share on:

Undefeated Gennady Golovkin has stayed he will welcome a fight against Billy Joe Saunders, after his victory over Kell Brook.

The Kazakh boxer retained his IBF and WBC titles with a fifth round TKO and is the undisputed WBA ‘Super’ middleweight champion.

Billy Joe Saunders is also undefeated and holds the WBO title. He has also stated he will welcome a unification bout against GGG.

Golovkin said in the aftermath of his win over Brook that he wanted to unify the middleweight division and was targeting a clash with Saunders, and he now appears ready to answer the challenge.

The 34-year-old said: “I want a fight with him and I am open for everybody I think now he’s ready.

“It’s the business, you know he talks too much. It’s a very good fight for TV and the fans. Why not?”

Boxing fans would also like to see Golovkin face Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez, but he says the Mexican is refusing to get in the ring with him.

“Of course I want a fight with him,” he said. “[There is] talk every time, everybody asks me when will I fight Canelo. It’s not my fault, it’s his fault. I’m ready. I said ‘come on’.

“Absolutely [he’s preventing the fight from happening]. Of course I want him.”
