|The Mongoose says he's the one to upset Triple G|
Born to a fighting family, Monroe's great uncle Willie "The Worm" Monroe was the first, and some say only fighter to ever conclusively defeat the great Marvin Hagler, doing so by unanimous decision in 1976 in Philadelphia. As you can imagine, there's persistent confusion about who's who and how they're related.
Monroe's father, also named Willie Monroe, was, as described by his son, "a good middleweight" in the 1990's.

Does Monroe Jr. know he's an off the board underdog, expected by nobody to be able to defeat the marauding Golovkin, a winner of 19 straight by knockout, with 13 of those KO's in defense of the WBA title Monroe Jr. will soon fight for?
Of course he does. It just doesn't seem to bother him one bit.
"I'm the one who can take Golovkin's cloak of invincibility."
