The six questions for boxing in 2016

John Dennen ponders what to look out for this year
  1. Will Saul Alvarez fight Gennady Golovkin?

It would be the biggest fight of 2016. The brutal Kazakh has declared his intention to harvest every belt going in the middleweight division. But the Mexican star has insisted he has no fear of Golovkin and the WBC are pressing for the fight to happen. Both though can take tune up bouts and another potential drawback is that Alvarez is yet to fight at middleweight. He might need more time to grow into the division. Plus, after Canelo’s thrilling win over Miguel Cotto, his popularity and earning potential are on a high. Golovkin presents a real threat to that and deal could be hard to reach.
