Who will want to fight the Kazakh now after his latest devastating performance?
Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez did not fancy it and dropped a weight division, relinquishing his WBC middleweight title, to avoid a Sept. 17 showdown with GGG. Canelo says he now wants the fight in a year’s time, but on this display Golovkin is showing no signs of diminishing with age. By fighting a world champion two weights below him, Golovkin showed he is running out of opponents.
He wants the WBO champion, Billy Joe Saunders next, but Saunders declined an offer to fight him at the start of the year. Who else is there?
The WBA have issued a mandatory against Daniel Jacobs, but is that really a challenge? GGG wont need to get out of 2nd gear!
For GGG to face a real challenge (bar Canelo) he will have to come out of his 160lb comfort zone and step up to Super Middleweight (or even Higher).
James DeGale has a good shout of being regarded as the world No.1 and I believe would be a quality test. Slick Southpaw who can bang and take a shot. Deal me in!
He could also jump two weight divisions to face the winner of Sergey Kovalev-Andre Ward. I’m not saying he would win but he has to take a risk in order to quash the critics who will forever point to the lack of names on his record.
