Gennady Golovkin calls out Canelo Alvarez after defeating Dominic Wade
Unified middlewight champion Gennady Golovkin defeated mandatory challenger Dominic Wade in a dominant, second-round knockout Saturday and issued a challenge to WBC middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez immediately afterwards.
"I feel great. I'm here now, and I'm here to stay. I'm not going anywhere. Give me my belt, give me my belt! Let's fight," Golovkin said in to Alvarez.
Golovkin currently holds the WBA, IBF and IBO middleweight belts, but has the interim tag attached to his WBC title.
The knockout of Wade was his 22nd consecutive win in that fashion, and his 16th successful title defense in-a-row.
Alvarez is next scheduled to face British star Amir Khan on May 7 in Las Vegas.
