to put Tim Bradley in with a middleweight, much less the best middleweight in the world.
The "lineal title" argument is just a cop out in this situation. People need to use their brains. Golovkin is the best at 160.

I think if I were a 160 rated boxer I would avoid GGG like the plague.
I know he hasn't had the marquee fights yet, but they coming and someone's going to risk real bodily injury. Remember the look on Curtis Stevens face? He was about to cry, kept looking at his corner and luckily for him there was only 13 sec. left in the round.
Geale, Thank God, couldn't stand, otherwise his young family may not have had a father
I'm on the bandwagon.
Huge punch- power in both hands
Great chin- Froch may crack, but I'll bet he's still standing.
Doesn't seem to cut-always an issue with white fighters

I think before the Geale fight there was still genuine question marks, but cutting through him 8th such fashion, no MW is gonna be a favourite over him.

I still think if cotto v canelo is next then the winner there deserves to be number 1. Any other fight by cotto is conceding has right to top spot.

Think cotto wants no piece of GGG so far..

Cotto is the champ and therefor number 1, however like most on here I believe that GGG would probably beat him.
There is no way that Cotto will be the reason the fight doesn't come off, if it doesn't happen it will be TV and promotional issues. Cotto is too brave for his own good.

I'm going for Golovkin. Since Macklin he will have been favoured over anyone else. He looked dominant at a high level and Martinez had begun his decline.

I'm still a bit cautious with it because if cotto faces canelo that would be fine for a lineal champ and the winner would be better regarded than Golovkin for me.
