Here is Potshot Boxing’s (PSB) Prediction for the upcoming WBA (Super) and IBO middleweight title fight between Gennady Golovkin and Marco Antonio Rubio.
On October 18, 2014 at the Stub Hub Center in Carson, California, the up and coming boxing sensation Gennady “GGG” Golovkin will once again step into the ring after only a 2 and a half month layoff to give the boxing world another good show. This time his opponent is Marco Antonio Rubio.

So what does Marco Antonio Rubio have in his arsenal that can threaten Golovkin’s WBA (Super) and IBO middleweight world titles? Well let’s see; Rubio likes to come forward and is aggressive which may or may not work in his favor against Golovkin. I expect for Rubio to try and come forward by throwing a lot of punches in hopes of throwing off the boxing of Golovkin.
Golovkin also likes to come forward, and the one thing that will give Golovkin the edge in this fight is his vicious body punching. Rubio is susceptible to getting hit to the body so this could and probably will be the difference in this fight. I expect for Golovkin to attack Rubio’s body every chance his gets in hopes of breaking the will of yet another good opponent.
Rubio’s attacking boxing style will make it easy for Golovkin to win rounds. The question will be whether or not Rubio will start back-peddling once he feels Golovkin’s power. Rubio has power too so do not be surprised if Golovkin gets rocked in this fight because Rubio has some decent power that can sit you down if you are not careful.
This is going to be an interesting fight! You have 2 fighters who likes to attack, but in the end, I feel that the body punching of Golovkin will spell doom for the gamed Rubio. I predict Golovkin will score his 18th stoppage in a row and hold on to those middleweight straps!
Prediction: Gennady “GGG” Golovkin by Knockout
