Gennady Golovkin ‘would love’ to knockout Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

Abel Sanchez told World Boxing News on Monday that a match pitting Gennady Golovkin against former WBC middleweight titlist Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. would be “a great TV fight.”

The 31-year-old Golovkin (29-0, 26 KOs) was tentatively slated to throw fists with 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.

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 scraps.

Meanwhile, Chavez (48-1-1-1, 32 KOs) 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.

“We would love a fight between Gennady and Chavez Jr,” said Sanchez, who trains Golovkin.

“I think the style match-up would be perfect and it’s a great TV fight. If it’s done, it will be at The Forum in LA and it would follow in the tradition of memorable events at a great boxing venue. I really hope an agreement can come to terms for this fight to happen on July 12.”

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.

Nevertheless, provided “an agreement can come,” expect Gennady Golovkin to brutalize Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. into submission this summer.
