Joe Rogan: Golovkin Looks Like He Is From A Russian Boyband

Published On October 21, 2016 | By Niall Doran | Boxing News, Boxing Views and Opinion

UFC colour commentator and global podcast mogul Joe Rogan speaks on how looks can be deceiving and how middleweight knockout artist Gennady Golovkin is the epitome of this.

Golovkin is currently locked in negotiations for a fight in the new year with Daniel Jacobs but he’s received some praise this week outside of boxing from a prominent member of the mixed martial arts world.

Joe Rogan is known to many fight fans the world over for his colourful commentary in the UFC, but he is also the founder and owner of one of the world’s biggest podcasts – the Joe Rogan Experience.

Speaking this week on his podcast Rogan gave an interesting analogy on how Golovkin’s ferocity and power is not what you expect for such a polite, well spoken guy.

Joe Rogan joked:

“Golovkin is a scary guy because he looks like some cute little boy band character. He looks like he’s from a Russian boy band. If you look at his body it’s not the scariest body. You see Golovkin knocking people about and you go wow where’s all that coming from?”

He continued:

“He’s got flawless technique though. Flawless. He’s so aggressive too. He keeps a pace on guys that’s very difficult to handle. He bleeds guys. He saps them. He’s a left hooker to the body. He stays on guys with combinations. He’s always pressing forward. You can never rest with that guy. It’s a really interesting style.”
