Martin Murray, who has firsthand experience with Gennady Golovkin, believes Kell Brook should know what he's in for on fight night, warning his fellow compatriot of Golovkin's reputable power.

"Every shot Golovkin throws kind of hurts you," Murray exclusively told World Boxing News

"He's got so many good shots and he can take a shot too. Gives you non-stop pressure and just does everything well. That's the thing with him - everything it takes to be a top fighter, Golovkin does it well."

So when asked about the chance he gives Brook to be able to pull off a massive upset, Murray gives a concise response:

"I can't see anyone beating him at middleweight so Kell going up two weights is a tough ask."

Murray's words of wisdom here aren't exactly a surprise to anyone who follows the sport - Golovkin certainly has a fearsome reputation for a reason. And when you combine that reputation with an upcoming fight against a career welterweight, well, let's just say you'll be hard-pressed to find anyone who doesn't think the results of this fight is a foregone conclusion.
