Martirosyan has enough craft, speed and a strong amateur pedigree to make things interesting for the first half of the fight. But this isnt 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.
GGG vs Martirosyan Fight Vanes Martirosyan will provide the opposition as he steps in to save the date for Golovkin and his team after Alvarez pulled out of the fight following two failed drug tests. The big question is can Martirosyan provide a real challenge for GGG.
Martirosyan is knockouts to his name. He hasnt fought since a decision loss to Erislandy Lara two years ago. He has been competitive against some big names in the past, but this is obviously a much lesser matchup for Golovkin than the bout with Alvarez. This is evidences by the bout shifting to to the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif., a smaller venue.
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
