TWO DAYS after his stoppage win over Kell Brook on September 10, Gennady Golovkin was ordered by the WBA to fight Danny Jacobs next.

‘GGG’ – who holds the WBC and IBF titles as well as the WBA belt – has made it clear his immediate priority is a fight with Canelo Alvarez, though a hand injury the Mexican suffered during his recent win over Liam Smith will sideline him for the remainder of the year.

Incidentally, that could pave the way for Golovkin to fight Jacobs later this year due to HBO’s schedule. The broadcasters had December 10 penciled in for Canelo’s next fight, with Golovkin’s scheduled to air a few weeks later.
