The reason for Golovkin being quite is because he is more likely considering retirement

    GGG is he smart he is going to take his time with his family to think this over take no notice of the crazy numbers being thrown at him by networks.....

    It would be a good decision for him to retire golovkin is going to be 37 soon has had over 500 am fights

    He has made lots of money from the canelo fights I feel he should call it quits

    He still has more then enough to carry on but he is not the same fighter he is declined

    Not sure what the hell he is doing, but certainly not any favors to his stature as a top level block buster. Maybe he is just waiting for Canelo III to cash out.....waiting for Canelo to get older.....?

    I happen to agree with the OP.

    Golovkin has made more than enough money to live in luxury more the rest of his life and some over, he's a national hero in Kazakhstan, and he's got a family. I suspect he is seriously contemplating retirement. There's no point carrying on if his heart is not in it.

    Golovkin is old as hell. And we know that networks are throwing gobs of money his way. He's taking his time because he knows his value and those offers will only increase.

    I keep saying this, but look at Bryce Harper and Manny Machado. Spring has already started and both guys have yet to sign with a team. Harper is expected to sign the biggest contract in sports history ($400 million is the number being thrown around) and Machado is expected to make $250 million.

    He's only 36.

    Mayweather was 38 when he beat Pacman. GGG got two tries at Canelo when he was 35/36 and couldn't even win once.

    Floyd at 38 dominates Pacman and Pacmam is greater than Canelo , right?

    Just goes you show you how great that Mayweather guy is. :smileysex1:

    Golovkin had close to 400 amateur fights. Floyd had about 90.

    In the eyes of the boxing public, Golovkin is 2-0 against Canelo (who was juiced the first time).

    Golovkin was fighting 3X a year for awhile. Floyd took numerous vacations/retirements.

    Floyd was bigger than Pacquiao and Pacquiao had been brutally iced and no one even expected to see him in the ring again after 2012. Canelo, while shorter, is the bigger man than Golovkin (hence his fighting Chavez at 165 and Rocky at 168). Canelo is prime. Pac was nearly shot. Why didn't Floyd destroy Pac?

    Golovkin is a clean athlete. Floyd was a heavy PED user.

    :deal:

    :stop::stop:Floyd had 48 professional fights and had been in 12 rounders since the year 1998. His spars were tougher than GGGs amateur fights.

    Not only was Floyd older than GGG when he pasted Pacquaio , he was also a pro for longer and had way more miles on his clock.

    In boxing years GGG was 31/32 when he fought Canelo because he fought cream puffs in bum city all his career. :sisi1 .. He had no tough fights therefore he had very little wear n tear.

    Golovkin was the best he could be when he fought a roid deprived shrunken down inactive Canelo with one knee and he still lost!!!

    The Pacman is FOUR years olde than GGG and he's beating guys that would be considered best wins for Golovkin.. LOL!!!

    Floyd beat a 21 year old green canelo and drained him LOOL at his lowest weight he did for yeaaaaaars

    Floyd style is not like GGG who ages quicker Floyd is a defensive fighter even Hopkins went up to 50 plus with that style

    Golovkin fought a canelo 27 years old one at 160 and in the first fight beat him clearly but was robbed and he didn't just run and try to outbox him he walked him down and hurt him countless times BIG BIG difference

    It's not that black and white. Yes fighters who fight face first tend to have a shorter prime and yes, fighters who are don't get hit as much tend to have longer primes.

    With that said, Floyd had been in more wars than Golovkin. Take a look at Floyd's career and you'll see him battling it out against very good champions like Jesus Chavez, Ricky Hatton, Miguel Cotto, Oscar De La Hoya and other fights where he had his chin and wits tested. The caliber of opposition between Floyd and Gennady differs significantly in quality.

    While Golovkin has the style to absorb more damage which could result in a shortening a fighters prime, his opposition was very to extremely weak and didn't absorb much damage.

    Another interesting thing to consider is that it is common knowledge that power is the last thing to go away, while reflexes is usually the first thing to go away.

    Mayweather not only had more wars, took more damage, had a longer pro career, fought higher level of opposition, but relied on a natural talent like reflexes that is hard to maintain as you age.

    Golovkin's style is mostly reliant on KO his opponents. He has fought far less rounds, against lower quality opposition and never really tested himself. He also started fighting Professional at age 24 and was carefully matched the vast majority of his career.

    Yeah but what you fail to realize is Canelo turned pro at 15 and had 43 pro fights by the time he fought Mayweather. He had just beaten Trout who had upset Cotto.
    He was a champ and rated on the p4p list.
    That kinda means he was far from being green , k?

    He was a p4p rated operator and Mayweather who was way smaller , older and shotter than Golovkin beat him in a near shut out.

    Canelo is greater than Golovkin , thats why he beat him. :rambo1::shocked:

    He might made money but he's legacy sucks his best win is Jacob's in a very close fight, now that 160 is hot and loaded he went into hiding mode

    Ggg probably cares more about money than legacy
