Do you think Golovkin and Canelo will both win their next fights, and then actually fight each other?

GGG Golovkin
We ask an expert panel whether they believe Canelo vs Golovkin III will come to fruition

Paul Smith
Former British champ

I think they’ll both win and win well. Golovkin should still have enough in the tank for Ryōta Murata. Dmitry Bivol, in my opinion, just does enough and is happy doing enough. I can see that being his downfall against Alvarez. Canelo has that dislike of Golovkin, I think they both know it’s the fight that would generate the most money.

Lisa Whiteside
Commonwealth gold medallist

I think both will both win their upcoming bouts. I think Canelo will have an easier time with Dmitry Bivol than he did against Caleb Plant. Golovkin has too much experience for Ryōta Murata. But I don’t think they will have a trilogy fight, and if they do I can’t see past a Canelo win at this stage of their careers.

Joe Gallagher
Top trainer

Murata will have had great preparation. We don’t know if the inactivity will have any effect on Golovkin but I expect the power of “GGG” to come through and get the win. Bivol has really good feet, that’s a really good fight. I think Canelo will do well to get a stoppage against Bivol. I expect Canelo to come through.

Chris McKenna

I think they will both win and I think they will fight as, at the moment, it is still the most lucrative fight out there for both of them at this stage of their careers. The hype for it will grow if Golovkin looks good against Murata.
