Gennadiy Golovkin has exciting alternative options to Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez, says Eddie Hearn

Promoter Eddie Hearn states Gennadiy Golovkin is not”waiting or wondering” on Saul’Canelo’ Alvarez as there are loads of exciting alternatives for 2020. The Kazakh star has signed up an deal with Hearn before the next battle against Sergey Derevyanchenko to the vacant IBF title at Madison Square Garden in New York on October 5. ‘Canelo’ is now holding discussions within a November clash with Sergey Kovalev, the WBO champion, however, Alvarez isn’t the goal for Golovkin as Hearn has outlined a number of struggles for next year. “You have got to create your own moves and I believe that’s what ourselves teaming up using Golovkin was doing,” Hearn told Sky Sports. “Not wondering or waiting on Canelo. “Canelo is going to do his thing. Canelo would like to combat Kovalev and he’s made this clear. I expect that fight to take place in November. Golovkin and Derevyanchenko on October 5 fight, and you just keep going. “You have got Demetrius Andrade. I’d love Demetrius Andrade and Canelo or even Golovkin to fight. We have got Billy Joe Saunders at 168 [lbs ]. Has the ability to come back to 160 [pounds ]. Danny Jacobs is currently battling at 168, but likely could make 160. You’ve got Callum Smith as well if those guys want to go up. “I feel that the key in 2020 is get all those struggles made. Ultimately Canelo will decide who he struggles, and at the moment, Golovkin is not on that list frustratingly for us along with DAZN and also for combat fans, but Kovalev is a great fight, although I’d love to see Canelo and Golovkin. It’s a test that is great. “Let us see whether they could possibly win in October and November.” Callum Smith has been linked using a rotational super-middleweight battle against WBO title holder Billy Joe Saunders and Hearn plans to examine challenging plans for the WBA’super’ winner. “I’m due to meet next Tuesday for a chat, along with his team,” said Hearn. “We want to get him out in November, November 23rd in Liverpool. Run him out before 2020, just straight. “There is a date and conversations happening with Liverpool soccer club Anfield in May. That could be massive. That’s bucket listing stuff for Callum Smith. He’s made great money, he has won titles, but that’s the sort of event that he would like to get his teeth into next year, and I will guarantee a Anfield fight. “But he wants to get out, defend his title. John Ryder is your mandatory for that buckle, so that is a fantastic British battle also, if this may be made, and then move on into all the mega battles of 2020.” Read more:
