De La Hoya Smiles at Golovkin: Good Luck With Derevyanchenko!

Golden Boy Promotions CEO Oscar De La Hoya, who promotes Mexican superstar Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, has continued to bait IBF, IBO, WBA, WBC middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin.

On Thursday, De La Hoya revealed that Canelo was "moving on" after unsuccessful negotiations with Tom Loeffler, who handles the promotional end for Golovkin.

The two boxers were scheduled to collide in a rematch on May 5th, but the fight fell out after Canelo was suspended over a pair of drug tests that came up positive for the banned substance clenbuterol.

Canelo's next fight is being targeted for September 15th as part of Mexican Independence Day weekend.

Golovkin still went forward with his HBO date on May 5th, and retained his titles by knocking out late replacement Vanes Martirosyan in two rounds at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

Canelo and Golovkin fought to controversial twelve round split draw last September at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

De La Hoya stated on Thursday that Golovkin was being difficult in the negotiations - so they were moving on

“It’s clear to us that Golovkin doesn’t want to fight Canelo,” De La Hoya said to The Ring.

“It’s clear to us that after all the demands that they made, after Canelo having to do the hair follicle test, having to enroll in VADA, having to be tested by the Nevada State Athletic Commission randomly even before he was enrolled in VADA, it’s clear that GGG is afraid.

“So we’re going to move on and I’m going to start making phone calls to (Daniel Jacobs’) people, to (Billy Joe) Saunders’ people, start making calls to (Jermall) Charlo and (Spike) O’Sullivan. (Golovkin's promoter Tom Loeffler told me GGG) doesn’t want to fight. That’s all Tom said. They’re not going have a better deal than what they have now.”

On Friday, De La Hoya took to social media to continue baiting Golovkin.

"Golovkin, good luck with Sergiy Derevyanchenko, who’s 11-0 and your IBF mandatory. The train has moved on and [we're] going after Danny Jacobs, [Billy Joe] Saunders, Spike O'Sullivan," De La Hoya stated.

Golovkin make very well have to defend his title against Derevyanchenko. The team behind the talented contender is pushing very hard to get that mandatory to happen.

There was a prior order that directed Golovkin to face Derevyanchenko - but GGG's team is attempting to get it pushed back by one more fight.

As recently reported, there was a hearing held at the IBF's offices a few days ago and the two sides were stating their individual cases with respect to the mandatory order.

The sanctioning body is expected to make a ruling in the next few days.
