Gennady Golovkin has been dominating the sport of boxing for more than a decade. Since his pro debut in May 2006, “GGG” has gone a perfect 37-0 with a ridiculous 33 KOs. Golovkin’s combination of precision punching, power and footwork have made him one of the best boxers of this generation.
Like many top-notch pro boxers, Golovkin started as one of the best amateurs in the world. He represented Kazakhstan in multiple international events including the 2004 Athens Olympics, in which he won a silver medal. Once turning pro, it only took Golovkin four years to claim his first major title and after more than 10 years in the sport, he holds basically every significant middleweight title on the planet.
Next up for Golovkin is a superfight with Saul “Canelo” Alvarez. Both men are among the best pound-for-pound fighters on the planet and fight an aggressive style. GGG found himself as a small betting fave shortly after the fight announcement, something that changed drastically compared to hypothetical lines posted a year earlier.
