The trainer of "regular" WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (22-0, 19KOs) stated in a recent interview that his fighter desires to stage a unification against WBO champion Dmitry Pirog (19-0, 15KOs), but the Russian champion's team have never sent them a proposal.

Pirog's co-promoter Kirill Pchelnik replied to Abel Sanchez.

"I don't know Abel Sánchez,and I was bewildered by his statement. We never received a proposal from Golovkin either. In this case, you can say that Gennady makes proposals to fight anyone, but not Pirog. Gennady is a very talented Boxer, but we have unequal conditions in this situation. On the one hand, we have the WBO champion and on the other side is the "regular" WBA champion, where the real WBA champion is Felix Sturm," Pchelnik said.

"Right now we have to first consider the possibility of making an interesting unification with one of the [full] champions of the WBC, WBA or IBF. At the same time, we follow the career of Golovkin and support him when he wins, but now he needs to have a few fights with some interesting adversaries to raise his popularity level.

[QUOTE=ShoulderRoll]It's funny that Pirog thinks Golovkin should fight better competition, since he himself is living off a win over a green American prospect.[/QUOTE] Considering Golovkin win over Ouma is the better win between both of them.

There should be a 160 pound single elimination tourney and Chavez can play the role of Bute by fighting guys like Manfredo while claiming to be the best.

[QUOTE=LeadUppercut]Yep, thats right, Golovkin is undeserving, and can wait in line. When he has achieved what Pirog has, then he can talk. No, wait.....[/QUOTE] haha, this is what i was going to say bro. just cause pirog has a 'belt' around his waist, that means golovkin isn't on his level or...
