Golovkin vs Rolls: Pros react to GGG’s comeback knockout of Steve Rolls

It was the relatively easy work most expected, being honest.

Gennadiy Golovkin did more or less as expected tonight at Madison Square Garden, knocking out Steve Rolls in the fourth round of his return to the ring, also GGG’s debut on DAZN, and hopefully — if you’re Golovkin, at least — setting up a third fight with Canelo Alvarez on Sept. 14.

So here’s the “pros react” post that we do weekly, because people read it, but since there frankly wasn’t a ton of reaction to this fight, let’s focus on the first one on the list:

This could be De La Hoya simply selling Canelo-GGG III, adding some fuel to the fire to get people to go, “That shouldn’t be how it is!” and talking about it on a night where frankly the buzz is fairly low. It could also be sincere, but that would be odd for a boxing promoter.

Anyway, here’s the rest of the few. Seems most pros were out living their lives and not glued to DAZN tonight.
