The boxing world has been patiently waiting and it seems as though Gennady Golovkin has finally made up his mind regarding his future.
Sources: Eddie Hearn and John Skipper meeting with Gennady Golovkin this morning in Los Angeles. Hearn feels he’ll be able to finalize terms with GGG to bring him exclusively to DAZN. Belief is it’s a two-fight offer worth eight figures per bout

GGG would be yet another marquee signing for DAZN who already boast a ridiculous lineup which includes Canelo, Anthony Joshua, Aleksandr Usyk and the newly signed Srisaket Sor Rungvisai.
Of course, Canelo has some serious business in front of him in the form of IBF Middleweight champion, Daniel Jacobs. And, WBO Middleweight champion Demetrius Andrade could be in line to face GGG on DAZN.
But, if Canelo and GGG are able to secure victories in their next bouts, a trilogy would certainly be high drama as the two look to close their rivalry with a knockout.
An interesting point to take note of is that according to Coppinger, Tom Loeffler will not be joining Team Golovkin when they head to Matchroom Boxing and DAZN.
You may remember recently that Loeffler flipped out on Twitter when Dan Rafael, Mike Coppinger and other lesser known reporters began to drop news about GGG’s future that Loeffler deemed inaccurate and inappropriate.
No official announcement has been made regarding Golovkin’s move to Matchroom or DAZN but we’ll have updates as they’re released.
