OKBET BOXING : WBA – Gennady Golovkin vs Erislandy Lara
OKBET BOXING – OKBET SPORTSBOOK
The WBA has mandated that middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin defend his title against Erislandy Lara.
The negotiating session begins today and ends on October 23 in an attempt to reach an agreement. If Golovkin (42-2-1) and Lara have not reached an agreement by that time, a purse bid will be held.
It is quite improbable that the 40-year-old Golovkin would agree to face Lara (29-3-3, 17 KOs) at this point in his career, given that he just lost to Canelo Alvarez.
Golovkin will very certainly relinquish the WBA 160-pound belt as his next step, considering it as a hot potato he must dispose of.
Even if the 39-year-old Lara is no longer the boxer he once was, he is still competing at a higher level than Golovkin, and it would be just as tough for him as his bout with Canelo.
Chris Mannix suggested to DAZN’s JABS what Gennadiy Golovkin should do after his defeat at the hands of Canelo Alvarez. “Golovkin has talked about a worldwide tour, fighting in his native Kazakhstan, fighting in Australia, and maybe fighting in the UK,” Mannix said. “Golovkin has talked about fighting in his native Kazakhstan.”
“What I’m not sure I want to see is Golovkin competing at a top level once again,” the commentator said. If Golovkin was fighting at 160 pounds, I’m not sure if I’d want to watch him take on Jermall Charlo or even Jaime Munguia or Demetrius Andrade. I’m not even sure I want to see him fight Demetrius Andrade.
“He’s not shot as a fighter, but he’s not even close to what he used to be,” the trainer said. We observed that he was unable to draw the trigger, particularly in the opening half of his bout against Canelo.
“When he’s coming up against younger people, he pulls his punches, and he’s not as ready to throw the right hand as he was in the past. ” “When he was younger, he was more willing to unleash the right hand. One of the finest middleweights of this generation going out in such a manner is the very last thing I want to see happen. Going out by submitting to a younger competitor on a lower stage and accepting a pounding from them,” said Mannix.
“I suppose they have for some time now,” stated Mannix in response to the question of whether or not boxers want to fight Golovkin. “Jermall Charlo has been throwing Golovkin under the bus for some time.
“You went back two or three years; reps from Golden Boy were telling me that they would have placed Jaime Munguia in with Gennadiy Golovkin back then if they could have. “You got back in time.” Boxers are very aware of their surroundings.
