WATCH: GGG Barely Flinches After Taking A Canelo Bomb To The Face
Remember when Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez punched Amir Khan so hard that Khan ended up back in Bolton? Well imagine that, only this time, instead of Khan, the fighter taking the punch is Gennady Golovkin and instead of his legs turning into actual spaghetti, the Kazakhstani reacts in the same manner as a bloke in a beer garden trying to shoo a wasp away from his pint.
The two middleweight champions fought to a thrilling, albeit controversial draw in Las Vegas last night, with both fighters putting in memorable performances in an attempt to settle the debate as to who is the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world, right now.
And while we may not have been given a definitive answer to that question, the more pressing matter was, 'WHAT IN THE BLUE SHITE IS GENNADY GOLOVKIN'S CHIN MADE OUT OF?'
The undefeated WBA , WBC, IBF, and IBO middleweight champion has never been knocked down in his 38 fight professional career and, judging by the punishment his chin absorbed last night without even the slightest of flinches, it's safe to say you could drive a cement mixer into the 35-year-old's face and the most he'd get would be a slight headache.
The shot that has gained the most attention in the aftermath of the fight is Canelo's knockout blow that caught Golovkin right in the kisser. The only problem with it was, whereas any other human being on the planet would have been staring at the T-mobile Arena lights a split second later, Golovkin was roaring back into the fight, barely registering the fact one of the greatest boxers in the world had just done his best to punch his nose through the back of his skull.
GGG's chin is insane. Dude didn't even flinch pic.twitter.com/b5u7S4pq6z- Mekka Don (@MekkaDonMusic) September 17, 2017
I mean, who even survives something like that? Even a Nokia 3210 would have exploded upon the same impact, yet Golovkin simply carries on like normal.
Will a boxing expert tell me how you beat golovkin at middleweight? His chin is insane and his pressure and power is relentless

Golovkin's chin won that fight. Anybody else eats those shots, they're on the floor looking up at a flashlight. Canelo gave him everything.

Following the result of last night's bout, a rematch is already in the works, although no potential date has been put forward, yet.
Canelo might want to think about strapping a pair of anvils to his hands, or something.
