It appears that the Kazakh's team have immediately turned their attention to talented Australian Daniel Geale (30-2, 16) with a bout between the two now looking almost certain for July.
Whilst Chavez would be a bigger name and a bigger pay day for Golovkin many view the possible Geale bout as a better contest with the Aussie having been a former IBF/WBA unified Middleweight champion with victories over Felix Sturm, Sebastsian Sylvester and Anthony Mundine.
If the bout is signed and sealed as quickly as we assume it will then there is every chance Golovkin could have 4 fights this year, as he was hoping too at the start of the year. Interestingly there could be an opening for a Sergio Martinez bout or a Martin Murray bout later this year allowing Golovkin to tidy up the division before moving on to the Super Middleweight division sometime next year.
