Declan Warrington spoke to GGG Gennady Golovkin when the latter visited London and presents his lengthy interview in this week’s issue of Boxing News magazine. This is out now on our app and the print version is in stores on Thursday (February 11). Here is an excerpt.
THIS year, my focus is a big fight, and the biggest fight for me is Canelo Alvarez, probably this is the biggest fight for everybody: for us, for people, for boxing.
The Canelo fight is the biggest fight in boxing, the WBC has allowed him one voluntary defence [against Amir Khan on May 7], and then if he doesn’t fight me in the next fight, he has to give up the title. I’d get the WBC title [if the winner of Alvarez-Khan refused to fight], so I’d have three of the titles, and then see if [WBO ruler] Billy Joe Saunders would fight, otherwise it’s the same routine: see who else is the biggest fight.
