“I was invited to take parts in films, but I avoid filming or having photo-shoots for magazine covers. I think only about boxing. Maybe I will take part in it at some point in future, I cannot completely rule out the possibility,” Golovkin said.
Golovkin noted that he would not want a career in boxing for his son. “My son will not be a boxer. It is not just a sport where you reach goals. Boxing is a life style. He would not want to be a boxer living in the same conditions I live and train. It is my life. I do what I can do the best,” Triple G of Kazakhstan said.
Golovkin’s manager Oleg German said that Gennady Golovkin clothing line would be launched in the beginning of 2015. “We have registered Gennady’s brand. At the moment we are preparing to launch a full clothing line,” German said.
The Kazakhstani boxer confirmed that he wanted to have a fight in Astana. After the press conference, Golovkin met with his fans at the Nazarbayev University. Several hundreds of people came to meet the boxer.
On February 21, 2015 Golovkin will face Martin Murray in Monte Carlo, Monaco. Golovkin KOed a Mexican boxer Marco Antonio Rubio in the second round on October 18.
