One of the most important fighters in recent years has been Gennady Golovkin, who has put Central Asian boxing on the map, in a huge way. The hard hitting Kazakh Middleweight was a big draw and a major force at 160lbs for a decade or so and a hugely successful amateur.
His success and charisma has lead to a number of songs being recorded about him, including "Mexican Style" by Mario Ruiz and Omar Cruz.
Not only is the song about Golovkin, but it also features "GGG" in the music video. A simple but effective song and video for one of the stars of the 2010's.
When we discuss the most impressive natural talents to come out of the Philippines in recent years we need to state that Marvin Sonsona was a very special fighter. Sadly for Sonsona he lacked the commitment to make the most of that ability.
Although Sonsona failed to do what he had the ability to do he did manage to inspire Mike Swift & J-Hon to record a song dedicated to him, "Marvelous Marvin Sonsona".
The song isn't amazing, but it's certainly not terrible and is worth a listen.
Sadly this just makes us think of what a wasted talent Sonsona really was. He was marvelous, but he really should have done so much more.
We spent last month sharing Manny Pacquiao related songs. This week we look at a song dedicated to another Filipino world champion, Johnriel Casimer0.
The track is "Quadro Alas", also dubbed the official theme song of Team Casimero, and was recorded by Sly Kane.
We don't know much about Sly Kane, but this is a much more relaxing sounding song than many of recent Pacquaio songs, which were all hard hitting. This has a smooth feel to it, and combines English with Filipino really well. Released several years ago this is a very nice track, dedicated to one of the most over-looked Filipino fighters in recent years.
This one gets the thumbs up seal of approval from us.
