    Default Gennady Golovkin’s next fight: Ryota Murata named as frontrunner for Japan bout

    GGG will likely return to the ring between March and May 2019

    Japanese middleweight Ryota Murata has emerged as an unlikely frontrunner for Gennady Golovkin’s next fight.

    The former unified middleweight king suffered the first defeat of his career by close, majority decision to Canelo Alvarez in September, and the pair will go their separate ways for the time being.



    With Canelo now set to fight Rocky Fielding in December and signed exclusively to fledgling US streaming service DAZN, GGG’s team are instead looking at potential alternative opponents for his next bout.

    His promoter Tom Loeffler told ESPN: “Murata fights this weekend and he is a very attractive option if he beats Rob Brant. That fight seems like it is very makeable.

    “Gennady has always enjoyed fighting internationally.

    “We know what GGG brings to the table and Murata brings monster ratings in Japan and he is very popular.

    “I would say he has distinguished himself as the frontrunner if he can win on Saturday night.”



    Murata is a London 2012 Olympic gold medallist who has risen to become WBA ‘regular’ middleweight champion as a professional.

    He has a record of 14-1 and avenged his sole defeat (which was widely considered a robbery) by knockout.

    The proposed fight would take place at the Tokyo Dome in Murata’s native Japan – the same arena in which Buster Douglas beat Mike Tyson back in 1990.

    If Canelo is getting a breather with Fielding, and Charlo's looking at Sulecki, then a money fight with Murata for a 'belt' is a good move for GGG.

    Can’t blame a guy for getting paid but I would prefer a more talented opponent. Is what it is. If you all say it is exciting I will check it out on YouTube

    With Charlo looking at Sulecki what is he supposed to do? Murata gets him a good payday, probably in front of millions, also gets him a belt to bring to negotiations.

    He could show interest in a Charlo fight and see what happens. Charlo posted a picture of him and GGG a while back, further indications like the countless times he has said he wants GGG that he wants GGG. He could say he will drop the petition to avoid and take the eliminator. Maybe Charlo doesn’t really want GGG. We don’t know because he’s never had the option.

    Or he can get paid. I don’t really care anymore. Sulecki just gave Jacobs fits. I’m intrigued by a Sulecki fight. We’ll have a better understanding of if Charlo is who we think he is.

    Like I said, I’m not hating on GGG getting paid. Is Sulecki considered another eliminator? I don’t think the WBC will ever enforce his mandatory spot now that Canelo has the belt, I’m just curious.

    Not sure if it's an eliminator or not, just a name I heard was in the mix, along with Monroe Jr previously. Charlo doesn't seem to be showing much interest in GGG either.

    Personally I think Murata is a more talented opponent than Sulecki or Monroe Jr. He also holds a belt, will get GGG double the money and will bring a huge audience.

    It’s not a real belt.

    And I haven’t seen anything as impressive from Murata as the fight Sulecki gave Jacobs.

    Maybe I’m remembering it wrong but my recollection was he gave him all he could handle.

    Will watch it again now because I don’t trust my memory

    No you are right that Sulecki gave Jacobs a tough fight. Doesn't mean he's better than Murata.

    And the belt is real enough to bring to negotiations and put him right below Canelo's WBA belt.

    You’re right. It doesn’t prove anything in regards to Sulecki vs Murata. Just saying between the 2 the best performance I have seen is Sulecki’s loss to Jacobs. But I rate losses higher than most. I think getting in with a top guy and performing at that level shows far more than destroying lesser fighters.

    Edit-getting frustrated I can’t find that fight

    Murata fought the solid N'Jikam twice, he should have won both. Jacob's is obviously the better of the 2 opponents but Murata is a very decent fighter.

    Here we go:

    Murata can fight a bit. Facing a top guy in the division sweeping trinkets into the bin and facing off in Japan, I'm actually ok with that.

    Murata is a top 5 middleweight who is totally overlooked because he's Japanese. Barring the obvious top two, Jacobs and Saunders nobody else really has any form to surpass him. Great matchup.

    And the very fact they plan to hold it the Tokyo Dome says it all. Canelo is the only other middleweight who can pack a 60,000 stadium.

    Also if the fight is in Japan it would be on DAZN JPN. This could bring a Canelo trilogy much closer.

    It would be probably be shown in the US on ESPN.
