Loeffler: To Me Golovkin is Undefeated, Best at 160, Beat Canelo

Former unified middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin is getting back on the horse on June 8th, when he faces big underdog Steve Rolls at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Golovkin is coming off the first loss of his pro career, when he lost a close twelve round majority decision to Canelo Alvarez last September in Las Vegas.

The two fighters fought to a controversial twelve round split draw in September of 2017.

Promoter Tom Loeffler of GGG Promotions feels confident that his boxer not only won the first fight, but also won the second fight.

In his view, Golovkin (38-1-1, 34 KOs) is still an undefeated fighter - and he expects a third fight to happen in the near future - if Golovkin beats Rolls and Canelo defeats Daniel Jacobs on May 4th.

“I know there’re a lot of opinions on who won the two fights with Canelo – we certainly have our opinion, and that he’s still undefeated and still should be considered the best middleweight in the world, but we consider him the people’s champion. This is really the return of the people’s champion," Loeffler said.

“GGG has sold out MSG twice, The Forum twice. He sold out T-Mobile Arena twice. And he sold out The O2 Arena. He is truly a global ambassador for the sport. In my mind, he is still best middleweight in the world.

“No matter which day that Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez fight again, it will be a Mexican holiday. Regardless of the date on the calendar.”

Golovkin is also confident that a third contest will take place. In order to secure the trilogy, he signed a six fight agreement with streaming service DAZN, who also have Canelo under an eleven fight contract.

“Everyone wants to see that fight. I want that fight, we want that fight. Everyone understands why it is important that the third fight happens so that we can have a definitive conclusion,” Golovkin said.

[QUOTE=Eff Pandas;19688701]Yea f#cking hell man [B][SIZE="3"]GGG is driving me crazy with not going to Canelo's body. Thats a classic tactic to use on a guy with stamina issues. Abel is a stupid genius I think. Guy is obviously a really…
