Preview –

This match may appear as pretty much one sided. But our underdog Monroe Jr explained why it might not be so. According to him – Golovkin has been seen to take hits from southpaw and he being a southpaw gives him the advantage. He also added, Golovkin is known for his monster Right but his own style is more defensive than offensive. He would like to hit and not get hit. This strategy might be the best for him to win this match. While we can’t say that Monroe said anything that is not true but that does not change the fact that he is the underdog here despite the home man.

Golovkin on the other hand is looking for his 20th consecutive KO in this match. I think this basically tells why he is the favorite. Although Monroe explained his advantages in this match himself but Golovkin is silent. So, it’s up to us to show why we keep him as the favorites. Golovkin is a monster. A man who got Olympique medal when he was a rookie must know how to adapt to many fighting style. And the southpaw that managed to hit him, lost to him terribly. The real asset for him is his monster strength. Left hook combined with his power right. How long can Monroe keep avoiding it? He won’t need to hit him a 100 times to get results, with 10 hits he can slow down Monroe and then it’s a easy match for him. Due to these reasons, Golovkin is the favorite here.


Prediction –

We predict that Golovkin will win this match and he might be looking at his 20th back to back KO.
