Default What's Golovkin's chin like ??

Everybody knows about his monstrous power but has he ever had his own chin tested? Proksa can bang a little bit himself so be interesting if he can check GGG's chin early on.

Gonna be a good fight.

Incredible according to reputation. 300+ amateur fights and never been down. I guess we won't find out for real until Proksa.

Probably pretty good... but lndeed it hasn't really been tested at the pro ranks yet, and tonight is the night we will probaly see it tested.

That said, it probably won't be able to take his own punches, but that's no problem as long as he doesn't pull a Fury.

Not often a freakish banger has the iron chin to go with it, but European fighters tend to be well schooled, don't fall in love with their power and therefore aren't susceptible to getting caught like other punchers.

Kasim Ouma caught him with some peaches, but that didn't seem to faze him.

I thought Hope stunned Proksa a couple of times. I imagine Golovkin will knock him out in the middle rounds. Proksa is too easy to hit, hasn't had a good training camp and is up against a terrific puncher.

Exactly. Terrific puncher with Tszyu like timing and footwork. The Ouma fight was a 1 off, Golovkin usually never fights like that. Don't think Sanchez realised the talent he had on his hands then. This won't end well for Proksa.
