Golovkin will fight in California on May 5 and they analyze a possible rival

Kazakh Gennady Golovkin, world middleweight champion releases International Federation of Boxing (FIB), World Association (WBA) and World Council (WBC), will fight in California on May 5 as a way to save the date and the preparation it acquired, said today the president of the WBC, Mexican Mauricio Sulaiman.
On that date, Golovkin would fight in Las Vegas against the Mexican Sául Álvarez, but a week ago the fight was canceled due to doping by ‘Canelo’, who must appear on April 18 before the Nevada Athletic Commission.
“Definitely the fight will not be in Las Vegas, since the city regulations say that there is no time and he is going to California,” said Sulaiman.
“(Golovkin’s promoters) are desperately looking for a rival to save the show. Golovkin deserves, after so much work and preparation, to be active, “he said.
Among the names that are handled as a possible rival is that of the Irishman Gary O’Sullivan.
«He is a good boxer, he has been classified in the Council, he must fill out the paperwork of the boxing clean to be accepted as his rival, it will be a worthy fight, hopefully it will be confirmed because Golovkin deserves to defend and endorse his title, “said the leader.
Sulaiman said that Golovkin registers a four-month preparation and that represents “total wear and tear and with 36 years that wear and tear already has an effect, it is only fair that he fight, defend his title and have activity.”
In addition to O’Sullivan, the Mexicans Jaime Munguia and Roberto García, the Americans Billy Joe Sanders, middleweight champion of the World Organization of Boxing (WBO), and Demetrius Andrade, but the one who has gained strength in the last hours is that of the Armenian Vanes Martirosyan, 32 years old and with a record of 36 wins, 21 on the fast track, three losses and a draw.
