Middleweight star Gennady Golovkin has a very real problem: he is fast running out of credible opposition. In fact, Golovkin might have already ran out of suitable opponents. Making ruthlessly short work of Dominic Wade last night for his 35th pro win and his 16th title retention, Golovkin won without moving out of first gear. Golovkin was in such command he even dropped his hands and allowed Wade to hit him. Even this was unable … Read Article

Feared middleweight Gennady Golovkin isn’t really much of a trash-talker. No, the lethal talent with the choirboy looks, who refers to his opposition, those opponents he has respect for, as “good boys,” is more at home with a smile and a good word, not a snarl and an insult. So, it is perhaps due to his growing frustration at not being able – so far – to nail down a fight with Mexican star Canelo … Read Article

Although Amir Khan has his critics, who suggest the former 140-pound king is not the great talent he himself believes he is, no-one can deny how Khan has always sought the big fights (he was absolutely desperate to get a Floyd Mayweather Junior and/or a Manny Pacquiao into the ring). Nor can anyone say Khan is not involved in exciting fight after exciting fight. And, for a fighter some more vocal critics have called “chinny,” … Read Article
