Gennady Golovkin vs. Martin Murray

Feb. 21, Monte Carlo, Monaco
By Peter Lim

The question here is not if but when Gennady Golovkin (31-0, 28 KOs) will end the fight inside the distance. The answer lies somewhere between how patient the sharpshooting Kazakh will be and whether Martin Murray (29-1-1, 12 KOs) will decide to go for broke or fight on survival mode the moment he's buzzed by one of Golovkin's missiles.

It will take a round or two for Golovkin, 32, to figure out the Englishman hasn't the firepower to hurt him, effortlessly walk through Murray's punches and plaster him with his signature pinpoint detonations to the upstairs and down. Murray, 32, will sneak in a few solid body punches and counter rights but is eventually flattened by either a double left hook or a straight right he never sees coming in the fifth round.   


Martin Murray has a torpedo-proof chin.
