    Very impressive for a puncher. I still prefer older G though, who developed a more matured style.

    Yeah, I remember Ouma as he hit the scene. I liked him. He was very tough and persistent. I had forgotten how tough this fight was for Golovkin. You could tell that there were times when Golovkin was very uncomfortable and appeared to be in some trouble.

    It was that southpaw inside fighting style, GGG just got sucked into it. Ouma had alot of traps, which explains why Taylor didn't want to lay inside and trade with this trickster.

    I think he was already getting pretty smooth with the Sanchez destruct and destroy style at this point, but maybe he was jetlagged, lack of sleep, everything going wrong and he just wanted to go out and blast this guy out, technique be da****, but he just wouldn't go. I'm sure Ouma was far trickier and durable than GGG expected.
