Trash talk coffins can’t contain him. Dynamite cannot destroy him. He picks Chuck Norris out of his teeth with a machete, and that’s to make room for more 1980s action stars. Gennady Golovkin is just waiting to be given one of those Super Mario Brothers star power-ups and set loose upon the sport of boxing, divisions strawweight through heavyweight. And then when aliens are discovered and they invent new weight classes, he’ll want in on those, too. And anytime something so catastrophic, so immeasurable and so galactic happens in the sport of boxing, you can bet that James Foley of Bad Left Hook and TQBR’s Patrick Connor will be read to step in and make jokes at its expense. And joining the bastardly bloggers this week is Jimmy Tobin of The Cruelest Sport. Also on the agenda is this coming weekend’s HBO tripleheader that includes Rocky Martinez vs. Mikey Garcia, Nonito Donaire vs. Vic Darchinyan II and Demetrius Andrade vs. Vanes Martirosyan.
