Default GGG fans, tell me whats supposed to impress me about Golovkin?

I keep hearing how he's this monster who everyone's afraid of who beats up heavyweights in sparring, yet

He goes life and death wih Ouma

And gets pizza faced by a smaller Friday night fight level fighter in Rosado who Angulo an average fighter destroyed in 2


Good jab, decent power, calm, places punches well, really good at cutting off the ring, BUT, no head movement, poor defense, little athleticism, slow and not particularly active.


So explain to me how Martinez wouldnt take his head off or how he wouldnt be at best even odds against most of the ther other top middleweights?

Sparring stories. Those are normally a better indicator of how good a guy is than anything he shows in an actual fight.

Is it me or do only these #TMT guys hate on Golovkin?

Just appreciate him for what he is, mate. Gennady has the casuals excited and shines good light on our sport.

Not necessarily, it's still boxing. Golovkin proved he was good enough to step in and beat Andre Dirrell, before the Abraham fiasco

The only legitmate ciritcism you can have of GGG is his lack of head movement (his defense is still fairly solid, and he has subtle moves in his defensive arsenal), and the fact that he can be a bit of a plodder. Athleticism is a vague as shit criticism. And about his lack of speed, when you can time your shots and counter punch as well as he can you don't need it. He seems to have a solid enough chin from what ive seen of him and his power is more than decent.

Pizza faced? He had a slight bruise on his face nothing more. I reckon your talking shit for the most part man, because the majority of people are swinging off Golovkin's nuts now.

In saying that Martinez has all the tools needed to beat him, and id prick him to outbox him, using his speed, angles and lateral movement.

Maybe people were confused since GGG was drenched in Rosado's blood.

So if GGG is so slow and unathletic then how did he win an amateur fight against Dirrell? An amateur fight would obviously suit the faster, more athletic fighter wouldn't it?
Timing and power, that's what GGG has that is impressive. Rosado was very slippery and defensive, he fought a very cautious fight and all GGG could really land flush was the jab. Due to Rosado's lack of offence GGG had to neglect his defence to allow more opportunities for counter punches. That's why GGG caught a couple of shots to the face. When you have a guy in there whose primary objective is to survive then anyone can look bad. Considering GGG couldn't land much other than the jab I'd say he did a pretty good job of cutting up Rosado and stopping him in 7 rounds.
Consider what JCCjr managed to do to Martinez in round 12, Golovkin is better in every aspect than JCCjr (apart from maybe chin?) so I don't see why you'd dismiss his chances against Martinez.
