GGG walked through perhaps one of the biggest right hands thrown in the middleweight division in 2017. A chin of absolute steel.
GGG is known to have one of the best chins in the business but he truly put it on full show at times in his fight with Canelo Alvarez.

Canelo said afterwards that he didn’t think Golovkin’s power was anything special himself, but say what you want, ‘GGG’ for his part at least – surely at least felt this from Canelo below.
He wouldn’t be human otherwise:
