Pirog is probably the best fighter that is willing to fight Golovkin but I'd like Pirog to have a comeback fight first as he's coming off a serious injury.

personally i would still like to see him next vs Sturm in germany, the Daniel Geale vs Mundine winner in australia or vs the Peter Quillin -Guerreo winner in the US.

after that he should go for winner of the rematch between Chavez Jr and Martinez

I'm bored with West European Fighters and their Australian/South African counterparts. Golovkin has more opportunities in SMW and LHW than he does at MW. Fight Pirog, sure, and maybe even Geale but the big fish - Sturm, Chavez Jr., Quillin, and Sergio Martinez aren't coming.

The only interesting options I see for him that are possible are Pirog (who is Russian, a legit 160 contender), and Austin Trout at 158.

The Trout match is, I think, the best option for both fighters. Trout is looking for stardom and is a big boy at 154. GGG needs to prove he deal with quick, intelligent fighters. They are both trying to break their respective ceilings. GGG v Trout would be PPV and good for both fighters in America.

If GGG has four fights left - Trout, Pirog, Geale, Ward. Would be a campaign for sure.

After last nights performance plenty of the midrange Middlweights will be knocking at his door.

But HBO's attempt to sell us a Ward Vs. Golovkin fight failed miserably.
(By having Andre call his fight)

I dont think Golovkin should waste his time on Pirog right now. He should go for the established middleweights which are known in the US.

Peter Quillin would be perfect as his next fight.

Someone said he has to fight Rubio after Guerrero, cant make that until late this year, early next year. I think its either Pirog which is very risky or Geale in the summer.

I feel GGG vs Pirog will be next.

Geale will go down the Mundine route and I know Sturm is fighting for IBF eliminator. A Sturm bout will likely be the more financially appealing and winnable fight for Geale. So I dont see that match happening this year.

Geale is fighting Sturm (his IBF mandatory defence) next, but from what I'm hearing Golovkin vs Geale is planned for August or September.

rosado did little fighting and a lot of moving and running, trying to survive. still he was bloodied badly after rd2 and a complete mess by the end of it -mostly by the use of a jab. now, who wants to sign up for that deal. Not many

Sturm - whoops i forgot.
Pirog - I see this happening further down the road, would be nice if it happens straight away. 50 / 50 bout imo.
Chavez Jr - Not going to happen in a million years.
Geale - Apparently eager after he has dealt with Mundine, i'll believe it when i see it.
Golovkin bullies Quillin.

Golovkin was confused by a c level LMW. Love to see him vs Ndam.

Keep us informed on this, it would be refreshing.

with HBO and (according to Steve Kim) NBC sports looking to potentially air one of his fights, I think someone like Peter Manfredo Jr will get a shot in a stay-busy fight for GGG in 2013.
