GENNADY GOLOVKIN has so far looked imperious in the ring, but – having recently swatted aside Dominic Wade – the destructive Kazakh needs a defining fight.

We were ringside to watch the two-round sacrifice of IBF mandatory challenger Wade, and urge for Golovkin’s fellow leading middleweights (and their respective teams) to put the 34-year-old’s fearsome reputation to the test.

Pound for pound king Roman Gonzalez dominated McWilliams Arroyo in the co-feature, though did not impress as much as he has in recent outings. Regardless, the brilliant Nicaraguan has myriad options ahead of him, particularly at higher weights.

James DeGale travels to Washington at the weekend to defend his IBF super-middleweight crown against Rogelio Medina, while Badou Jack defends his WBC strap against former DeGale victim Lucian Bute on the same card. The winners of the two fights are set to meet in the summer, and we preview the card.

In his guest column, John Scully calls for boxers who fail drugs tests to be banned from the sport, and even feels the infringement should be punishable by jail time. We also speak to David Price, who reacts to the revelation that Erkan Teper – a drugs cheat – is ranked third in the world by the IBF.
