Gennady Golovkin- Boxer: Long-Armed and well proportioned at 5’10 1/2″ Gennady Golovkin is a feared puncher with great technique and durability. Deadly power is the Kazakhs best asset with a Mike Tyson-esque type of intimidation. Golovkin patiently stalks his prey using a catch and counter technique that wears down opponents. Piston like jab that his heavy and fast sets the table for the big artillery. Outstanding balance makes every punch damaging offensively and knockdowns difficult to score for opponents. Accuracy and bodypunching are some of the many highlights that make GGG ESPN2 News #1 pound-4-pound fighter. Has great poise rooted from 350+ amateur fights. Because of his calm demeanor GGG can punch with remarkable precision, especially to the body. On the downside Golovkin is not a speed demon and like most great talents he can be overconfident. Stamina has been a question mark with the puncher who tends to burn himself out trying to go for the kill. Tucks his chin superbly with Jack Dempsey like head placement but moves his melon infrequently. Does not have a signature win over a pound-4-pound level opponent on his ledger.
