Golovkin's next rival in 2018 announced

Gennady Golovkin will prepare to fight with a new rival after the bout with Canelo.

In case the Kazakh boxer Gennady Golovkin overcomes the rematch, his major goal will be to win the WBO World Champion's title in the middleweight that British boxer Billy Joe Saunders possesses, Sports.kz reports.         

According to Golovkin's promoter Tom Loeffler, they are not planning to arrange the third bout with Saul Alvares after the second one, which is expected on May, 5.

'None of the parties has discussed the third fight. Both Eric Gomes and I said that we would prepare only for the second one. The negotiations concerning the third bout failed. We agreed that the rematch winner will decide whether there is a need for the third bout. We won’t arrange the fight immediately even if its third part takes place. If Golovkin takes over, a unification bout with Billy Joe Saunders will be held', Loeffler said, whom boxingscene.com cited. 

It should be noted that the rematch between Gennady Golovkin and Alvares  is planned  to take place on May, 5.
