On May 16th Gennady “GGG” Golovkin will defend his WBA, IBO and Interim WBC titles, in Los Angeles at The “Fabulous” Forum. He takes on the No.2 ranked Willie “The Mongoose” Monroe Jr., live on HBO.
P4P ranked and undefeated the 33-year-old from Kazakhstan, gave his thought’s on future fights at 160lbs and against Floyd Mayweather.
Golovkin (32-0, 29 KOs) has amassed Worldwide appeal in, meticulously and brutally, knocking out all opponents in his fourteen middleweight world title fights. He is seen by many, as the only genuine opposition for Floyd Mayweather Jr.; who recently out-pointed Manny Pacquiao.
Golovkin’s thoughts on the recent Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight
Everybody wanted the fight for the last five years. I think Floyd’s too smart. This is Floyd’s style; he doesn’t take too many shots. Floyd’s too smart, he’s a great boxer, he’s number one in the world.
Pacquiao, I think he loses control of the fight. He could not do anything against Floyd. Pacquiao is very good, but it was a very smart fight for Floyd.
Golovkin on whether he’d like to fight Floyd Mayweather
Of course, it is my dream fight. Obviously, Floyd, he is a great champion, and a little bit different style. Floyd, he’s a smart guy. He does a lot of moving. For my style, a little bit different, I like drama show, I like real fight, like close fight. I want show, big show; big drama show!
Golovkin on future opponents
Right now, my focus is on 160. My goal is to hold all the belts. Absolutely, I hope for a big fight with Miguel (Cotto) because he has the WBC title, I have the WBC interim belt, and of course I want a unification fight with Andy Lee. I think he’s ready and, of course, my dream fight is against Floyd.
Golovkin on next opponent Willie Monroe Jr.
I feel great. I feel good now. This fight is really important for my career, and for everybody, for my people, for my team. Thank you very much for my people. It’s very important for me, this fight with Willie, right now my focus is on Willie Monroe because he’s a great champion, he’s a great challenger for me and he may be next champion. Every fight is important for me.
