It goes without saying that Gennady Golovkin, better known as GGG, is one of the finest boxers of all times.

But what would happen if he locks horns with a heavyweight?

Here’s what happened when he bumped into American heavyweight Malik Scott at a California gym…

Clearly, GGG gave a tough time to Scott during their wrestling-like meeting out there.

And for those unaware, Scott – although inactive since 2016 – fought guys like Deontay Wilder, Luis Ortiz and Dereck Chisora (the only fights he lost as a professional).

After all, renowned cruiserweight Murat Gassiev once compared GGG’s power to not just that of the heavyweights, but also went on to say he punches harder than them.

Meanwhile, GGG hasn’t fought since being inflicted with the first defeat of his professional career by arch-rival Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez in September last year.

In what was a rematch between the duo, Canelo pulled off a majority decision win in what looked like a close contest.

Many, however, continue to believe GGG had easily won the first fight against Canelo in September 2017, which was adjudged a draw.

Although his next fight isn’t confirmed yet, GGG (38-1-1) could face American prospect Brandon Adams (21-2-0) in June.
