    His career is not over yet but he looks well past his best. Do you think he has already done enough to be top 10 at 160? Top 15? Or will he need some late career big wins?

    I don't think I can put him in the top 10, top 15 for sure.

    I think you could put him top 10 tbh. The only thing against him is he turned pro too late. I followed his amateur career and I was waiting 5 years for the announcement. His chin is top 3 and his power is top 10. Great stamina too.

    top 10 without a doubt, his biggest fights were all past his prime, after a BUSY amateur career, and at an age when Hagler for example had been retired for several years.

    I'd struggle to put him in the top 10.
    15 to 20 maybe.

    His resume is lacking partially due to people dodging him.

    His signature win was against Canelo but officially he lost that fight due to dodgy judges.

    Top 15- 20.

    I've been lowballing him. Shot at the ten, probably just outside.

    Golovkin has no signature wins - unless we want to include the decision over the less than stellar Jacobs; a competitor that I like, but who also seemed to get stuck in third gear, when faced with his toughest opponents.

    I've not got him in my 20 and he mightn't even make the cut for 30.

    He might make top 20 but there's plenty of equally good candidates.

    I doubt he's top 25 unless you factor in some sort of H2H thing.
