This week’s panellists were asked for their thoughts on the career of Gennadiy Golovkin, the one-time scourge of the middleweight division who now appears to have reached the end of the road

Wayne Alexander (Former European super-welterweight champion)

He will be remembered as one of the best and most exciting-to-watch middleweights of his generation; a future Hall-of-Famer with an all-action style and decent power. He won multiple title fights against top opponents from 2014 to 2018 and made most of them look easy. His only defeat was against another future Hall-of-Famer in Canelo Álvarez, with their trilogy both very entertaining and very controversial. Most people think he at least won one of their contests.

Tyrone McKenna (Super-lightweight contender)

“Triple G” will always be remembered as one of the hardest-hitting middleweights with an entertaining style. When you tuned into a Triple G fight you knew it wasn’t going to be boring. He stalked his opponents and threw devastating hooks from first to last bell. He never dodged any fighter. He’s had an unbelievable career.

Dave Allen (Heavyweight contender)

I will remember him as one of the best middleweights of all time. I don’t think we even saw the best of him, but he was still a fantastic all-rounder and his boxing was both brutal and beautiful in equal measure.

Jason Cunningham (European super-bantamweight champion)

A devastating puncher. Unfortunately, and probably due to this, he was an avoided fighter. Still, he reached the pinnacle of the sport and, financially, has come out a winner.
