Gennadiy Golovkin is the IBF world middleweight champion, who has been considered the long-time boogeyman of the division, dominating 160-pound boxers with his relentless, forward-fighting style.
The 2004 Olympic gold medalist, representing Kazakhstan, has etched a record of 39-1-1, although the sole loss and draw against Canelo Alvarez remain controversial. Most boxing pundits thought GGG defeated Alvarez comfortably back in September 2017, but judge Adalaide Byrd's outrageous scorecard of 118-110 paved the way for their initial meeting to end in a draw.
Some critics and fans alike also thought that Golovkin did enough to have his hand raised in their rematch in September 2018, but Canelo switching up his strategy and walking down his rival gave him the majority decision and the WBA (Super) and WBC middleweight world titles.
