Previous Gennady "GGG" Golovkin knockout casualty, Willie Monroe Jr., is foreseeing that he'll be halted in the ninth round b Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs) in their battle on September 16. Monroe Jr. says he found a shortcoming in Triple G's amusement in battling him within in their battle two years prior on May 16, 2015, and he trusts that the 27-year-old Canelo will have the capacity to exploit that by remaining in near.
Monroe Jr. was thumped out in the sixth round after he quit on his feet following a knockdown. Monroe got back and looked fine subsequent to being dropped by GGG in the sixth, yet he let ref Jack Reiss no that he would not like to proceed. Monroe Jr. has been named a "weakling" by a considerable measure of boxing fans from that point onward.
Monroe feels sure that his expectation of the Canelo-Golovkin battle will work out, as he precisely anticipated the current Andre "SOG" Ward versus Sergey "Krusher" Kovalev battle last June in foreseeing a knockout win for Ward. Monroe Jr. was off by one round in his expectation of the Ward-Kovalev 2 battle, in foreseeing that Ward would stop Kovalev in the ninth. Ward wound up halting Kovalev in the eighth, but by a disputable TKO after he seemed to hit the Russian warrior with three back to back low blows. Monroe Jr. didn't specify the low blows when discussing his forecast of the Ward versus Kovalev 2 battle. That would have been pleasant if Monroe Jr. had possessed the capacity to anticipate that early.
"Clearly, the sort of the middleweight division is Golovkin," said Monroe Jr. to BoxNation. "I lost to him at an opportune time in my profession. He's intense. He's skillfully ungainly. Individuals don't understand. They take a gander at his energy. They don't understand he's extremely capable, yet he's exceptionally clumsy moreover. Any cumbersome warrior can give any contender a major test; also we're talking Triple G, as well. He's a decent warrior, skillfully ungainly, and exceptionally solid," said Monroe.
Monroe Jr. is at present 30-years of age. His battle with Golovkin occurred only 2 years back when he was 28. I wouldn't state the Golovkin-Monroe Jr. battle occurred before in Monroe's vocation. It was just 2 years back. The battle basically occurred yesterday. Not a lot has changed. Monroe Jr. has won his last two battles against John Thompson and Gabriel Rosado. Monroe Jr. is a similar person that battled Golovkin in 2015. As opposed to well-known conclusion, Golovkin is a similar person that battled Monroe Jr. He's not changed by any means. Everything is the same in Golovkin. He hasn't blurred. You should simply take a gander at the Golovkin versus Monroe Jr. battle and contrast it with his current match against Danny Jacobs to realize that he's a similar person. Jacobs was a considerable measure greater than Golovkin and in addition Monroe Jr.
Monroe Jr. will be testing WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders on September 16 at the Copper Box Arena in London, England. On the off chance that Monroe Jr. beats Saunders, he'll have a decent shot of battling the victor of the Canelo versus Golovkin battle in the event that they don't confront each other in a quick rematch. There's additionally a change that the World Boxing Organization may arrange Monroe Jr. to battle any semblance of #2 WBO David Lemieux or #6 WBO Danny Jacobs. The brilliant move for the Canelo-Golovkin champ would be for them to sit tight for the WBO to arrange the Saunders-Monroe Jr. Victor to confront Jacobs or Lemieux first before battling for the WBO strap. Whoever develops as the victor of the Saunders versus Monroe Jr. battle would likely lose to Lemieux or Jacobs. We'd have a considerably greater battle for whoever rises up out of the Canelo versus GGG session to confront any semblance of Lemieux or Jacobs.
