WBA: Golovkin's Request For Super Champion Denied

By Hilmar Rojas

The Championships Committee of the World Boxing Association has made a decision that Gennady Golovkin will continue forward as the "regular" champion. A request made by the middleweight champion, [for super champion status], was denied for the moment due to the fact he was already granted special permission to take a fight prior to his mandatory commitment.

However, even thought he was denied the status of super champion, he might receive such a status at a later date.

In the same division, on December 21, the fight between Juan Camilo Novoa and Dmitry Chudinov will be ruled as an elimination clash for the interim title. Chidinov won by TKO and will be recognized as the mandatory challenger [to Murray's status?] starting on May 2014.

Meanwhile, Martin Murray is still the WBA's Interim champion.

[QUOTE=Koba-Grozny;14082650]The super helps by letting him fight his mandos less often - in effect it means that HBO can air the fights they want him in (GGG - Murray) rather than having to 'waste' slots on fights they think people…

[QUOTE=hougigo;14080534]How does getting the super help? And Murray will absolutely turn down a 75-25 purse bid If that where to happen, Murray would've been stripped... as he should have been after not fighting after Martinez. Geale is free too, but…

[QUOTE=hougigo;14081071]Chudinov thought he won the interim while Murray was supposedly stripped while also fighting for the regular in February.... The Chudinov fight is evidently an eliminator...for the interim belt... THE HELL!?[/QUOTE] They would do whatever it takes to minimise Golovkin,…
