Columnist Chris Mannix believes that age-old boxing legend Gennady Golovkin (42-2-1, 37 KOs) from Kazakhstan, who recently relinquished his IBF middleweight belt, will soon vacate his WBA Super title as well.
The thing is that Golovkin is now required to fight with the Cuban Erislandy Lara – the owner of the belt according to the WBA World. Mannix believes that “it is unlikely that GGG will offer terms acceptable to him. Those conditions that he will be ready to accept. In September, Golovkin said that he was not thinking about retirement yet. But with a high degree of probability, the next time he enters the ring, he will do it without championship belts.
Mannix is confident that “the decision to give up the IBF title came precisely for this reason. He needed to make a mandatory defense with Esquiva Falcao, and none of the networks were interested in this fight. I won’t be surprised if the situation repeats itself this month with Lara.”
It was because of this that rumors again spread that Golovkin would end his career. The boxer’s lawyer commented on this. Meanwhile, the boxing legend claims that Munguia will knock out GGG.
