According to a report from RingTV, former middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin is now in advanced talks with DAZN to join their streaming platform, per their industry sources.

Golovkin (38-1-1, 34 KOS) is currently a free agent with regards to his media outlet and now that HBO is leaving boxing, Golovkin just might the biggest ticket item on the market. Earlier this month Golovkin’s promoter, Tom Loeffler, mentioned that they have fielded a number of offers for Golovkin from Showtime, ESPN, and DAZN, and apparently DAZN is the now the leading candidate.

If Golovkin were to sign a deal with DAZN, it would keep in in the fold as a potential candidate for a number of high profile middleweights — namely Canelo Alvarez — who have recently joined the streaming service. But even aside from Canelo, Demetrius Andrade and Daniel Jacobs are potential fights that exist as viable options under that umbrella.
