GGG took the Martirosyan fight, he would lose his IBF strap.Fortunately for the Kazakh, the board have granted him an exception in this fight – but have said he must face mandatory challenger Sergey Derevyanchenko next should he win on May 5.
The IBF have not sanctioned the fight with Nightmare because the challenger is coming off a loss, is a junior middleweight moving up in weight and has not boxed in two years.Golovkin wins – as most expect him to – he needs to open dialogue with Derevyanchenko’s team and set up a meeting before August 3 if he wants to defend the IBF strap
Martirosyan has evolved into more of an action style in recent years (including during a stretch with Joe Goossen as trainer) but has experience stretching fights deep. Yet his long layoff certainly needs to be taken into strong consideration, as does the fact that the more he steps on the gas pedal to create excitement, the more he is open to Golovkin’s thudding power.
Martirosyan has enough craft, speed and a strong amateur pedigree to make things interesting for the first half of the fight. But this isn’t a necessarily a debate about the likelihood that he pulls an upset; not only are the betting odds not in his favor, he lacks the prerequisite elite slickness or heavy counter punching to be taken as a serious enough threat.
Martirosyan is there to simply survive, he may have an outside chance of doing so. But one thing he has never lacked is courage and that desire to put on a show and prove himself again after two years in promotional seclusion should play directly into Golovkin’s hands.
