Gennady Golovkin says he went with the platform that provided him with the most options.
In this interview with Fight Hub TV, former middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin talks a bit about his motivations for signing with DAZN and gives his quick thoughts on the Canelo-Jacobs fight. Check it out…
Golovkin on how he’s been feeling with this time away from the sport:
“I had beautiful time. You know, I stayed with my family, enjoyed my time with my family. I have a good life.
“I feel not bad right now. Seriously, I have beautiful life. I have real life.”
Golovkin on why he chose DAZN instead of PBC or ESPN:
“I had a lot of time [to think]. I had good experience from boxing. Probably DAZN, he give me more choices. You know…I just wanna bring my GGG team, I wanna bring my GGG promotions to home of boxing. Right now DAZN is home for boxing. Just I want my fans — bring my fans, I want to bring my people, I want to bring close to boxing.”
On if having potential opponents like Canelo, Jacobs, and Andrade was a motivating factor:
“Absolutely, yeah. Absolutely. Just everybody, because I told you just I’m open for anybody. Just, really, I want big fight. I’m ready.”
On what he thinks of the Canelo-Jacobs fight:
“I don’t know, really. I don’t know who’s won. [It’s a hard fight] probably.
“Both is good boxers, just little bit different strategy, like, you know, styles. Just very tough fight.”
On if he thinks he’ll fight Canelo for a third time in September:
“I hope so. I hope so. Nobody knows. I don’t know, maybe after first fight I can’t fight. Just maybe Daniel beats him. Nobody knows. We talk a lot, we have a good deal, why not? If you people real want watch, of course we bring.”
