this is a fantasy matchup i have always thought about. Dont know who wins tho
All the GGG fans answer GGG. Which would be correct.
All of the GGG haters answer McClellan. Which would be wrong.
McClellan, bhop, McCallum, or Toney all beat ggg and canelo. Easy!
Beating McClellan means making it to round 6. Golovkin and Alvarez would make it and take him apart. Even Jacobs would have a decent chance.
Exactly the same on the Canelo vs Pavlik thread...
Golovkin will win this. Too many tools, too clever a boxer, too good a chin.
GGG was a better boxer over the distance with plenty of power himself and a very good chin. Golovkin on points.
Mccellan wasn't skilled just a banger, just Like benn who beat him,neither were boxers GGG would teach them rudimentary boxing skills...
But I've said on countless occasions that I thought Pavlik could beat GGG. Whoops, there goes that angle.
Maybe if Golovkin dressed up as a dog. G-Man might find the extra motivation to get the job done. Otherwise Golovkin batters him.
McClellan can clearly punch incredibly hard maybe he can blast GGG out of there as Golovkin is easy to hit and takes a few rounds to get going but GGG's chin is very good, better than Benn's I'm sure. I see GGG struggling early as he tries and contains a McClellan throwing bombs, but he'll ride out the storm, utilise his superior skills and breaks down the GMan and stops him late.
McClellan was simply too easy to hit himself, he was all power, very little finesse. Golovkin has power but he has more than just that, his jab, the way he cuts off the ring, how he switches to head and body, he's just a more complete fighter than McCellan.
Golovkin would likely outbox Mccllelan.
Gerald was a huge 160 pound fighter with insane reach for the division he had power and speed GGG has power but better fundamentals. Whatever fighter can start to bother the other fighter with their power more wins.
Not sure what Jacobs does any better than McClellan.
McClellan was an Emanuel steward trained boxer puncher with power, speed, chin and a nasty left hook to the body.
Box and carrying power late.
