That was pretty darn brutal.
My ratonale was that GGG had not really met a top middle. He handled Macklin like a baby ,hurting him with everything he threw. He has fast exceptional power, and is tremendously adept at cutting the ring off.He is indeed the real deal.

This was never a good bet

A guy who needs to come forward and be aggresive to win vs elite level monstrous puncher = KO every single time

Every single time

Macklin was the first top middleweight Golovkin had faced his previous wins were largely over welters and junior middles,he was not proven as an "elite level monstrous puncher" at 160,he is now!

Very true about the bolded, however I think his fantastic amateur pedigree to me, marks him out as an elite fighter, he hadn't yet fought high level opposition in the pro's, but his skillset is still that of a top, top fighter, and his power is downright scary.

Also, I don't think a pressure fighter vs a monstrous puncher will end well for the pressure fighter even if the puncher isn't elite, someone like Adonis stevenson (who isn't greatly skilled) would be a horrible fight for someone who has to comeforward at him
