It´s on: after some apparently tough and difficult negotiations it´s now a fact that WBA standard middleweight champ Gennady Golovkin will defend the title October 15 in Almaty, Kazakhstan, against Lajuan Simon. The deal was almost done, then it seemed to be off but it's now on again with Delta Box Promotion staging the event that will feature cruiserweights Isa Akberbaev and Zapir Rasulov on the undercard. It will be televised live in Kazakhstan, Russia and Ukraine.
 
Team Golovkin are also pressuring the WBA for a status on being the mandatory challenger for "super champion" Felix Sturm and they have also made it public that negotiations for a "unification" fight against interim -ruler Hassan N´Dam are off - a move that has to do with the promotional difficulties that appears to surround N´Dam.

The WBA should do the right thing and force N'Jikam and/or Sturm to fight Golovkin. But the WBA is the very worst sanctioning organization, so they never will.

You might have something. Pirog keeps talking about wanting a big fight and yet, like Golovkin, he is defending again against a softy. Why not make Pirog-Golovkin. It would be a great fight. The reality is Sturm, N'Dam and Chavez aren't going near these guys. Geale maybe, and Martinez maybe once ...

Tough spot for Golovkin. If he fights a top fighter and beats him impressively then Sturm will never face him. Fight some complete bums and make it hard to judge his talent and maybe he gets the big money fight. However, he's gonna take schtick from the fans for going that route.

sucks to hear the ndamn fight couldn't be made. a fight with sturm would be awesome, not sure if he's rematching macklin or not. this fight doesn't do much for gennady though, this simon guy's last fight was a sd loss in 2010, to a guy with like 6 losses.
