The middleweight champion of the CMB, Jermall charlo, proposed to Gennadiy Golovkin, monarch of the FIB, hold a 160-pound unification fight, so he’s already sent the first message.
“Let’s make it happen”, said Charlo on their social networks. “I can add GGG, because look what I did to (Sergiy) Derevyanchenko, who they said had a bad time with him.” The American does not want to see himself as a profiteer when confronting a veteran boxer, «But he has in his possession the IBF belt that I need«. The Kazakh is 39 years old and will turn 40 next April.
“I just don’t want to pretend to pick an older fighter (Golovkin) and make it look like I’m going for a weaker fighter, but he has a belt.”, he pointed Charlo and expanded: It’s time to unify before he (Golovkin) runs out of gas, then I’m here to fight him. As I say, my legacy is at stake. So I fight for my legacy, and I fight for the people who love me, and that’s what I’m doing. “
