Gennadiy Golovkin isn’t on Canelo Alvarez’s wishlist for a future battle. The Mexicano famous person Canelo was requested this week by DAZN on who he most popular to battle between Golovkin and Charlo, and he stated, “Charlo.”
Because of this IBF middleweight champion Golovkin must neglect about Canelo (56-1-2, 38 KOs) and begin specializing in dealing with the perfect opposition potential.
Golovkin might have unwittingly damage his probabilities for getting a 3rd battle with Canelo by backing away from taking over elite-level opposition.
If Golovkin had continued to take dangers together with his profession, his reputation can be greater than it’s now, and Canelo can be motivated to battle him once more.
The best way it’s now, Golovkin is the forgotten man within the eyes of many boxing followers as a result of he stopped combating the perfect.
Golovkin ought to have fought these fighters within the final three years to maintain his reputation excessive:
- Demetrius Andrade
- Jermall Charlo
- Erislandy Lara
- Jaime Munguia
- Chris Eubank jr
- Billy Joe Saunders
- Callum Smith
- David Benavidez
Many boxing followers imagine that Golovkin (41-1-1, 36 KOs) has been dealing with mushy opposition since his loss to Canelo in 2018 in order that he wouldn’t get crushed and damage his probabilities of getting a 3rd battle.
With Canelo making it clear that he needs Charlo over GGG, it’s time for the Kazahstan fighter to maneuver on and cease holding out hope that he’ll get a 3rd battle with the Mexican star.
Golovkin’s opposition that he’s confronted within the final three years since signing with DAZN has been disappointing. GGG has mainly stopped taking dangers together with his profession and has taken it straightforward with three fights:
- Steve Rolls
- Sergiy Derevyanchenko
- Kamil Szeremeta
The streaming big DAZN hasn’t gotten a lot of any high quality fights from Golovkin since they signed him.
The three guys that Golovkin has fought since inking a profitable contract with DAZN are extra tune-up stage opposition, not the kind of fighters that one would count on to see from somebody being paid enormous bucks.
DAZN is rumored to be seeking to get Golovkin to battle WBO middleweight champion Demetrius Andrade subsequent somewhat than a battle in opposition to WBA 160-lb champion Ryota Murata.
In response to Eddie Hearn, Golovkin needs to battle the twice-beaten 35-year-old Murata in December in Japan. That’s not a battle that may play out huge within the U.S and usher in subscribers, as Murata isn’t well-known to the informal boxing followers within the States.
The followers which have seen Murata battle have watched him lose to Hassan N’Dam and Rob Brant. Murata avenged each of these losses, however they beat him, displaying you the kind of fighter he’s.
Derevyanchenko certainly turned out to be a tricky battle for Golovkin, however that’s extra an indication of how little the 39-year-old GGG has left within the tank at this level in his 15-year skilled profession.
Daniel Jacobs and Jermall Charlo soundly beat Derevyanchenko. Golovkin struggling in opposition to Derevyanchenko confirmed the place he’s at talent-wise.
If Golovkin needs a 3rd battle with Canelo, he must neglect about combating the paper champion Murata and concentrate on combating the fellows that can usher in subscribers to DAZN. Meaning Golovkin ought to battle Charlo, Andrade, Benavidez, Lara, Eubank Jr, and Callum.
You bought to wonder if DAZN will supply GGG a brand new contract when his present one expires. It’s not that Golovkin is just too outdated to proceed combating.
It’s the best way he’s been enjoying it protected by combating the likes of Rolls, Szeremeta, and Derevyanchenko.
If you’re getting the form of cash that Golovkin is getting from DAZN, he ought to have a way of obligation to present them the kind of fights that they want to usher in subscribers.
You’re not going to do this combating no-name opposition time and again to pad your document to maintain from shedding once more.
GGG selecting to battle Szeremeta lately was an enormous mistake on his half as a result of it was an embarrassingly dangerous battle, and it made it appear to be he’s padding his document by combating woeful opposition.
For those who’re Golovkin, you shouldn’t have taken that battle. Even when Golovkin needed to vacate his IBF title, he shouldn’t have fought Szeremeta.
