Gennady Golovkin Body Blow KO Matthew Macklin

What makes this fight interesting is GGG would be moving up in weight.

You never know how a fighter’s power will carry as he moves up in weight. GGG is a machine at 160, but could he take out the granite chin JCC at 168?

We may fight out soon according to the LA Times.

Unbeaten middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin wants to accept former middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.’s offer of a summer fight, with promoters for each boxer targeting a July 12 bout at the Forum in Inglewood.

Golovkin (29-0, 26 knockouts) pulled out of a late April title defense against Andy Lee to follow his country’s ritual of a 40-day mourning period after the late-February death of his father in Kazakhstan.

Chavez (48-1-1, 32 KOs) looked strong in winning a unanimous decision over Bryan Vera on Saturday night in San Antonio, with Golovkin’s Big Bear-based trainer Abel Sanchez and promoter Tom Loeffler in attendance.
