CompuBox Analysis: Golovkin vs. Macklin

by CompuBox

As of this writing, WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin is regarded by many as the second-best 160-pounder on earth and after top dog Sergio Martinez's struggle against Martin Murray in April some are putting "GGG" at number one.

The German-based Kazakh will look to further his case Saturday by fighting a previous Martinez victim in Matthew Macklin, who floored "Maravilla" in the seventh before falling in the 11th in March 2012. If Golovkin can beat Martinez's score in the clubhouse, and look good in doing so, he'll bolster his case for a potential head-to-head showdown in 2014.

Each man's CompuBox history unveils factors that may influence the result.
