Gennadiy Golovkin will havethe edge taken off him this weekendsscrap with Sergiy Derevyanchenko, calls his rival Billy Joe Saunders.
Saunders believes success will come at a price tag, although 37, golovkin, can regain the vacant IBF middleweight title against Derevyanchenko on Saturday night live on Sky Sports Action.
Its a battle which, you can say, wont be skilful. It will be a scrap, Saunders told Sky Sports.
This battle is not about standing back technically, ping ping ping. This will be crash, bang, wallop.
It will be over fast. Whoever the winner, itll be a war.
This is a fight for Golovkin which will take the edge off him. It will set a bit more age .
Unbeaten Saunders held the WBO middleweight championship if the important divisional straps were Golovkins, but a struggle never materialised.
Saunders, today the WBO super-middleweight winner, has since linked up using promoter Eddie Hearn and said at the time:I would fight Golovkin at whatever weight that he desires. I could show folks how readily he could be beaten by me out-box. I can do a much better job compared to SaulCanelo Alvarez.
Golovkins only career defeat came following a draw in their first battle calendar year, to Canelo.
Saunders has now identified Canelo, who fights with Sergey Kovalev on November 2, as his dream struggle for the Mexican vacation of next May.
I would enjoy ruining Cinco de Mayo for the Mexican lovers, Saunders said.
Following 19, the Golovkin of kazakhstan is additionally working together with promoter Hearn, who still sees him.
Hearn explained:You have got Demetrius Andrade. Id like Demetrius Andrade to combat Canelo or even Golovkin. Weve got Saunders in 168 [pounds ]. Has the power to return to 160 [lbs]. Danny Jacobs is fighting 168, but likely could still make 160. Youve got Callum Smith, if those men want to move up.
I believe that the secret in 2020 is get all of those struggles made. Id like to visit Golovkin and Canelo, but finally Canelo will determine who he fights, and at this time, Golovkin is not on this list for us.
