Nilson Julio Tapia - WBA title.
18 defences W one D (Saul Alvarez) before Saul Alvarez L.
GGG would have been Tapia's mando.

Who did GGG win the Middle world title from?
GGG won the Interim WBA middleweight championship after defeating Milton Nunez on 14/08/2010. He then won the full WBA Regular championship when he defeated Nilson Julio Taper in his next fight on the 16/12/2010.


Was it a vacant title when he won it?
The full WBA belt was a vacant title that came about as Felix Sturm was elevated to WBA Super Champion for his 04/09/201 fight against Giovanni Lorenz

How many successful world title defenses did GGG have before his loss to Alvarez
After winning the WBA regular championship by beating Taper, GGG defended his title 17 times between 17/06/2011 and 18/03/2017. The first 16 by KO/TKO then a UD against Daniel Jacobs for defence 17. During this time he also picked up the vacant IBO title by beating Lajuan Simon on 09/12/201.

On the 16/09/2017 GGG attempted his 18th defense but picked up the first blemish on his perfect record when he had a draw with Alvarez in their first fight. As it was a draw he retained his titles.

After the Alvarez draw, GGG completed 18 successful defenses when he beat Vanes Martirosyan on 05/05/18.

GGG would the go on the fight Alvarez a 3rd time on 15/09/2018, hoping to get to 19 successful defenses but was beaten by Majority Decision.

So in summation, GGG’s championship reign lasted from 16/12/2010 (I don’t count the interim championship) to 15/09/2018. Or 5 years, 8 months and 30 days.

After losing his titles, GGG went 405 days as not being recognised as a current world champion. Recently (05/10/2019) he beat Sergiy Derevyanchenko for the IBF and IBO middleweight championships. Both titles were vacant.

Championship reign two, 05/05/2019 - TBA

The greatest hype job of the last decade.
Fought Matt Macklin, Kassim Ouma, Saul Alvarez twice, Nobuhiro Ishida, Gabe Rosado, Daniel Geale, Martin Murray, Marco Antonio Rubio, Willie Monroe Jr, David Lemieux, Kell Brook, Danny Jacobs, Dominic Wade, Kell Brook, Vanes Martirosyan, Sergiy D.

Never been off of his feet.

17 successful defences of his WBA title.

Hard as fucking nails.

Right fucking hype job he is you stupid cunt.

The internet gives little dweebs like you magic power to say shit you know you wouldn't utter in person, so I'm just going to take you tough guy act with a grain of salt.
Anyways, If I were a Golovkin fan, I'll be ashamed to post that list. That is the most pathetic roster of nobodies for a fighter whom many had as pfp # 1 fighter in the world at one point and touted as the best middleweight since Marvin Hagler.

Kassim Ouma: Some washed up former welterweight that hasn't fought on nationally televised fight in years. Wasn't Ouma something like 2-6 his last eight fight before their fight.
Vanes Martirosyan: this motherfuckers hasn't been in the ring in 2 years when Golovkin's management dug him out of retirement.
Dominic Wade: Tell the truth, did you know whom Wade was before the fight promotion?
Nobuhiro Ishida: Get the fuck outta here, another welterweight. Oh never mind, he got fat and fought at heavyweight.
Willie Monroe Jr: what a world beater. Willie Monroe makes Paulie Malignaggi look like George Foreman

So he fought Soul Alvarez twice, but did he win? Did Canelo not have him doing his best Lara impression, backing up all fight after spending weeks talking about Canelo not fighting "Mexican Style"?

If I give you my Danny Jacobs scorecard, I'll be accused of being biased. I watched that fight on Skysports and I swear the British guy calling the fight whom I believe was a former fighter had Jacobs edging the fight on the scorecard just like I did. But you know, nothing is impossible when the premier boxing network at the time that has spent years trying to turn you into a boxing ppv star is completely behind you.

Danny Jacobs and Canelo Alvarez, those are the two best fighter Tripple G has fought. That's it it! Remember, this guy is supposedly the greatest middleweight since Marvin Hagler. Years ago his fans were talking about how he would have shattered Jones Jr's "glass jaw" and outskilled James Toney.

Till date, his best win is blown up welterweight in Kell Brooks. Kell freaking Brooks.

I don't even want to talk about last Saturday's fight with that ridiculous scorecard.

When I left that post, I knew it was going to have you Tripple G fanboys fuming at the mouth. You motherfuckers hate the truth.
