GGG Meets With DAZN, May Be Near Deal

Gennady Golovkin’s time as a free agent looks to be coming to an end, as the former unified middleweight champion had a multi-hour meeting on Wednesday in Los Angeles.

Golovkin spoke with both DAZN chairman John Skipper and Matchroom Boxing leader Eddie Hearn about bringing GGG to the digital platform, and according to the Ring Magazine’s Mike Coppinger, Golovkin would ink a two-fight deal that would see a guaranteed eight figures a fight.


 

The Kazakh fighter has kept mum about his next moves since his loss to Canelo Alvarez in September in a rematch of their controversial draw in 2017.

Both men would end their long-term relationship with HBO following the September fight in Las Vegas, with Alvarez going to DAZN for a record-setting 11-fight $365 million contract.

If Golovkin joins DAZN, bypassing deals from PBC (Showtime/FOX) and ESPN, he would not only join longtime rival Alvarez, but former opponent Daniel Jacobs, unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, potential opponent Demetrius Andrade, and other world championship caliber fighters.
