GGG is Unsure about a Rematch with Canelo

Gennady Golovkin vs. Vanes Martirosyan Odds 5/3/18 Who Do Oddsmakers Favor?

Evan Young (boxing sharp): "It does appear that Golovkin has looked more human than robot as of late but he still performed at a high level against Danny Jacobs (W12) and Canelo Alvarez (Controversial Draw)". With AP Photos.Gennady Golovkin meant to fight a lucrative rematch with Canelo Alvarez on Cinco de Mayo weekend.

Critics, though, have pointed out that in his four biggest fights - two against Erislandy Lara and one each against Jermell Charlo and Demetrius Andrade - Martirosyan is 0-3-1.

There is also some historical significance to this bout, as Golovkin will be looking to tie Benard Hopkins' record of 20 consecutive Middleweight title defenses.

To say Golovkin needs to beat Martirosyan by stoppage to reconstruct his image as the alpha fighter once again in the middleweight division is an understatement. And he just may get that opportunity due to Martirosyan's fighting tendencies and style and the fact that although he's never been stopped, he has been down three times.

"We can't wait", he said. Ironically they're the only times he lost.

Historic victory for Lib Dems as they take control in South Cambridgeshire
In 2014, the party made significant gains but at the time of writing, they'd lost over 120 seats, clinging on to three. Local elections are often, unsurprisingly, about local issues - think bin collection and potholes rather than Brexit.

"I'm not going in there like I have nothing to lose, because I have everything to lose, man", Martirosyan told Yahoo Sports. They don't go all out because they're scared of the power. I want to have as many fights as possible. The first day I showed up at his gym, he had gone the day before to Manila to train [Manny] Pacquiao and he left with no notice to me. If I do get hit by a truck, I'll give him his credit. "Everything is clicking and I think you'll see the best version of me".

If Martirosyan is true to his words, that plays directly into what GGG would relish. When we got the call for the fight they asked me if I could be 176 (pounds a few days later) and I weighed in that day at 174 or 175 (for a WBC weight check). I see GGG wearing Vanes down and securing a nice bedtime story before the 10th round.

Martirosyan says he's going to take the fight to Golovkin. The panel isn't wavering and is picking GGG to win by a 9-0 margin. But saying it and doing it are worlds apart and Martirosyan hasn't won by stoppage since June of 2013. The two originally were scheduled for a rematch Sunday, Australian time. Conversely, Martirosyan isn't much of a puncher unless his feet are planted which is an unlikely to happen against the physically stronger Golovkin. Or, will Martirosyan hand him his first loss? There were three different fights that fell out, and Don King had chronicled that he was ready to fight the opponents. He has a lot of good experience and has fought a lot of good boxers.

If not Alvarez, then British southpaw Billy Joe Saunders, whose World Boxing Organization middleweight crown is the only one not held by Golovkin, and Ukraine's Sergiy Derevyanchenko, Golovkin's mandatory next International Boxing Federation challenger, would be likely next rivals.
