Golovkin's Promoter: GGG is Biggest Fight For Froch

By Gregory Stangrit

The demand is building for a showdown between WBA/IBO middleweight Gennady Golovkin (33-0, 30KOs) and two-time super middleweight champion Carl Froch (33-2, 24KOs)

A few days ago, Triple G's promoter Tom Loeffler of K2 Promotions told BoxingScene.com that GGG had no issues with heading over to the UK or meeting Froch at 168-pounds.

Froch has been inactive since knocking out George Groves before 80,000 fans last May at Wembley Stadium.

Golovkin is one of the more active champions in the sport and tries to fight at least four times a year. He's already been in action twice in 2015, with knockouts of Martin Murray and Willie Monroe. A September return is being discussed.

"We've already asked for that fight. Gennady put in over 12,000 people in the [Forum] and Carl Froch had 80,000 people at Wembley Stadium last year. There is no question, that would be a tremendous fight. I've told Eddie Hearn many times that Gennady would move to 168 and fight [Froch], but Carl is not committed to whether he's going to fight again or whether he's going to retire. But that would be a great fight as well," Loeffler said to BoxingScene.com.

Loeffler has spoken several times to Froch's promoter, Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sport, about coming together to make a fight.

Hearn blew up the internet waves when he told Daily Mail that he spoke to Froch, who "was interested" in possible fight with Golovkin.

"This is the first time that I've heard this from Froch. But I have been talking about this with Eddie Hearn, and now I think he realizes that after all of the success achieved by Golovkin, at the moment it is the biggest fight for Froch, and Golovkin. I told Eddie that we are ready to go to England without any problems. And it's also not a problem to have it at super middleweight. HBO is very interested in this. Sky Sports will be interested. It will be a great evening of boxing," Loeffler said.

"We'll see how we can put the pieces together, but right now that fight has the potential to be great financial success - especially if we can get him in one of the football stadiums. Now we need to sit down with Eddie Hearn and discuss all the points."

Froch wants money for his final fight, if it is his final fight and i think it is. Money right hell take fight.

I'd love to see it, someone would get KTFO, not sure which though. Don't think it's likely to happen though. Froch doesn't need that kind of fight at this stage of his career and he can probably make more money…

Won't happen. Froch will retire or fight someone else. Froch really has many of you snowed, and I can't believe any of you have him in the P4P list, that is absurd. Froch is just so limited as a fighter,…

[QUOTE=MDPopescu;15715102]... Well: if the fight happens, I expect you to put some money where your mouth is... But if the fight doesn't happen? Who's to blame? Golovkin, of course, right?[/QUOTE] Oh I will. If it doesn't happen I'll blame whatever…
