Does Gennady Golovkin Deserve A Shot At Martinez?

Gennady Golovkin, where does he belong in the boxing pyramid?

Should he be given the opportunity against Martinez? Has he deserved as much attention as he is currently getting from the media? Is he showing any signs of a future champion?

When I take into consideration that fighting out of another country and making any kind of a name in United States is already a respectable achievement, Golovkin, with a record of (25-0-0) and an 88% KO rate, automatically deserves the respect to at least be considered as an opponent against any active champion.

Of course some people will always attack the record and the names that his victories contain. Look, there has got to be a start in order for there to be an opening to show one’s skills and drive. I believe that Golovkin is as ready as he ever will be to face Martinez or anyone else. If not Martinez, give him Chavez. Jr.; but let him fight a somewhat seasoned local fighter so that Gennady can show us what he is capable of.
