I thought Golovkin was already the WBA champ? This superchamp business has got me all mixed up – the WBA are ridiculous. We really need Showtime or HBO to come up with a Super 6 style contest for the middleweights. However I doubt if you’d get the promoters and managers of Chavez Jr, Geale, Golovkin, Martinez, & Quillen to agree to it. It would be great for the fans if they did tho.

Vass…

W.B.A is a disgrace..How can they have a SuperChamp and a Champ…Then they strip the fighter that won the belt in the ring in Germany and award it GGG..When Geale wins the W.B.C he would be truly the undisputed champion…

Now that he’s a recognized world middleweight champion Golovkin isn’t going to wait around forever for Martinez to heal his 38-year-old knees — only to watch Sergio go off and do another Chavez fight or two — and then wait around for Mayweather or Pacquiao, for a fight Sergio will never get… Grennady can’t wait around forever for an old man like Martinez.. He also feels Peter Quillin doesn’t have the prestige of Martinez, and beating Quillin would accomplish little… 3G feels he has almost no choice but to move up in weight and go after Andre Ward — who will probably fight him because Ward wants to fight the best in the world … First step in Ward’s direction? … Edwin Rodriguez.

I wouldn`t mind this if the WBA were actually consistent. How long ago did WLad win the WBA title off Haye – and has the WBA ordered a mandatory(e.g. Povetkin)? Jones at Cruiser, Shumenov at LHW – how long ago did they win titles and where are their mandatories?

3G the true champ

The only fighter I see that would do the distance with Golovkin is Andre Ward

The world has been waiting for 3G… Let Martinez and Quillin step up…

I hope Geale beats Mundine and then makes an attempt to regain his WBA belt (though in all honesty I don’t see Geale beating Golovkin).
Though in reality, I don’t see Geale taking on Golovkin at all… I think he’ll pursue Martinez and/or Quillin. I think Golovkin’s only potential option is to try to revive the Pirog fight (i.e. Pirog is title-less now so he may be willing to fight). I’d honestly be very surprised if any of the other champions give Golovkin a shot. Martinez’ promoter chucks a funny tantrum when Golovkin is mentioned, and although Quillin says he’s not afraid of Golovkin there’s something in the way he said it as well as some interesting tales about their sparring sessions (as there have also been about Golovkin’s sparring with Alvarez and Chavez Jr) that make me doubt his promoter would allow the fight to happen.

Thats why the belts are Garbage and the Ring Championship belt is the only one that should matter

It’s obvious the WBA loves Golovkin and as such Geale is being punished for taking the money fight with Mundine due to the actions of his predecessor Felix Sturm. All they had to do was keep it as it is – with Geale as Super Champion, Golovkin as regular champion (having 2 champions is a joke BTW) – and strike a deal that the winner of Mundine Geale had to sign a fight Golovkin within 2 weeks of their bout, for a fight to take place in late May. I have no doubt Geale would look at the fight once he had some more money in the bank.

Geale knew the deal when he signed to fight Sturm. It’s his prerogative if he wants money and revenge instead of the title.
Golovkin deserves his title… he’s been waiting for over 2 years and has been ducked like plague (first by Mundine in 2010, then by Sturm for 2 years, Pirog pulled out with injury so not really a duck, and now Geale who I’d never call a ducker has looked for greener pastures).

Hey, that’s my bike!!

Geale is being punished because Sturm ducked Golovkin for 2 years. What a joke the WBA is with all their ‘interim’, ‘regular’ and ‘super’ champions. Geale is better off without this belt.

What a croc. Geale does the hard work twice I’n Germany and GGG gets a belt 4 nothing. He hasn’t fought any1 yet. The Geale Mundine fight isn’t exactly an easy 1 4 Geale. Oh well we will c what GGG brings I’n the nxt 12 2 18 months. I think people r getting a bit carried away. Wait until he has been I’n there with a smart boxer like Geale Martinez b4 u all go calling him the super champ

Martinez is the only champ in this division. I would like him to fight the other titlest in the division but doubt he will since he only wanted Chavez and now just wants Floyd so he will hop back on fighting folks that don’t deserve to be in there. But he is the champ and everyone that owns a belt are just titlest

DeGeale would’ve got beaten up badly and he knows it.

Usually hate these kind of sanctioning body machinations but now that GGG has a belt anyone who thinks they’re a champ will have to face him if they want to be taken seriously. He gives anyone in the division hell, including an aging Martinez.

I will be hard for boxers and there coaches to duck him NOW!

I can see both sides here, Golovkin wants his shot and Geale wants a big money fight! Now before the few Golovkin fans start calling Geale a coward for not facing GGG, what would you do fight Golovkin for $200,000 or Mundine for $2,000,000??? The sad thing is that in the eyes of the true boxing fans, Golovkin will still just be the interim WBA champion because he didn’t beat the true still active champion!

as far as the belts are concerned,unfortunately they are a dime a dozen these days in boxing.

ggg may be a pretty good fighter,but lets not get carried away just yet. i can remember a lot of the same things being said about Arthur Abraham a few years back,but where is he now?

Congrats to Golovkin! Becoming World CHAMP is an achievement.

skinnysteve

the list of fighters ducking Triple G is long with a lot of top names on it . one noted “champion” fly’s into a rage whenever Genady’s name is mentioned . Triple G say’s he is ready and will clean out the middleweight division .

dwc…Strum hides in Germany most of his career then Geale beats him then Geale wants to give his home country a big local fight.Now Geale cant have one defence like this they strip him…thats bull.I like Golovkin think he has talent..but this is bull and who did Golovkin really beat?Golovkin may be the real deal but this is not the way things should happen in boxing…its unfair for Geale.Geale should have had alittle more time and faced Golovkin after his first defence.Where were these people when Strum was tap dancing around his belt for years???

What about the “Super Duper Champion”? WBA… how about you just have one belt per weight class? Keep it simple.

Who cares what the WBA thinks or says, they have proved themselves the most greedy organization in boxing and that is really saying something. Golovkin will still be avoided and Geale will still avoid him.

This distinction still won’t make any difference. Triple G will still be an avoided fighter. He is one bad dude!!

Golovkin is the real deal and is putting everyone in and around the middle weight division on notice. Get this guy in the ring again soon!
