Pugmire added that Golovkin does not know if this is a negotiation strategy of the team of the Canelo.

ahead of his planned December 31 fight against Murata in Japan, “he added Pugmire.

“They tell us that the team Plant on Premier Boxing Champions I wanted the Mexican superstar to sign a multi-fight contract to appear on their platforms, ”he reported. The Ring.
That information was confirmed by the promoter Eddie hearn in the program DAZN Boxing Show.
“(PBC) I’d rather close a three-fight deal, obviously, with the Canelo Alvarez“, He said Hearn. “This is your chance to try to attract him to your promoter.”
