The top five next opponents for Gennady Golovkin

John Dennen draws up the shortlist for Golovkin's best options

1. Miguel Cotto

The Puerto Rican warlord fights Alvarez on November 28 for the WBC middleweight title. It’s a huge event for the sport and Cotto is already in the premier league of boxing stars. Cotto has also done something even Golovkin has yet to do – he dethroned the number one middleweight, Sergio Martinez when he won his title.

There would be problems making this fight, Golovkin wants to fight for a middleweight title actually at middleweight, while Cotto has been boxing at catchweights below 160lbs. Plus Cotto is nearing the end of his glittering career anyway. But it would be an unmissable event.
