Gennady Golovkin lands punch on Grzegorz Proksa
OK, as Dennis Green might say, I'm not quite ready to crown Gennady Golovkin yet but he certainly left an impression in his stateside/HBO debut in dominating Grzegorz Proksa in five rounds at the Turning Stone Resort and Casino in Verona, New York. All told, he performed in a manner where you want to see him again - and soon. Perhaps he could face Daniel Geale, who had a well-earned, hard-fought victory over Felix Sturm in Germany, unifying the IBF and WBA middleweight titles. 
The WBA announced that the winner of that fight, now the WBA’s “super” champion, had to face Golovkin by the end of the year. But with Geale also having the IBF strap, he now has other options.
On the other side of the spectrum was the drudgery that was the 12-round draw between Sergiy Dzinziruk and Jonathan Gonzalez. Dzinziruk was only on this telecast because he was promised a return to the network by Ross Greenburg regardless of how he performed against Sergio Martinez in March of 2011 (it's decisions like this that got Greenburg bounced from his position at HBO Sports in the first place). Gonzalez was another guy who simply had no business being on “The Network of Champions” and he came in a full nine pounds overweight. 
So while bouts like Brian Viloria-Hernan Marquez can't get on “B.A.D.”, we get Dzinziruk-Gonzalez because of past ineptness and politics from those in charge.
