There was no shock this time round at Madison Square Garden as Gennady Golovkin won his super middleweight fight with ease after a fourth-round KO against Steve Rolls.
The bout was streamed live on DAZN and GGG was in doubt about what should happen next when asked post-fight.
We know who the fans want me to fight next.

He went on to add that he believes Canelo will take the fight: "I believe. This is boxing. This is boxing business. Why not?"
However, The Mexican and his camp seem to have other ideas and were unimpressed by the Golovkin KO. Immediately after the fight, promoter Oscar De La Hoya suggested Triple G must face a 'real fighter' first.
Nice 👍🏼 comeback win. Now fight a real fighter, win a belt, and I’ll consider doing the 3rd fight. #Caneloisyourboss

Alvarez-Golovkin III would undeniably be a blockbuster bout, should it occur this year. While there have been some questions about the miles on the clock of the 37-year-old, new trainer Johnathan Banks was impressed by what he saw last night.
"We're going in the right direction."
