    160-168 sucks man. Golovkin showed enough against Clenelo to still receive the benefit of the doubt against most guys.

    Keep them gloves hanging up, but I doubt he or most could turn down some 20M payday if it was offered.

    He has a round face too, but he could get rid of the gut and chubby face pretty quickly once he starts training. The real problem is his age. I hope he stays retired.

    All you saying you wouldn’t want to see him stopped. That is so unlikely it’s laughable. Out hustled because of ring rust and age maybe

    He looked shot to pieces in his last 2 fights, legs have gone and his punches just looked a lot more stiff in the Canelo fight, his timing was gone, his last fight where he looked good, like he had something left was his fight against Szeremeta.
    I don’t think he beats any decent fighter now, not even Berlanga as said he would, I just don’t think he has anything left whatsoever.

    Lara still looks good, still has the legs and timing, I see him outpointing Golovkin at this point, although he could age overnight at any point.

    He was traveling, eating salty food, and all of that I'm sure, in general i think thats a bad shot. I saw other pictures from the same event and they didn't look that bad.

    Yeah. Golovkin is one of those rare fighters who doesn't seem to have as sharp a drop off in terms of skill/durability upon hitting his late 30s/ early 40s. If we see him fight again he will probably be more or less the same as the 3rd Clenelo fight. I think Plant or Andrade at 168 would be good fights.
