My hunch would be Macklin in December on HBO.
A great notch in his belt and KOing the Knife in brutal fashion will certainly make another huge statement, but I think he really needs to enforce the Geale fight. If Geale refuses the WBA will strip him and pit Golovkin with a top 5 ranked guy for the vacant Super Title. He really needs that bargaining chip for the big money he's gonna need to generate to get those other big names in the ring with him.
