Golovkin vs Macklin video: Andre Ward Scouting Report

HBO analyst and world super middleweight champion Andre Ward gives his take on this Saturday's Golovkin vs Macklin matchup.

Andre Ward, HBO Sports

"Golovkin is a hard-charging Kazakhstani fighter with a decorated amateur background who has made his reputation in the U.S. for hurting anyone's chin that he touches. He's taking on the tough Matthew Macklin, who put up a spirited effort against Sergio Martinez, and who's coming off a one-round destruction in his last fight. But can he hold off the freight train in Golovkin in this fight?

"This is a very interesting matchup from the standpoint of Golovkin, who has all the fanfare, who has the momentum, he has to not only win but he has to do it in devastating fashion, and he has to look good doing it. Matthew Macklin, he has to simply take the punch of Golovkin, land enough punches of his own, and simply get his hand raised.

"This fight is guaranteed to be a fan-friendly matchup and a must-see."

Golovkin vs Macklin is live this Saturday night on HBO at 9:45 pm EDT, the headline bout of a tripleheader.
