Gennady Golovkin defends his WBA Middleweight title on November 2 at Madison Square Garden against Brooklyn’s own Curtis Stevens.Sevens represents a significant danger to Golovkin’s undefeated record with his massive power.Matthew Macklin has power and is a decent name but when he fought Golovkin in his last fight he was coming off losing two of his last three fights against Sergio Martinez and Felix Sturm.Curtis Stevens is on top of his game and coming off an impressive KO win against Saul Roman.Steven’s confidence is sky high right now.It is the perfect time for him to fight Golovkin!
Nobody will dispute Golovkin’s impressive power and skill.He reminds me a bit of Sergio Martinez in that he can hit with power from every angle including awkward ones.Golovkin’s power is no joke.But neither is Stevens.Stevens power is just as notable as Golovkin.It will be interesting to see who stays standing if one of these power shots land clean.Hopefully Stevens can bring the title back to Brooklyn!
