Golovkin is required to conduct a mandatory defense. Opponent is not Lara


The WBA Super and IBF middleweight champion legendary Kazakh puncher Gennady Golovkin (42-2-1, 37 KOs) in the next fight should fight his mandatory IBF contender Esquiva Falcao (30-0, 20 KOs) from Brazil, informs

According to the source, the IBF managed to negotiate with the WBA – they had previously insisted on an immediate fight between the Kazakhstani and the owner of the WBA World belt, the age-old Cuban Erislandy Lara (29-3-3, 17 KOs). It became known that the winner of the fight Golovkin vs Falcao is then obliged to immediately fight with Lara.

Falcao – silver medalist at the 2012 Olympics. He won the position of mandatory contender in a fight with Canadian puncher Patrice Volney – the fight ended with the victory of the Brazilian by technical decision.

It is possible that Golovkin will refuse the IBF belt and the fight with the little-known Brazilian, because Falcao’s promoter Bob Arum is unlikely (Top Rank) will be able to financially satisfy the Kazakh legend. The IBF is ready for such a turn of events – the second line of the organization’s rating was won by Australian Michael Zerafa (30-4, 19 KOs), who beautifully upset his compatriot prospect Isaac Hardman.

So it is possible that in the next fight Golovkin will still fight with Lara, whose interests are represented by Premier Boxing Champions Al Haymon. A Kazakhstani can accept any offer that interests him, as he is a self-promoter (GGG Promotions) and does not have a valid contract with any TV network.

In the last fight held, he tried to take away the status of the undisputed super middleweight champion from the antagonist from Mexico, Canelo Alvarez, but lost on points.

Do you know how Golovkin will return to the boxing elite? De La Hoya has the answer. And the ex-coach of the Kazakhstani said that Charlo and Andred did not deserve the fight with GGG. It’s funny that the legendary Andre Ward brutally smashed Canelo Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin.
