The undefeated Kazakhstani boxer added that his team has not been able to agree on a fight with Julio Cesar Chavez Jr or Saul “Canelo” Alvarez yet.
In turn, Alvarez said that he wanted to fight against Golovkin.
“Golovkin is a great fighter, very strong, and at this time everyone is afraid of him because he is knocking everyone out. But, you also have to take a look at who he is knocking out. The most important thing is that he is a great fighter. I did some sparring with him, he is very strong. Yes, I’d like to (fight him),” Canelo said.
