GGG vs Rubio

    GGG vs Rubio

This Saturday night HBO Boxing returns with a great double header.  Gennady Golovkin who is the best middleweight in the world, will be defending his WBA championship title against rugged veteran contender Marco Antonio Rubio.  In a co-main event that could possibly steal the show, Nonito Donaire defends his WBA featherweight championship title against the undefeated power puncher Nicholas Walters.  As always I’ll give my Swag Science break down and prediction for both featured bouts.

Gennady Golovkin vs Marco Antonio Rubio (Middleweight)

This is a real solid match up right here.  Rubio is aggressive, durable, and has a pretty good punch.  He’s also a good sized middleweight with solid ring experience.  Skill wise, he’s not the best boxer that Golovkin has faced, but he’s probably the toughest opponent to date.  Rubio is at his best when coming forward and Golovkin is at his worst when backing up so it all comes down to a battle of wills.  Does Rubio have enough firepower to make GGG respect him?  Does GGG hit hard enough to make Rubio give up and stop trying to win?  I believe Rubio will attempt to start out fast, but once GGG start’s picking him off with counters and stiff jabs he’ll eventually slow down.  Once that happens, GGG will step up the aggression and force the stoppage.  I think Rubio will stick around a little while longer than most of GGG’s recent opponents.  I see this ending somewhere around the 8th or 9th round.  At the end of the day GGG is just on another level than Rubio is.
