By Dan Ambrose: Top Rank promoter Bob Arum has a big fight for his unbeaten WBO super middleweight champion Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramirez (34-0, 24 KOs) next year in May 2017. Arum plans on matching Ramirez against IBF/IBO/WBA/WBC middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (35-0, 32 KOs), according to Lance Pugmire of the LA Times.
Golovkin will be moving up to super middleweight to make the fight happen. Arum doesn’t expect Golovkin to have faced Mexican star Saul “Canelo” Alvarez by that time. Golovkin wants the fight against Canelo, but if that fight doesn’t happen, then Golovkin will face Ramirez.
