Golovkin: I'll Do 154 or 168 Only For a Big PPV Fight

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

WBA/IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (29-0, 26KOs) is focused on unifying all of the titles at 160-pounds. There are many possibilities at junior middleweight and super middleweight - but Golovkin has no interest in going down, or going up, unless the opportunity is lucrative enough to become a pay-per-view event. 

Golovkin nearly moved up in weight to face Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. - in what was going to be an HBO PPV attraction - but Chavez has ongoing issues with his promoter Top Rank and Golovkin's team forward in another direction - tow-time champion Daniel Geale (30-2, 16KOs) on Saturday night at New York's Madison Square Garden.

"Right now my focus is 160. I'm open for everyone [who is] a big fight, a pay-per-view fight. [Me fighting] at 168 or at 154 is just for a pay-per-view fight. Right now my focus is 160 and I'll stay here [at 160] and I'm open for everybody," Golovkin said.
