about

No pound-for-pound list is complete without Kazakhstan’s two-time World Middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin.

Affectionately known as ‘GGG’, Golovkin is a fan favorite thanks to his ferocious punching and granite chin, a combination that has made him a must-watch global star.

GGG turned pro in May 2006 after a stellar amateur career, and his pro career to date reads like a who’s who of the top names at 160lbs, winning WBA strap in August 2010 and beating the likes of Marco Antonio Rubio, Kell Brook, Matthew Macklin, Martin Murray and Daniel Jacobs.

In September 2017, GGG and Canelo Alvarez fought for Middleweight supremacy in Las Vegas, and the pair couldn’t be split. The Mexican won the return a year later by the finest margin, and also edged their trilogy bout up at 168 in September 2022.

GGG next move is yet to be decided but he currently holds the IBF and IBO World Middleweight titles after stopping Ryota Murata in a war out in Japan in April 2022. Regarded as an all-time great in the Middleweight division, the iconic Kazakhstan boxer will most likely drop back down to 160lb for his next contest.
