    Gennady Golovkin-Martin Murray Review

    in Sports

    HBO World Championship Boxing was live from the Salle des Étoiles in Monte Carlo, Monaco as Gennady “GGG” Golovkin was set to defend his WBA and interim WBC middleweight titles against Martin Murray in a bout scheduled for 12 rounds. Murray was supposed to test Golovkin and finally provide a test for “GGG,” who has run through his opposition—riding an 18 KO/TKO streak heading into the fight.


    Last time Murray was headlining an HBO WCB broadcast he was in Argentina, and he was on the bad side of a controversial unanimous decision loss to the lineal middleweight champion, at the time, Sergio Martinez. Since the loss, Murray has won 4 in a row, albeit against softer opposition.


    Still, Murray appeared like a legitimate test for Golovkin or at least the best fighter heading into a bout with actual momentum.


    Golovkin started out the fight in his typical fashion and didn’t rush in there, especially when you consider the way other fighters with the same kind of power typically do. Instead, Golovkin was methodical and tried gauging openings opposed to jumping on his opponent.


    Murray utilized a mixture of punches, but mostly stayed in the same style. Still, Murray found success in brief spots with jabs to the body and overhands, nothing landed flush, and it was always one shot at a time.


    Golovkin finally landed a decent shot to close out the first round; it was enough to show Murray his power and win him a slow round.


    The second round was much better for Murray, who made it a point to get off first and disrupt Golovkin’s approach. Murray won the round by keeping “GGG” from sitting down on his punches and landing more than one shot at a time.

    Gennady Golovkin vs Marco Antonio Rubio Recap

    in Sports

    How far would you travel to see a boxer you enjoyed watching ply his craft? This past Saturday, attending Gennady Golovkin's easy destruction of Marco Antonio Rubio in Carson, CA, I heard everything from Northern California, to Iowa, to Connecticut. If there were any question as to the budding stardom of "GGG," many remarked that this past weekend's success was the answer. This week on TQBR Radio, James Foley of Bad Left Hook and The Queensberry Rules' Patrick Connor pour accolades all over the Killer from Kazakhstan. But also on the agenda: Nicholas' Walters handling of Nonito Donaire on the undercard, as well as various other news pickings and musings. Thanks for tuning in!

Consider yourself warned: there will probably be only small amounts of objectivity here. Thanks for tuning in!

    Gennady Golovkin vs Marco Antonio Rubio Preview

    in Sports

    It's happening again. Gennady Golovkin has vowed to rid the world of evil, and the only man standing in his way is "El Veneno" Marco Antonio Rubio. Okay, so there are a lot of men standing in his way aside from Rubio, but the Mexican veteran is the only heart pure enough, the only balls big enough, to accept the GGG Challenge. (That's hyperbole.) James Foley of Bad Left Hook and The Queensberry Rules' Patrick Connor are proud to be overly kind to Golovkin once more while previewing a fight of his. Also up this week: recaps of Jermain Taylor vs Sam Soliman and Cornelius Bundrage vs Carlos Molina, and a preview of Nonito Donaire vs Nicholas Walters, plus other stuff. Thanks for tuning in!

    Gennady Golovkin vs Daniel Geale Recap

    in Sports

    Fat Man. Little Boy. Chernobyl. Three Mile Island. Bikini Atoll. Gennady Golovkin's ledger. All have been vaporized and forever tainted. What is it, exactly, that Golovkin carries in his fists? Dynamite? Adamantium? Anvils? The Ghost of Tom Joad? Hyperbole aside, Golovkin is tearing through the ranks at 160 lbs. -- what you'd expect any middleweight badass with a point to prove. Golovkin's obliteration of Daniel Geale was impressive, even if Bryant Jennings' win over Mike Perez was not. This week on TQBR Radio, Bad Left Hook's James Foley and Patrick Connor of Queensberry Rules turn the GGG hype up a notch and fawn all over one of the podcast's favorite sons. Also on the agenda, a preview of Brandon Rios vs Diego Chaves and Sergey Kovalev vs Blake Caparello. Thanks for tunint in!

    Gennady Golovkin vs. Willie Monroe Jr “The Big Drama Show” Continues Review

    in Sports

    It was an energetic crowd at the Forum in LA tonight as HBO showcased a card with the two best offensive fighters in the sport of boxing. Gennady “GGG” Golovkin defended his WBA middleweight and WBC interim middleweight titles against Willie “The Mongoose” Monroe Jr.


     


    In the first round, Golovkin pursued his opponent and calculatedly unleashed his punches with bad intent. Monroe wasn’t completely shut out in the offense department, but his effective countering came far and few between. It was primarily a Golovkin round.

    Gennady Golovkin vs Daniel Geale Preview with Steve Janoski

    in Sports

    Generally when the waters near the shore of a beach recede, it means a tsunami is on its way and you need to run your ass off. This weekend, the receding waters signify the imminent arrival of one of the hardest hitting fighters in the world today, Gennady Golovkin. You should still run your ass off, however. The last minute cancelation of Tyson Fury vs. Dereck Chisora II means the boxing world will be even more dependent on Golovkin-Geale to satisfy its bloodlust. This week on TQBR Radio, Bad Left Hook's James Foley and Patrick Connor of Queensberry Rules do a comprehensive preview of Golovkin-Geale and the Bryant Jennings vs Mike Perez co-feature on HBO, and recap last weekend's card from Macau, China that featured Zou Shiming, Guillermo Rigondeaux and Brian Viloria. Joining the jealous junkies this week is boxing writer and Bad Left Hook contributor Steve Janoski. Thanks for tuning in!
