Fans ‘will be treated to’ watching Gennady Golovkin knockout Chavez Jr.

Abel Sanchez told World Boxing News on Friday that Gennady Golovkin has resumed training and is excited to throw fists with former WBC middleweight titlist Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

Meeting at 168 pounds, the 5-foot-11 Golovkin (29-0, 26 KOs) is tentatively slated to face the 6-foot-1 Chavez (48-1-1-1, 32 KOs) on July 19 at The Forum in Inglewood, California.

The 32-year-old Golovkin was readying to battle Irishman Andy Lee on April 26 at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Sadly, Golovkin withdrew from the bout and decided to take an extended break following the death of his father on February 18.

“Since his Kazakhstan traditional mourning period is over, Gennady realizes it’s time to get back to work,” said Sanchez, who trains Golovkin. “So, hopefully, we will be treated to a historical event with Chavez Jr. at the fabulous Forum of Los Angeles in the summer.”

GGG last vacated the squared circle on February 1 after successfully defending the WBA and IBO middleweight belts versus an overwhelmed Osumanu Adama.

Golovkin, who has now recorded 16 consecutive knockouts, floored the 33-year-old Adama (22-4, 16 KOs) in the first and sixth rounds.

Sensing a beaten man, the powerful Russian mercilessly stalked Adama and again bullied the challenger to the canvas with a savage hook in the seventh frame.

Referee Louis Pabon compassionately halted the lopsided beating at 1:20 of the decisive round.

A punishing, ferocious and accurate slugger, Golovkin has never been toppled in over 375 contests.

Meanwhile, Chavez dominated Bryan Vera to earn a unanimous decision in their March 1 rematch at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

Constantly landing overhand rights, Chavez officially trumped Vera (23-8, 14 KOs) by scores of 114-113, 117-110 and 117-110.

In stark contrast to the Kazakh bruiser, Chavez Jr. is notorious for possessing a diligence comparable to Jeffrey Lebowki’s.

Born into wealth, Chavez has been pinched juicing, arrested driving drunk, and suspended for a positive marijuana test over the past four years.

Strictly because “The Son of the Legend” is blessed with cement fists and a granite chin, a fight between Chavez Jr. and Golovkin would be intriguing.

Regardless, Gennady Golovkin would brutalize Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. into submission “at the fabulous Forum of Los Angeles in the summer.”
