The cavalcade of shenanigans kicked off by Canelo Alvarez’s failed drug test will finally come to a head this Saturday (May 5, 2018) as Gennady Golovkin instead fights former Junior Middleweight title challenger, Vanes Martirosyan, at StubHub Center, Carson, California.
Loeffler jumped in to quickly reiterate Golovkin’s mission statement — regardless of title defense record or not, big name opponent or late replacement — remains on doing one thing.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.
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. This is more of a discussion about whether Martirosyan finds himself a sneaky candidate to last the full distance.
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.
