When it comes to Gennady Golovkin and Roman Gonzalez's upcoming fights, we could say, and quite fairly, that neither fighter is facing the opponent most of us would wish he'd face. Blame whoever you want for it, but we would certainly prefer fights against Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Juan Francisco Estrada, respectively.
That being said, with what we're being given on HBO this weekend, there's still not much to complain about. Golovkin and Gonzalez are clearly the most potent one-two combination in boxing today. Both men are among the best fighters in the world, and in Gonzalez's case, perhaps the best fighter alive. Neither opponent -- Kell Brook for Golovkin, Carlos Cuadras for Gonzalez -- is anything but world class. We'll just have to see what they can do.
