    He said that the DAZN deal is close and can be announced next week

    Golovkin-Andrade is the plan for the end of May, and if he wins he can fight with the winner of Canelo-Jacobs to unify all the belts in the middleweight division in September

    If he knocks out Andrade and Canelo and finally unifies ALL the belts I hope he retires.

    Haters would complain that he is running away from the Charlo’s :D

    Also rumours say that Golovkin is not in contact anymore with Loeffler and Abel Sanchez so likely he is gonna have a new promoter and a new trainer.

    I can imagine that he had a fall out with Abel after they had a completely different game plan, and before the Canelo fight Abel was running his mouth too much and after the fight he went to the media and said “Canelo won and I’m proud of him”

    Even the biggest GGG hater Teddy Atlas was raging about the robbery, but his own coach didn’t give a **** about it.

    I don't think he has 3 more years left. I am surprised someone as knowledgeable as Hearns would think of it in terms of time, as opposed to number of fights. I would say GGG has 4 big fights left in him. That's it.

    Agreed, but a promoter will always talk like that. He wants people to think that GGG is still in the game for a while.

    I'd say 2 is more realistic.

    Sounds like he has 1 more fight left because Booboo will whoop him in to retirement.

    GGG is too old and dead at the weight. If it were @ 168 or 175 I'd probably fancy GGG to KO Booboo tbh.

    GGG is so much bigger and stronger naturally, but having to cut so much weight at an advanced age is a recipe for disaster LOL

    FFS I actually pity GGG if he has to do the same day weigh in!!!!! He will be the walking dead and will get KOed.

    But WBO doesn't tend to have a same day weigh in, maybe Booboo can sneak that in the contract!!!!

    He's got two more fights left in him. 2019 is his final year in boxing

    GGG could extend his career greatly by moving up and making sensible opponent choices

    Bringing up any of the 160lbs crowd to 168 or 175 would make sense, he would be far healthier and refreshed and could straight weight bully them like he used to do before he died at the weight.

    He could also chase lighter punching guys or guys under 6ft2, getting up above 6ft2 and the length is too great IMO especially against punchers,

    GGG would do much better against a Kovalev or Bivol than he would against a Gvozdyk, Browne or Smith.

    Even if Kovalev and Bivol would beat those guys,

    GGG still has mad power and a great chin, he just doesn't have the legs to beat the reach IMO

    He doesn't have much left in boxing because for one,he has draw and a loss against best midleweight and for two, he doesn't look interested to continue his boxing career. The bigger ego, the bigger fall down.

    No...just no James. At this point in 3G's career, and hi age, you think moving up would be a good thing?
    How many times has a fighter moved up near the end of his career only for it to blow up in their faces? And you want him to do that, and drag up a MW to fight at 168? Really?

    You're the only person in this world who thinks 3G was some weight bully. I mean...how ****in bad are your eyes dude? Do you just refuse to wear glasses? It's now a running board joke when it comes to you discussing weights... sheesh!

    I was actually one of the ones that didn't think GGG had aged as badly as people said until the second Nelo fight where frankly he looked like he was punching underwater he was that slow, yet still gave him a very close fight indeed through sheer experience and ringcraft. Be nice to see him retire now.
