“The fight between Gennady Golovkin and Marco Antonio Rubio at the StubHub Center in Carson, California this Saturday leaves much to be desired. If we are to believe his earnest interviews, where, in improving English, he delivers soundbites that provide him seemingly as much traction among enthusiasts as his fists do—and certainly more than his opposition does—even Golovkin himself will find his next victim unsatisfying. Golovkin wants big names and big shows, but Rubio is yet another sanctioned slaughter in a year blighted by mismatches. We should be honest about that.”
