GGG expects a huge 2015


By Dan Rafael | ESPN.com

CARSON, Calif. -- Middleweight titleholder Gennady Golovkin fought four times in his breakout 2013 and hoped to do it again this year. But when his father died unexpectedly, Golovkin withdrew from an April fight, leaving him with only three appearances this year.

GGG knocked out Osumanu Adama in February, Daniel Geale in July and returns to make his 12th title defense against Marco Antonio Rubio (59-6-1, 51 KOs) on Saturday night (HBO, 10 ET/PT) at the sold-out StubHub Center. But next year, Golovkin (30-0, 27 KOs), one of the busiest elite fighters in the sport, has designs on another four-fight year.

“Right now I am focused on Rubio. He’s a strong guy,” Golovkin said. “He is good experience for me. This is my first fight in California, so it’s a big step for me, a big deal for me. But I am ready for a unification fight. After this fight I hope so for a unification. I need Canelo [Alvarez]-[Miguel] Cotto first and then, of course, I want the winner. But [Julio Cesar] Chavez Jr., Andre Ward, Carl Froch. Bring me big fight.”.....

Agreed and i think Carls wrapping it up anyway. I do hope he gets the Chavez fight but other than that he should hang them up. He doesnt need DeGale and GGG or Ward beat him handily.

Of course. His team agreed with you as well.

Froch said is the Chavez Jr. fight doesn't come off, he will likely retire so that's one less possible opponent for GGG.

I think Froch beats GGG. GGG can't fight going backwards very well and Froch would definitely test that.

The best match would be GGG/Froch because that would be a true measuring stick of where GGG is. Ward/GGG is a fight I just don't believe gets made. I'll be glad if it does though.

Tom Loeffler tells me that GGG is willing to face Bernard Hopkins at 175 in June. He says they are serious about this #boxing

If Bernard somehow survives Kovalev, I would be VERY interested in a GGG fight.

Do you think GGG would be able to handle the weight?  Thats a big jump.

The real question is, would Hopkins body hold up? Pretty sure Hopkins gets destroyed vs GGG at any weight.
