Should Gennady "GGG" Golovkin (32-0, 29KOs) secure another victory on Saturday night against Willie Monroe Jr. at The Forum in Los Angeles, he will fall in line to fight the likely fight between superstars Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Miguel Cotto, according to World Boxing Council [WBC] President Mauricio Sulaiman.
Golovkin holds the WBA/IBO world titles but he is also the WBC interim-middleweight champion and the mandatory challenger to Cotto.
Cotto will defend his title on June 6th against former champion Daniel Geale at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
It seems the WBC will allow a Cotto-Canelo fight to go forward without penalty. The fight is rumored for the fall, but the winner will have to face Golovkin next.
"Golovkin is our interim-champion and in the event that he is going to come out victorious in this fight [with Monroe], he must face Miguel Cotto for the absolute [WBC] world title of the middleweight division. If a fight between Cotto and Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez happens, then the winner of this contest would become the one who would go against Golovkin for the world title," Sulaiman explained to ESPN Deportes.
