While a lot are waiting for the big event to happen in boxing history, Oscar De La Hoya CEO of Golden Boy Promotions is waiting for Saul Canelo Alvarez’ Florida case in the court before anything goes down on the negotiations on Gennady Golovkin. Alvarez who is De La Hoya’s fighter will have to settle some things before they formally start discussing with Golovkin’s team and promoter K2.
They still have lawsuits to entertain and proceed with the plan. Golden Promotions promised their boxing fans that the case will not take awhile and will finish soon. Although a lot of expectations that the Canelo vs Golovkin to happen, Golden Boy Promotions see that as a possibility as well and are open for planning.
To make the fight to happen, especially the anticipated Canelo and Golovkin bout, both team will have to meet halfway and agree to the terms laid out, especially on Golovkin’s team. If Gennady Golovkin really wanted the Alvarez fight to happen, Triple G will have to meet the catch weight that is presented to them and with the split offer/pay to be discussed as well.
Golovkin will be draining down his weight to be at par on the requested catch-weight and this is something that interests the fans, ring side commentators, and the promoters as well if Golovkin will agree to the terms. A lot are worried as well if Golovkin being at 34 will have enough strength to face his young and active opponent. A lot are wondering as well if losing weight will affect Golovkin’s performance and will not be able to deliver what is expected to his as well being a pride power puncher. There are a lot of opinions running around the industry in their upcoming fight. A lot are in favor with Golovkin, other news viewed Oscar De La Hoya’s plan to be a need and greed for money.
