Number 4. Gennady Golovkin, 34-0-0 (KO 31) – Middleweight
He’s a hard-hitting dynamo from Kazakhstan who knocked out 90 percent of his opponent. He easily handled and stopped the once perceived toughest test of his career in Mathew Macklin for just three rounds.
In November 2013, he stopped hard-hitting Curtis Stevens in round 8. And in February 2014, he knockout Osumanu Adama in round 7. He’s suppose to come back in April but due to the death of his father he cancelled a date with HBO.
In his return, Golovkin fought the top MW contenders; Daniel Geale and Marco Antonio Rubio. But they failed to bring tough competition to Golovkin. He stopped Geale in round three, annihilate Rubio in two.
Recently, he stopped undefeated prospect Dominic Wade in Round 2. Golovkin is pursuing a unification bout against MW lineal champion Saul Canelo Alvarez. The Mexican Star is set to defend title against Amir Khan.
