Former world champion in two weight divisions American Danny Garcia (37-3-1, 21 KOs) aims to conquer the third category. To do this, he needs a veteran from Cuba, Erislandi Lara (29-3-3, 17 KOs), the WBA World middleweight champion (up to 72.6 kg).
plans drag the opponent to intermediate weight: “70.3 kg. Here is such a proposal. I want to become a champion in three divisions. And after that, I only want the biggest fights possible. When I become a middleweight champion, I will get all these fights – rematches with Errol Spence, Canelo Alvarez, Gennady Golovkin. I’ll get everyone!”
But Charlo Garcia refused fights with Tony Harrison and Jermall: “No, no. I only want big fights. I’m not saying no one knows Tony. But the fight with him will not bring me 10 million USD. Therefore, a rematch with Spence and two middleweight fights with Canelo and GGG. Jermall doesn’t interest me now either. Only those fights that will bring me a lot of money.
It is interesting that the WBA wants to see veterans Golovkin and Lara in a head-to-head fight – they must determine the only middleweight champion of the organization.
It was rumored that Golovkin would end his career. The boxer’s lawyer commented on the rumors. But the expert suggests that GGG will soon give up the second belt.
