Golovkin Massive Favourite To Defeat Murray

Gennady Golovkin, who is widely considered to be one of the very best pound-for-pound fighters in the world, will next be stepping into the ring against Martin Murray on February 21st at Salle des Etoiles, Monte Carlo, Monaco.

There will be a total of three titles - WBA Super World middleweight, interim WBC World Middleweight and International Boxing Organization World middleweight - on the line when Golovkin and Murray step into the ring.

Golovkin heads into this fight with a perfect 31-0-0 record with a staggering 28 of his wins coming via knockout. Golovkin's last three fights (Rubio, Geale and Adama) have all finished via knockout.

Murray, on the other hand, will enter this fight with a none-too-shabby record of 29-1-1. Murray's lone loss came against Sergio Gabriel Martinez in April of 2013. However, it is probably safe to say that Murray has never stepped into the ring against somebody as talented as "GGG".


Here are the current odds for the Golovkin/Murray tilt:

Gennady Golovkin, 1.07
Draw, 26.00
Martin Murray, 8.00

So, according to these odds, a successful $100 bet on Golovkin would yield a total profit of just $7, while a successful $100 wager on Murray would return a total profit of $700.
