    I believe a large key to GGG's success was due to fighting 3 - 4 times a year, I think he was very good as a super tough pressure fighter, great balance, timing chin & ofcourse power ... but that time has passed...

    It was a weird hobby of mine a long time ago. I spent less than 10 grand. Most of them are limited editions that have appreciated a lot in value. So it was actual an investment that has doubled. Even the regular edition pens have doubled in retail price.

    Here's one limited edition sample:

    Montblanc Marcel Proust Ballpoint Pen Limited Edition 28655, 1999 Writers Series, 02483

    Upon release, I bought 3 of them at $375.

    I think the fight should happen now. Its true that Munguia has shown evolution and progression, but I dont think he has a big ceiling. He is pretty close to the best of his skills and talent. And Golovkin is a veteran who might be out sooner than later. The fight should happen. Munguia is a much better fight for GGG than Murata.

    He signed a deal with DAZN worth over $100m but I believe it has a time limit.

    I think this is DAZN trying to stretch out that time limit so they don't have to pay him silly money for fighting palookas.

    Don't buy Montblanc. If you have to spend money buy a Japanese gold nibbed pen: Sailor/Pilot/Platinum.

    Montblanc used to be a stationery manufacturer once. Now the brand is owned by a luxury conglomerate that overcharges and underdelivers. I have been gifted limited edition MB pens with poor nibs that do not write out of the box. If you are going to buy a Pelikan/Montblanc/Visconti etc. which cost over 500 USD then you must be ready to send it to a nibmeister.

    IMO if you want a quality fountainpen that writes wonderfuly then a Pilot Custom 823 (Fine nib) is a good choice. It is costly but nowhere close to a MB, and it writes beautifully.

    Get that along with a bottle of Iroshizuku Kon-Peki ink.

    I have sold every modern Montblanc and Pelikan in my shelf, only vintages remain.

    If you must buy a Montblanc check the used ones. You will probably find pens in excellent condition that go for half the retail price of a new one.

    I used to be an avid fountain pen collector and am quite shocked that you've experienced problems with Montblanc nibs. I struggle to see how the nibs won't write out of the box. This usually happens when someone has abused the nib. Perhaps the previous owner was pressing down very hard and messed with the alignment of the tines interrupting the ink flow. I'd like to hear more.

    Yes, Montblanc is owned by a big luxury group, but that group also owns IWC and A. Lange et Sohne. I've collected everything from Delta to Montegrappa to Pelikan, Sailor, Parker, Cross, and more. I think Montblanc nibs are the smoothest.

    Are you a pen dealer?

    I believe Munguia is as ready as he will ever be, GGG is going to turn 40. There comes a time when the age difference is just too much. It would be Munguia's work rate and durability vs the effectiveness of GGG'S accurate sledgehammer shots. I would say its a 50/50 fight if Munguia can handle the power, which i am assuming he can, if he can't then it would be a late round stoppage for GGG. Which would be a great win.
