After this past weekends destruction of Matthew Macklin, 27-0 Gennady Golovkin is now looking to quickly advance his way through the middleweight division. It took just 3 rounds for Golovkin to put a stop to his encounter with the New York based fighter, something that took Sergio Martinez 12 rounds to do. All the talk is now surrounding the power puncher and where his Boxing journy takes him next, but we could soon have the answer as his promotor has hinted at now targeting the 46-1-1 Mexican Julio Ceaser Chavez jr.
Tom Loeffler, confirms that they will be looking to get another two fights in for Golovkin before the year is out. Its comments like this that really shines through for the Golovkin camp and sits well with all fight fans. Its a mouth watering prospect that would leave fans sitting on either side of the fence here, but its Golovkins performance at the weekend that would probably land him the favorite. Chavez jr who is set to fight American Brian Vera later this year has also found himself in the public eye after finally having his drug abuse case settled, a reduction of $800, 000 has left the Mexican only having to pay a $100, 000 fine, this also comes after completing a nine month ban from the sport.
Chavez jr's camp has yet to comment on a middleweight showdown with Golovkin. It would come nearly a year after losing to p4p contender Martinez, a fight that not only ended his unbeaten streak, but also landed him in trouble after testing positive for marijuana. Golovkin on the other hand is now being put in the mix with some of the biggest names in the sport right now, rumours of a possible shots against Carl Froch and Floyd Mayweather have been thrown about. But for now Golovkins camp has made it very clear who they are after.
