    GGG fans: Golovkin is a small MW, he can't possibly move up to SMW to fight Ward
    Also GGG fans: Golovkin is to big too strong for a top 5 ATG like Duran.

    No, Hopkins was really good at making their bodies and face into pulp.

    I feel like GGG should have fought Ward. Cotto and Martinez were ducking him and Pirog injured his back.

    And yes, G tosses Duran. Way too much size and strength advantage.

    Cotto and Martinez were doing the same exact ****ing thing Golovkin is doing, avoiding the elite MW talent in hopes to cash out against Canelo...again.

    Why is it okay for you guys that GGG refused Saunders, Charlo, Andrade, and even before Derevyanchenko lost to Jacobs, and before he looked like **** against Culcay GGG refused to defend his IBF against him........ But old as Cotto and Martinez get **** for choosing the money fight over Golovkin?

    Pacquiao, Canelo, RJJ and many ATG fighters have been successful at beating bigger less skilled fighters.

    Considering GGGs skill level, and considering Duran's ATG standing, Duran would be the clear and obvious favorite. FFS, small MW Derevyanchenko hurt GGG to the body and arguably beat him.

    Hagler was fighting quality GGG was not. When GGG finally fought he could not stop them which means his power is overrated.

    Since Wilder has no quality on his resume, you also believe his power is overrated, yes?

    GGG fans: Can't wait to see the Ward fight at 168!
    Ward: Muh promoter! Muh shoulder! I'm not fighting at 168!

    BJ "he'd beat us both in the same night mate" Saunders was the guy refusing HIM.
    Why didn't Canelo fight Charlo?
    Andrade, the guy that barely beat Martirosiyan, the guy GGG flatlined in 2? The guy that never fought at middle till 2018? :lol:
    :lol: BECAUSE HE WAS TRYING TO FIGHT CANELO genius. Unless you think SD is tougher than Canelo, Golovkin was looking for the harder fight. Canelo, the same guy that vacated his belt rather than fight Derevyanchenko ;)
    Money over legacy. I can get that. They both would have been obliterated by Golovkin at those times, so I can get cashing out.
    I don't fancy Duran at 160 against a prime Golovkin and neither have previous polls on the matter.

    Like shooting stupid fish in a shallow barrel... :lol: Gotta love how some of these guys pretend they were 3G fans. ASSOL for instance, says he was a big fan, but since 3G didn't step up and fight who he wanted him to fight, the only logical move is...to be a hater?? It's not just a matter of saying, "I'm done with this guy", he has to be full on hater of the guy he says he was a big fans of. WHILE ignoring the fact that 3g was in fact ducked but the top guys for years. :lol:

    Duran has virtually no chance of beating GGG, saying otherwise is ridiculous. Duran can - and probably does - go the distance, but he ain't winning. It's a lightweight vs a super-middleweight for **** sake.

    just proves my point. Top 10 and, seven, seven(7), were TKOs.

    And on all of those, it took an average of 25 shots to get the other person going.

    That's EXACTLY Haglers strength. relentless pressure, incredible engine and constant punches coming your way for 15 rds.
    NOT his power punches.
