Possible Golovkin fight

Post  captainanddew on Fri Nov 02, 2012 5:34 pm

rumor that dougie fisher and steve kim have heard and were talking about on twitter: Golovkin going to move up to 168 for a fight with Oosthuizen.


For those that don't know, Ooosthuizen has been at 168 (or higher for a few fights) his entire career. He is 6 ft 4 and a southpaw. While he hasn't faced any top fighters (neither has Golovkin for that matter) he is ranked in the top 10 at 168 by Ring Magazine.

If this ends up being more than a rumor, I will be impressed by both fighters. Not normal for a fighter to jump in weight to face a rather tall southpaw that is undefeated and ranked in the top 10 by non-biased rankings. Not normal for a top 10 ranked guy that is a prospect to face a top puncher (even if it has been displayed previously at the lower weight).

middleweight has some solid fights to be made. golovkin has quite a few good choices.

yes it does. That is why I find the possibility of him taking a fight at 168 against a very tall southpaw to be a bit out there. GG said before that he would fight anyone from 154 to 168. He might not be bullshiting.
