Middleweight king Gennady Golovkin has reiterated his willingness to drop down in weight for a blockbuster meeting with pound for pound best Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Golovkin, who is the most feared puncher on the planet right now, has already stated the fact that he has no problems fighting at 154lbs and is super confident that if Mayweather agreed to face him that he would be the one who came out on top.
“This is an amazing fight. This is my dream fight,” Golovkin told TMZ Hollywood Sports.
“Of course I will beat him, this is boxing. This is business. One hundred percent (I will win, and) I am ready for anybody!”
Mayweather, 38, is gearing up to announce what he states is to be his last ever opponent in his final fight on Showtime in September, with the likes of Amir Khan, Keith Thurman and Kell Brook in the mix to be seleceted.
The general consensus is that ‘GGG’ is not being considered by Mayweather at this time for what will be the American’s 49th pro outing, although a fight between the two at a catchweight would certainly be the biggest out there for the world number one.
‘Money’ overcame his greatest career rival in Manny Pacquiao on May 2, making over $200m in the process, and would need to pick Golovkin over Khan, Thurman or Brook, if he wanted to generate anywhere near the interest his masterclass win over the Filipino did previously.
