Yes, the boogeyman of the Middleweight division. Gennady Golovkin is a showcase HBO fighter, he is also a champion in the division and he is declared by many as the king at Middleweight.
Unfortunately for Golovkin, as well known as he is to hardcore boxing fans and people in Europe, he does not cross that popularity over to the casual side of the fans in the United States.
If Cotto would take this fight and actually win, it would leave no doubt that he is the best Puerto Rican fighter ever to come from the island.
