The Queensbury Rules:
Matthew Macklin deserved the win over Felix Sturm. Matthew Macklin might have beaten middleweight champion Sergio Martinez on the scorecards had he made it past the 11th round. Those are two of the best 160-pounders of the past half-decade. Gennady Golovkin treated Macklin like a pit bull with a rag doll between his teeth, stopping him in three rounds on HBO Saturday.
Golovkin is a calm killing machine, a boxer with unbelievable punching power and the technique to make it all the more lethal. This is the best middleweight in the world. If you're at 160 and you're in his way, you have two choices: Run and hide, and take the hit with the public; or take your medicine, and count the birdies.
On the undercard, two of promoter Lou DiBella's prospects -- Willie Nelson and Thomas Oosthuizen had rough outings, but escaped with a win and a draw, respectively.
