    To mix it up, here are utterly dominant wins over very good opponents not necessarily all champions. This can also show how good a fighter is. And it gives a better idea of Golovkin in his prime because fights from Jacobs on people were beginning to mention him losing an edge.

    1. Canelo I, dominant win
    2. Lemieux, destructive win over a guy considered highly dangerous at the time. Seems Team Canelo avoided him and even at the time of the Saunders fight many were picking Saunders, an elite boxer, to get KO'd.
    3. Macklin, devastating win over a very good fighter who had very close fights with champs.
    4. Murray, destructive win over a guy never stopped, who like Macklin had had very close fights, possible robberies, with champs.
    5. Geale, demolition on a former champ. People cite the Cotto fight without understanding Geale was drained to 157.

    Honorary destruction: Brook


    Now people will pretend that 2-5 were never much good, or show post Golovkin records. At the time they were not post prime and no other top fighters destroyed them like Golovkin in this period.

    Brook is a natural middleweight fighting at welter. He comes down from 190 lbs.

    #1 The first Canelo fight, l also believe GGG won the 2nd as well, but i'll just mention the fiirst.
    #2 Danny Jacobs, a clear competitive win over the 2nd best middleweight in the world, head and shoulders above the rest.
    #3 Sergiy Derevyanchenko, he had a 390 -10 amature record, he defeated Oleksandr Gvozdyk and Oleksandr Usyk in Amature competition, also had a 23- 1 record in the world series of boxing competition, before turning pro.Going into Golovkin fight he had one razor close loss to Danny Jacobs and was ranked #6 by Ring and #3 by the Transnational boxing rankings. GGG won a razor close UD.
    #4 Kell Brook, at the time Kell was ranked #1 by the ring in a stacked welterweight division after defeating Shawn Porter for the title and a top 10 PFP fighter in some publications. KO via white flag and broken eye socket.
    #5 David Lemieux, New IBF champ ranked #4 by the ring with explosive power in each fist, gets demoralized and stopped in 8 rounds.
    This is just the tip of the iceberg. When GGG first came to the USA ,The ring magazine top 10 was loaded with future Golovkin victims. GGG destroyed any of them that dared get in the ring with him.Complete destruction of many Ring mag top 10 fighters,dominating the division. Later revisionist historians would call these guys bums because of how dominant the elite Champion was.At 37 almost 38 arguably hasn't lost a pro fight yet.

    Personally I agree with you on that point I feel like the 118 card was bs and feel like really that's where the outrage is, if the fight was scored 7-5/6-6/5-7 draw then no one would argue

    Its his fault for coming from a more isolated country in the boxing world ?
    Its his fault that he wasn't born in USA ?
    Its his fault that promoters rarely pick up eastern european fighters compared to the americans?

    His team sucked yes, but he didn't have many options on what team he could choose.

    Was Pacquiao born in the USA?. What about Lomachenko, Rigondeaux, Jirov, Martinez... and endless other examples out there. He should have used his garbage team early on till he made some sort of noise, then immediately dump them for others. That's what all fighters that want to reach the top do. Then again, it did prove that he never needed to change his team. He made good money fighting bums all his career. He didn't leave much for legacy behind, but he did make good enough money in the process regardless.

    Dude when you say you will fight anybody within 3 divisions then make excuses and refuse to make concessions when called out that is on you

    Golovkin has had plenty of opportunities since coming to the U.S. WTF are you talking about. He had the backing of HBO full force, and now the backing of DAZN full force, but he chose to fight the opponents he did because he was ALWAYS WAITING on the easy money.

    Had he made concessions like most boxing stars he would have a legacy worth remembering, but instead he just talked a BIG game but never was willing to back it up.

    Except those big opportunities came when Golovkin started declining. When he was peak and dangerous, no big name wanted to do anything with him and that includes your boy Alvarez.
