The winner of Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez v Amir Khan is mandated to face Gennady Golovkin and the contracts are signed, says Golovkin's promoter Tom Loeffler.

 

WBA 'Super', IBF and WBC 'interim' world middleweight champion Golovkin (34-0-KO31) defends his IBF strap against mandatory challenger Dominic Wade in California on April 23, while Britain's Khan (31-3-KO19) takes on WBC champion Alvarez (46-1-1-KO32) two weeks later in Las Vegas.

 

Loeffler revealed that a deal is already in place for the heavy-hitting Kazakh to try to add another belt to his collection but also opened the door to a fight with current WBA holder, Daniel Jacobs (31-1-KO28).

Re: Gennady Golovkin to face winner of Saul Alvarez v Amir Khan

 

No mention of a catchweight. The WBC seems to let Canelito do whatever he wants, so a CW wouldn't surprise me.

 

If it's at 160, I expect Canelito will just dump the WBC belt in the trash.

 

Kahn? the thought of him vs Golovkin is laughable. You can't even seriously etertain the concept.

 

 

Well, one way or another, at least GGG will finally officially be the MW champion. That should help force Jacobs into the ring. Billy Joe will continue to hide under a rock, and who really cares....
