HBO Looks To Rebuild Its Boxing Programming With Frequent Fights Featuring Golovkin
Published November 1, 2013
READY TO RUMBLE: USA TODAY's Bob Velin writes Golovkin has "become one of America's best, most popular and fun-to-watch boxers." He has been "criticized at times for not fighting the top competition." But K2 Promotions Managing Dir Tom Loeffler, who promotes Golovkin, said that it is "not for lack of trying." Loeffler: "If somebody has a choice to fight somebody else, they will always take a different option (and) try to avoid Gennady." Loeffler added that as Golovkin "gains in popularity, there will be more and more calls for a fight against" the likes of Ward, Floyd Mayweather Jr., Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. or Sergio Martinez (USA TODAY, 11/1).
