Could you get to 168 lbs and KO Rocky Fielding if given 8 weeks to prepare?

    On a slightly different note, how come someone like ggg take them body shots for 12 rounds but rocky couldn’t ? Is it just conditioning or taking the shots differently ?

    The video claimed he'd been on the Ultimate Fighter, was 6-1, and in the UFC the supposed major leagues and pinnacle of mma. That's just roughly what the top level of boxing looks like in mma. In all fairness though, their wrestling is a much better than their striking. Mma is much more of a grappling sport than a striking sport.

    Rocky stood in front of him and absorbed every shot, Golovkin moved backwards out of range.

    Fielding much bigger body target too at 6'1

    To answer the OP question, no chance, Fielding was a world champion which makes him top 5 (or top 10) in his weight class globally, he would do to us what Canelo did to him inside 1 round.

    Both I think.

    Golovkin is just really strong in the midsection anyway, but, notice that he prepared for Canelo's bodywork by making sure that there's always an elbow available to pick off his liver punch with. A lot of the bodywork that looks like its landing is actually getting picked off on arms and elbows. You can't condition your liver to take punches and given that Golovkin likes the liver punch himself, he made sure he was ready for it.
