Golovkina took on the most profitable and spectacular competitors
The Mexican middleweight Saul Alvarez is currently the main character of his weight class, but only the fight against Gennady Golovkin from Kazakhstan will bring him the biggest profit. MMA Plus journalist Ben Smith reported in an interview about this and named the most profitable rivals for GGG, reports Prosports.kz.
"Golovkin needs big and spectacular battles, but he does not manage to win them. People do not want to see Rolls as rivals. GGG is interesting to the public in confrontation with Smith, Andrade, Jacobs or Canelo.
Kanelo earns against every opponent and can do without GGG. The biggest fee Saul gets only at Gennady. In the case of the third battle, the Mexican is considered the side of A. He has always been the star of his division. Confrontation Golovkin and Alvarez – that's the biggest sign. There is not a single confrontation that could be compared to that, "said Smith.
Recently, Eddie Hearn said the trilogy between GGG and Kanelo could take place in the fall. But Alvarez had to defend the IBF title against Sergey Derevyanchenko of Ukraine, which would falsify the date of the fight with Kazakhstan. Also, the result of the fight with Gennady is influenced by his result in the confrontation with the Canadian Steve Rolls on 8 June.
The IBF refused to issue a decree on the organization of the fight with Alvarez Derevyanchenko
