Kyrone Davis On Golovkin: He’s Not The Boogeyman, Quillin and Lee Should Step-Up


Kyrone Davis

Twenty-year-old undefeated prospect Kyrone Davis took some time during training to speak with ThaBoxingVoice about fellow middleweights, Peter Quillin, Andy Lee and Gennady Golovkin.

As a middleweight, it is to be expected that Davis would have an eye on last week’s activity within the division; specifically, Peter Quillin’s unexpected draw with Andy Lee. Kyrone explained what he saw out of both fighters.

“They were lookin for one big shot, man. Them guys… they can punch, man! Those guys are dangerous, you gotta be careful with those guys. It was a good fight, I think a draw was appropriate… but I do think Peter Quillin edged it a little bit.”

Before the draw, Peter Quillin was widely considered to be Gennady Golovkin’s biggest challenge at middleweight but now those feelings seem to have cooled. As a fellow middleweight with big expectations, Davis gave his thoughts on Golovkin.

“Triple G is human, man. He’s a good fighter, and I feel like he is very talented… you can tell, he’s got a big amateur background. You can’t have a big amateur background like that if you can’t box, you know.”

Davis went on about Golovkin’s power and whether it intimidates him at all.

“They say he hits hard. I’ve never been in the ring with him, but you can tell he hits hard. You know, when that moment presents itself, and I can fight a guy like that all you gotta do is be a hundred percent ready. Is he the boogeyman? No. Not for me.”

People will scoff at the young man, but you have to be confident to step into the ring. It’s good that he can recognize the danger and resist fearing it. Bluster or not, Kyrone Davis is saying the right thing, and he continued when he expressed his opinion on whether Quillin and Lee should step up to the plate against Golovkin.

“When we get to that level, and it’s time to shine in the ring and step up to the plate. I feel like those guys [Lee and Quillin] should step up to the plate and fight Triple G.”


Kyrone Davis (6-0, 3 KOs) looks to keep his undefeated record intact against Carlos Garcia (7-13-1, 7 KOs) on April 25th, Live from Harrah’s Philadelphia.
