Promoter Eddie Hearn, who works with IBF/IBO middleweight champion Gennadiy Golovkin, is very interested in matching him against undefeated contender Jaime Munguia.

Munguia, who captured the WBO title at 154 and made a move to middleweight last year, is very motivated to face Golovkin.

The two boxers were at one point scheduled to fight each other in 2018, but the Nevada State Athletic Commission refused to sanction the fight - citing the inexperience at the time of Munguia.

“I think the one that stands out not just in terms of boxing but for DAZN is Golovkin vs Jaimie Munguia," Hearn told DAZN.

“I think that’s a great fight for the division, I think it’s an all-action fight. This is a big year for Gennady because he is approaching the back end of his career. He’s an unbelievable fighter and an unbelievable person, and he wants to be involved in the big fights. I think now with the global platform of DAZN, we need to be looking at all these stars."

The most lucrative fight for Golovkin is a trilogy fight with Canelo Alvarez, who currently holds the WBC, WBA super middleweight titles.

Canelo is back in the ring on Saturday, when he faces mandatory challenger Avni Yildirim in Miami, Florida.

Should he win, the Mexican superstar would then face WBO champion Billy Joe Saunders in the month of May.

Hearn is working with Canelo for his next two fights, but obviously wants expand their working relationship.

He expects a Canelo-Golovkin trilogy to eventually happen - at the super middleweight limit of 168.

“I think Canelo has made it clear that he wants to become the undisputed champion at 168. The Golovkin fight, of course, it’s there for me. It’s one of the best fights in boxing," Hearn said.

"When I go back to Canelo being his own boss, he’s really focused, and when he sets his mind to something, he wants to make sure he achieves that. It was very clear to me even before the Callum Smith fight, he wanted to make sure he won every belt in the 168-lb division.

"So he won’t be going back to 160, I don’t believe. So Gennadiy is a belt-holder at 160. It would mean Gennady would need to come up to 168, which he would be willing to do. I don’t think that fight by any means is out of the equation, but obviously, Gennady is in a position with his career where he wants those big fights as soon as possible."
