From Sean Jones: A deal was designed to 3 WBA, #8 WBO Brandon Adams (21-2, 13 KOs) because the opponent for former IBF/IBO/WBA/WBC middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin’s next struggle in June on DAZN, according to Mike Coppinger. There are other boxers that are also being contemplated for GGG’another struggle, but the 29-year-old Adams is reputed to have been awarded an offer. Adams has won his past 4 fights since losing to Thompson with a second round knockout in might 2015.
It seems sensible why Golovkin would face some body like Brandon Adams on DAZN instead of somebody who could potentially give him some issues including WBO winner Demetrius Andrade, Jermall Charlo, Sergey Derevyanchenko, Billy Joe Saunders or even Jack Culcay. There’s a lot of cash to be made at the Golovkin v. Saul Canelo Alvarez trilogy struggle in September on DAZN. It’d have been a bad idea for GGG to be matched against somebody who could potentially get lucky with the ideal crew of judging and conquer Golovkin, as we watched with Canelo past September. With an alternative pair of judges working both Canelo-GGG coNFLicts, Golovkin may have won both coNFLicts instead of fighting with a 12 round draw at the very first battle and losing the second struggle.
“SOURCES: Brandon Adams was extended an offer to fight Gennady Golovkin at the former middleweight champion’s debut on DAZN,” Mike Coppinger said on his Twitter. “Adams, who won the latest iteration of this Contender, is one of a couple of titles being contemplated for its June mission against GGG. ”
The bad thing about Adams getting a struggle against Golovkin may be that the simple fact he was easily conquered by one of GGG’s beyond knock out victims Willie Monroe Jr. at 2014 at ESPN’s Boxcino tournament. It turned out to be a complete shellacking by Monroe Jr. for making Adams look awful. The next year, Monroe Jr. was knocked out in six rounds by GGG at 2015. Adams’ 2 nd round knockout loss to John Thompson also appears awful, as Thompson was conquered by Liam Smith with a 7th round knockout in 2016, after which conquered by Monroe Jr. and Eric Walker. It’d look bad if GGG were to face Adams in the place of someone else.
The exceptionally rated #2 WBC competition Kamil Szeremeta was mentioned recently as a potential competitor for GGG to resist in June. The Boxing fans are excited at the idea of watching Golovkin struggle Szeremeta, yet. The fans view this struggle for being a mismatch, and believe that Golovkin is looking to pad his record with a feeble competitor. In any event, GGG is going to have a lot of heat unless he fights someone who has any talent.
