Loeffler: I Wish Charlo Well, With a Guy GGG KO'd 3 Years Ago!

By Lem Satterfield

During a recent interview with, Gennady Golovkin’s promoter, Tom Loeffler, said a fight with interim WBC 160-pound champion Jermall Charlo “doesn’t make sense,” adding, “that’s not going to happen.”

Charlo’s trainer, Ronnie Shields, believes Golovkin and his 160-pound counterparts fear “The Hit Man.”

The 36-year-old Golovkin (38-1-1, 34 KOs) 1-1-1 in his past three fights, having won a disputed unanimous decision over Daniel Jacobs (35-2, 29 KOs) in March 2017 that ended “GGG’s” 23-fight, nine-year stoppage streak, and lost his IBO, WBC and “super” WBA 160-pound titles by split-decision to Canelo Alvarez (50-1-1, 34 KOs) last month in a rematch of their draw from September 2017.

The switch-hitting Jacobs (35-2, 29 KOs) has won three straight comprised of unanimous decisions in November and April against previously unbeatens Luis Arias and Maciej Sulecki, and last month’s IBF title-winning split-decision over Sergiy Derevyanchenko.

Alvarez has signed a $365 million multi-fight deal with the streaming service DAZN and will pursue a third crown in as many divisions on December 15 against 168-pound Rocky Fielding, but retains his middleweight championships.

The 28-year-old Charlo (27-0, 21 KOs) is after his first defense and fourth straight stoppage victory against southpaw two-time title challenger Willie Monroe (23-3, 6 KOs) at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, on December 22.

Charlo will become a mandatory for a WBC title eliminator against Golovkin should he defeat Monroe, who was floored three times during a sixth-round stoppage loss to Golovkin in May 2015.

A network free agent, Golovkin is considering his options, none of which include Charlo, according to Loeffler.

“We wish Charlo well in his fight scheduled against a tricky guy [Monroe] that GGG beat three years ago in the sixth round…We’re just working on the best deal for GGG right now,” said Loeffler in a text message to

“He just returned from Kazakhstan where he spent time with his family. He is a national hero there and they all believe he should still be champion…His popularity is higher now than ever before and the fans are looking forward to seeing him back in the ring.”

[QUOTE=j0zef;19249331]Make no mistake about it - Jermall doesn't want this fight either. He hasn't said a word since it was announced. He's mandatory to Canelo, which is a less dangerous fight with 3x the purse and 2 belts on the…

Ggg going to 168 after all that fluff about being unified at 160/only fighting at 160 would just prove he ducked ward.
