Gennady ‘GGG’ Golovkin will make his HBO return on July 12th; his opponent for the fights is what is shocking. ‘GGG’ is in negotiations to fight Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. at 168 lbs.
JCC is coming off a dominating performance against Bryan Vera and is surely thinking that he’s one of the elite boxers once again. Golovkin has the skills to bring Chavez Jr. back to reality.
Of course the appeal for this fight for Chavez Jr. is the huge pay day that will come to both him and GGG. HBO is looking at the Forum in LA as the site for this event and they’ll most likely make this their second PPV event of the year.
