On Saturday night, WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin stopped former titlist Daniel Geale inside of three rounds in front of over 8,572 partisans inside of Madison Square Garden.
Following the match, Golovkin (30-0, 27 KO’s) expressed an urgency to unify the belts at 160 pounds.
“My focus is at 160 right now,” Golovkin stated. “I want a unification fight. For me, it’s very important, who’s the best in the middleweight division? Who are the champions right now? A lot of champions. Miguel Cotto, Peter Quillin, Sam Soliman. I’m ready for everybody.”
Of the aforementioned trio, it is Cotto who stands out most to the Kazakhstan native.
“Miguel Cotto,” said Golovkin. “100%, I respect him, I respect his style. This is the biggest fight for everybody. For TV, for my fans, for everybody. For boxing.”
