GENNADY GOLOVKIN is one of the greatest pound-for-pound fighters of all time.
The Kazakh middleweight is putting his WBA (Super), WBC, and IBO belts on the line once again as he faces Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez in an epic rematch in Las Vegas this Saturday.
Why is Gennady Golovkin called GGG?
SINCE his pro debut in May 2006, Golovkin has won himself a legion of fans for his ferocious punching power and ability to take a shot.
The Kazakh star might come across as mechanical in his style, but he’s almost technically faultless and has a record of 38-0-1, with 34 by way of knockout.
His full name is Gennady Gennadyevich Golovkin, hence the nickname GGG or Triple G.
This has become not only his moniker but a brand, with hats and t-shirts sporting the slogan available on his online store.
Has he ever been dropped in his career?
DURING his fourteen-year pro career, Golovkin has never hit the canvas.
He is renowned for having a granite chin and has never been dropped as either an amateur or a professional.
There is a famous moment in the first fight with Canelo where the Mexican caught GGG flush with a huge right-hand, but the Kazakh star just walked on forward.
