Stevens camp rejects Golovkin offer

Update: Tom Loeffler, Managing Director of K2 Promotions, informed that the offer was made and “we are waiting for the response which should be after this weekend.” Meanwhile, after some earlier Twitter posturing by Stevens and Main Events that created a firestorm of outrage, Main Events has tweeted that the offer is still under consideration.

On a conference call prior to his recent fight with Saul Roman, middleweight contender Curtis “Showtime” Stevens (25-3, 18 KOs) had some words for WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (27-0, 24 KOs):

“I’m ready right now. If it was up to me, I’d fight a champion right now. But the question is, do they want to give me a shot? I’m high risk. Nobody wants to get in there and get hit by me. If it was up to me, I’d fight Gennady Golovkin because he’s the most feared middleweight. I’m calling him out. People are scared to fight him, I’m asking to fight him.”

After Stevens annihilated Roman, the offer did come from the Golovkin camp for a November HBO clash on Stevens’ home turf in New York City (reportedly for the same $300,000 purse paid to Golovkin’s previous opponent Matthew Macklin). However Stevens’ promoter Main Events has rejected that offer.

Stevens put it more bluntly.
