Gennady Golvokin, popularly known as GGG, is the IBF, IBO, and WBA (super) middleweight champion of the world. Despite hitting the age of 40 earlier this year, GGG continues to be a formidable opponent as proven by his last fight when he beat Ryōta Murata to retain his titles. Golvokin’s career record is almost flawless except for his 2 fights against Canelo where he lost one and drew the other.
