    Gennady Golovkin V. Willie Monroe from the Forum in LA on HBO tonite.
    I think I've got a little GGG in my pants.
    The last boxer I was this excited over was Andre Ward. Golovkin is a beast. Best middleweight since Hopkins and Roy Jones twenty years ago. And I think he would beat those guys. He has such heavy hands. Anvils. He said he would go down in weight to fight Mayweather - who would never take the fight.

    GGG is a monster. I think the line is like -5000.

    I'm predicting KO.

    Good fight... my daughter said, "this is way better than the one you paid $100 to watch!"

    Not great yet, wait until he fights somebody with a resume and beats him then start crowning him.

    GGG is not a monster the line of -5000 tells you that this fight is a mismatch.

    This was a fight but the sport is called boxing and the $100 match was for a boxing match and that is exactly what you received.

    He was a monster before he fought monroe. Of course, it was a mismatch with a line of -5000.

    After monroe, he has a KO streak of 20. Sounds like a monster to me.

    I would like to see him fight canelo. That would be interesting. Not sure if he would drop down though.

    Mayweather is a strategic fighter, which is boring to most people. GGG is a beast who squares up with people, and fights with power and flat footed. Mayweather's old fights were much better than how he has fought in the last 5 years or so.

    GGG weights over 170 on fight night, prob closer to 180. Mayweather weights like 150 tops on fight night. Thats a big difference. Mayweather has struggled to get up to 154, his last fight in that division was at a catch weight of 152, Mayweather still entered the ring at only 150. He is a welterweight, GGG is a middle weight. They won't fight.

    When no one wants to fight you except those with nothing to lose that makes you a monster.
