Review: 2014-10-18, pretty good fight between Gennady Golovkin and Marco Antonio Rubio: it gets three stars. The undefeated Gennady Golovkin entered this fight with a perfect boxing record of 30-0-0 (27 KOs=90%) and he is ranked as the No.1 middleweight in the world, he has already fought twice in 2014 beating Osumanu Adama (=Golovkin vs Adama) and Daniel Geale (=Golovkin vs Geale).
His opponent, Marco Antonio Rubio, has an official record of 59-6-1 (51 KOs=86%) and he entered as the No.14 in the same weight class, he suffered his last loss in 2012 when he faced then-undefeated Julio Cesar Chavez Jr (=Chavez Jr vs Rubio); since then he has won six consecutive bouts and in his last fight he beat Domenico Spada winning the interim Wbc Mw title (=Rubio vs Spada). ‘GGG’ Golovkin vs Rubio was valid for the WBA, IBO and interim WBC middleweight titles (the first two belts held by Golovkin); ‘El Veneno’ Rubio failed to make weight losing his interim Wbc belt that becomes vacant and all titles are not on the line for the Mexican boxer.
