    Kessler was an excellent fighter - but prime GGG was a great one, and probably too much for the Dane.

    I'll take GGG on points.

    If Golovkin had fought Ward, Froch and Calzaghe, he would not be considered better than Mikkel Kessler, I know that much. But you can't tell these EE-crazed loonies this, and they will never understand it. Curtis Stevens would make some funny faces if he had to fight the Viking too, believe me. I can assure you.

    Hard to say. GGG looks better on paper, but Kessler had the much tougher opponents. I might give the edge to Kessler.

    She was actually beautiful in younger days but the botox, plastic surgery, silicone exploded boobs and multiple tattoos ruined her attractiveness.

    I don’t doubt that! See it happen way too much nowadays. Father Time is undefeated.

    GGG clearly the better fighter but we never saw how he would deal at 168lbs. Does his power go up with him or is it diminished against bigger men, does he get manhandled by these naturally bigger men and we suddenly see Golovkin being the one backed up? Will the extra weight slow him down or effect his stamina? Plenty of guys have moved up and not looked the same.

    But if I had to pick someone I think I'd favour Golovkin but it's not a confident pick at all for the reasons listed above, I am not certain GGG has the style that translates well to moving up but I will pick skill over size.
