Golovkin's Promoter Targets Four Fights For GGG in 2015

By Mike Coppinger

CARSON, Calif. -- WBA/IBO/WBC interim-middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (31-0, 28KOs) is perhaps the most active big-time fighter in the sport, one of his many redeeming qualities.

GGG fought four times in 2013 and three times in 2014. The plan is for him to fight four more times in 2015.

"He wants to fight four times a year," K2 managing director Tom Loeffler said at the post-fight news conference Saturday. " So, first fight will be in February, we can lay it out. We have another HBO date in May. That will be over here, in the states. So that will already be two fights before the first six months.

"So that's another thing that the fans appreciate ... people are either talking about his last knockout or his next fight. ... He can take a year off and say 'OK, I just made a lot of money.' But that's not his style. He knows that this is the prime of his career right now."

Who's next?! This guy is top 3 P4P right now and he WANTS to fight everyone. This is what the sport needs right now. He seems like a great dude also, with Floyd cherry picking and moronic attitude, GGG is…

[IMG][/IMG] This year wasn't as great as last year was for boxing. I have faith in Golovkin to be the man to raise the bar in 2015. :boxing::boxing::boxing:
