Golovkin-Macklin Card: Oosthuizen vs. Gonzales is Likely

By Rick Reeno

According to promoter Lou DiBella, discussions are going forward in a very positive manner, and a deal is likely, for IBO super middleweight champion Thomas Oosthuizen (21-0, 13 KOs) to face Brandon Gonzalez (17-0, 10 KOs) on June 29th as part of an HBO televised tripleheader. The main event would feature a middleweight fight between WBA/IBO middleweight king Gennady Golovkin (26-0, 23 KOs) and Matthew Macklin (29-4, 20 KOs).

DiBella is working out the final Golovkin-Macklin details, and he appears confident a deal will get finalized as discussions continue with Tom Loeffler of K2 Promotions. The third fight will feature junior middleweight contender Willie Nelson (20-1-1, 12 KOs). DiBella is having trouble securing an opponent for Nelson and tells BoxingScene.com that several top contenders have already turned the opportunity down.
