Golovkin returns to action this weekend against unbeaten American Dominic Wade. Although there has been little buzz this week in the fight business ahead of one of boxing's most exciting knockout artists' latest fights, perhaps largely due to UFC star Conor McGregor's massive social media eruption, middleweight boxing kingpin Gennady Golovkin still appears to be in his usual relaxed and…

Canelo next faces the UK’s Amir Khan on May 7th at the newly constructed T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and should he win, one would suspect a Golovkin collision will be even more called for by boxing fans.
Golovkin (34-0-31KO) speaking with Fight Hype this week touched on Canelo:
“He’s not serious. He’s middleweight champion, middleweight is 160lbs. 155lbs, why not 140lbs? It’s crazy.”
“Canelo is a great champion, I need big fights like Canelo – a big name like Canelo.”
