Gennady Golovkin Meets With Promoter, Discusses Future Plans

By Steve Kim

Tom Loeffler met with former middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin on Tuesday afternoon to discuss his future.

On September 15th, Golovkin (38-1-1, 34 KOs) lost his WBA, IBO, WBC middleweight titles via a twelve round majority decision to Mexican star Saul "Canelo" Alvarez in Las Vegas at the T-Mobile Arena.

"He's just taking some time off, reflecting on everything. He hasn't said when he wants to fight again. He's still very disappointed with the decision, as we all are," Loeffler told after his lunch meeting with Golovkin.

Loeffler stated that in his opinion, "I don't think he's going to fight(again) this year."

As for the possibility of a third chapter with Canelo - "That's the biggest fight still in boxing. So I think that would be everyone's priority, to see when a third fight can be made," said Loeffler.

"Fans are the lifeblood of the sport and they were very unhappy with the decision so they would want to see a third fight There was more outcry over this fight over the first fight because this is the fight that actually took his titles away."

Golovkin, rallied in the late rounds versus 'Canelo' but lost by the fight by the scores of 114-114 and 115-113 twice. The two judges (Dave Moretti and Steve Weisfeld) who gave the fight to the Mexican star scored the 12th round for Alvarez, which raised few eyebrows.

"The fans, you see them on social media, they all believe Gennady won the fight or at worst should've kept his titles," said Loeffler.

The first contest, which also took place at T-Mobile in September 2017, saw the contest end in a controversial twelve round draw.

Canelo is discussing the possibility of fighting again on December 15th, but that scenario has yet to be fully determined.
