By Luke Furman

WBA/IBO middleweight champion Gennady 'GGG' Golovkin (28-0, 25KOs) could see the possibility of facing Andre Ward (27-0, 14KOs), the WBA champion at super middleweight, in the future. Golovkin returns on February 1 in Monte Carlo against Osumanu Adama. Golovkin seems to be focused on cleaning out the middleweight division, and then he'll consider the idea of moving up in weight to face Ward, who will be the odds-on favorite in the fight.

"First, I need the upcoming fight in February to be successful. I believe that I now have an excellent [strategic layout] for next year. And regarding the future, I'm hoping that a fight takes place with Ward, but now is not the time. The fight is [a] realistic [idea], but not right now," Gennady Golovkin said to Vesti.ru.
