Golovkin-Quillin fight negotiations fail20 may 2014, 19:44
Negotiations of Gennady Golovkin and Peter Quillin fight have failed, Tengrinews report citing Oleg German, manager of the WBA and IBO champion from Kazakhstan.
According to German, Golovkin has been working with HBO for a long time, while Quillin has a contract with Showtime. The boxers could not agree on the company that would broadcast the fight. Quillin’s promoters suggested having a competition between the two channels and give the winner the right to broadcast the Golovkin-Quillin fight. But GGG’s team could not agree to that because of their binding agreement with HBO.
The manager of the Kazakhstani boxer added that Danial Geale would most likely be Golovkin’s next opponent. Negotiations with the Australian boxer are almost complete. If they agree on the fight, then the date will be announced at the press conference on June 5th in Los Angeles. The Golovkin-Geale fight will take place at Madison Square Garden.
At the moment, Golovkin is waiting for WBA's permission to postpone the middleweight title defence fight against Jarrod Fletcher.
