Business Insider ranks the 15 best boxers in the world right now. Gennady Golovkin is ranked 9th. 

According to Business Insider, the reason him being in top 10 best boxers in the world is because he popularized the phrase "Big Drama Show" plays his part in an event like few others.

Before Golovkin turned professional, he was a wildly decorated amateur fighter with a 2003 World Amateur Championships gold medal and a silver at the 2004 Olympic Games.

He turned pro two years later, won his first (interim) world title four years after that, and quickly developed a reputation because of his punching power. 

The only blemishes on Golovin's record are a 2017 draw against "Canelo" Alvarez, which some say he should have won, and a loss in the rematch, which he also should have won, according to others.

He recaptured a middleweight belt in his last fight, a close decision win over the Ukranian boxer Sergiy Derevyanchenko.

He won IBF middleweight world title (2019 to present), and a former three-belt middleweight world titlist.
