Default Do you think Golovkin would come to the UK ?

To fight Barker if Eddie Hearn made him an offer?

It's not like he has to fear getting robbed, so why not?!

Money talks (even if it has a British accent)

i think golovkin is the sort of fighter who will fight anyone anywhere, would rather see him fight macklin than barker though

This, I'm sure he'd fight Barker here if the money was right, it would be a good contest too IMO.

I'd rather see the Macklin fight too, styles should mash well together

English accent pal.

No such thing as a British accent.

Fat Dan said on his report of Golovkin-Rosado today that HBO are looking to sign Golovkin to a multi fight deal with them. K2 say he is going to be back out in march. I'm sure Barker can have it if he wants even though he said in an interview on sky text today that Golovkin is the guy you would want to swerve at 160.

I don't like that fight for Barker, he went the tough route taking on Martinez, I'd leave Golovkin for the time being and go for Pirog or even better Geale. He's unlikely to get more than one more shot at a world title again so maybe best to pick carefully. That said, Barker would have a good reach and height advantage and a good style to frustrate Golovkin.

Rosado had 2" height advantage and 3" reach advantage. Just saying, i know Barker is much better but having reach and height over Golovkin won't mean much. Geale is the best fight for Barker.
