Gen­nady Golovkin says he would wel­come a fight with fel­low mid­dleweight cham­pion Billy Jose Saun­ders, but is still hope­ful of fac­ing Mex­i­can sensation Saul Al­varez. Hav­ing beaten Kell Brook inside five rounds last week­end, the un­de­feated Kazakh is al­ready look­ing for his next op­po­nent. “Of course I want a fight with Al­varez,” he said. “There is talk ev­ery time, ev­ery­body asks me when will I fight Canelo. It’s not my fault, it’s his fault. I’m ready. I “Ab­so­lutely [he’s pre­vent­ing the fight from hap­pen­ing]. Of course I want him.” WBO cham­pion Saun­ders is an­other op­tion and Golovkin added: “I want a fight with him and I am open for ev­ery­body I think now he’s ready.”
