Re: Golovkin Counts Down To Saturday Clash Vs. Adama
To bad Haglers not around... He could probably last 13 or 14 rounds against GGG going by the old school format. Apparently GGG's management wants to prolong the Ward confrontation. And Quillen is still missing in action whenever someone's name, who is not bum, is mentioned.
