Gennadiy Golovkin responds to Oscar De La Hoya’s Twitter taunts

Golovkin shared his thoughts on De La Hoya’s comments following his win over Steve Rolls.

During Gennadiy Golovkin’s post-fight press conference following his knockout win over Steve Rolls, a reporter asked Golovkin for his thoughts on Oscar De La Hoya’s provocative tweet, telling Golovkin that he needs to beat a real fighter and that Canelo is his boss...

Golovkin on Oscar’s comments:

“He talk so much, he back talk — I’m not thinking about what he said, Oscar,” Golovkin began.

“I’m not really interested in what Oscar is doing or saying, I’m not really interested in that at all,” he would continue through an interpreter.

“I don’t really like following men, you know. I’m not about following men at all.”

On if he’s planning to respond to Oscar’s tweet in kind:

“What do you think I should write him back?” Golovkin asked sarcastically. “You look good, you smart guy?

“Come on! He doesn’t know me. Just forget it. This is hype, this is hype today. Oscar [tweeting], just forget it.”
