“The problem of Golovkin’s opposition then, regardless of where you fall on the matter, is unlikely to be resolved anytime soon. What supporters and critics of Golovkin alike can admit, is that without those noteworthy challenges, Golovkin’s run is beginning to lack the drama that Golovkin is said to represent. He is still developing as a draw, has never been more popular, and yet, there is a festering impatience about his career that even his staunchest defenders must admit. Even Golovkin’s catch phrases, repeated ad nauseum in the build up to his fights, have lost much of their charm.”
