Golovkin lost against Canelo, but it was close, no doubt about that. Golovkin is a great fighter, should still have a fair bit left in the tank, he is declining, won't be able to repeat his performance from the Canelo rematch, but he can come close. I think until Golovkin loses again at least once, gets at least a year older, it will take a great fighter to beat him, he can still win a world title, can still unify if he doesn't come accross another great champion.

I don't think this is a tough fight for Golovkin, he has been out for a fair bit, but isn't coming off a layoff, I think this is a tune up for Golovkin.

Rolls is 19-0, good record, but he is 35, no amateur career recorded on BoxRec, he is not a non-puncher, but isn't that much of a puncher, he has fought at USA title level, but this is a leap up in levels, his best wins are probably Nicholson and Leatherwood, who were beaten one sided by Centeno, Lee, Hart. Rolls just edged out Nicholson, I think he is a very good USA level fighter, but he is not nearly world level.

Rolls has been down, that was against Nicholson, who can punch, but I don't think he hits anywhere near as hard as Golovkin, so Golovkin can definitely hurt him easily. Golovkin is not much older than Rolls, but in terms of experience and pedigree, amateur and professional, there is no comparison. Rolls has 53% KOs, to say he doesn't have Golovkin's power is an understatement.

Rolls can't out box Golovkin, doesn't have his skill, doesn't hit as hard, doesn't have as good a chin, he is younger and fresher, but I think the difference in calibre is too much, and this will be an easy win for Golovkin. Rolls has to just try his best, it is a good opportunity for him, but I don't think he has a chance.

I think Golovkin stops Rolls in 5.
