Hearn Loves The Sound of Carl Froch-Gennady Golovkin

By Edward Chaykovsky

Promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom tells Adam Norman of Sky Sports that a fight between IBF/WBA super middleweight champion Carl Froch (31-2, 22KOs), and IBO/WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (27-0, 24KOs), is a fight that could be made for next year. Froch is likely to return in late November or early December with Mikkel Kessler, WBC champion Sakio Bika and former British champion George Groves as possible opponents.

"Golovkin is one of most widely avoided fighters on the planet and fair play to Macklin for stepping up, but Golovkin is a freak of nature. He's a beast," he told Sky Sports. "According to HBO he'd be willing to step up to super-middleweight and a fight with Carl Froch would just be epic. Froch, granite chin, Golovkin one of the biggest pound-for-pound punchers in the world. Carl Froch will fight any man. Whilst Golovkin is largely avoided Froch will quite willingly step up and ideally that is a fight that could happen in the middle of 2014."

Golovkin is so good, and 160 is so weak that he will have to go to 168 before we really see someone push the limits of GGG. Arum isn't letting his cash cow JCC get demolished, Dibella wont let martinez…
