Golovkin looking to move on

By Wolfgang Schiffbauer

Highly regarded middleweight contender Gennady Golovkin says he will not honor his contract with promoter Universum Box-Promotion/Spotlight Boxing. “Bouts against well-known and interesting opponents were held out in prospect,” Golovkin said. “But I haven’t got such a fight so far. A possible fight against WBC interim champ Sebastian Zbik was rejected because Universum allegedly has other priorities. Even the current offer to fight Felix Sturm for a world title is, in my opinion, nothing but smoke and mirrors. Sturm said over and over again that he would never again box for Universum.” Golovkin won a silver medal at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, ending a truly great amateur career. He turned pro in 2006 under the Universum/Spotlight-banner and is currently undefeated in 18 bouts, with 15 wins coming by way of knockout. His last ring appearance was a second round KO victory over previously unbeaten Mikhail Makarov in November. He is rated no. 1 by the WBC and the WBO, 2 by the WBA and 6 by the IBF. A statement from Universum might follow soon.
