According to a report by Mike Coppinger at The Athletic, Gennadiy Golovkin was asked by DAZN to cut a salary for his mandatory IBF middleweight defense against Kamil Szeremeta, and both sides are working on a reorganization – and close to a deal

Golovkin signed a six-fight deal with DAZN in 2019.You will recall that DAZN asked Canelo Alvarez – who had an even bigger deal (many times over) with DAZN – to cut a salary for a possible return on investment Canelo got his contracts with Golden Boy Promotions and the streaming service, but he will continue to fight for his December on DAZN I fight Callum Smith and could fight them in the future, which is a win-win overall for both sides could

Golovkin, 38, is slated to face Szeremeta in December 18 It’s not a really big fight, which means that GGG’s first three fights on DAZN are “not really big fights” including his Dec. 2019 fight with Sergiy Derevyanchenko; That was a good fight, and die-hard fans knew it was like that, but it didn’t really reach the more choosy audiences.The Kazakh fighter made his DAZN debut in June 2019 with a win over Steve Rolls

Szeremeta (21-0, 5 KO’s) has no real name worth and is not seen as a legitimate threat to Golovkin, but the 31-year-old from Poland is the mandatory challenger and the fight has to take place so that Golovkin is not released from the belt and Golovkin does not want to be freed from the belt

You would imagine that Golovkin (40-1-1, 35 KO’s) and DAZN will make it well enough to end this fight, and then go from there and “do this fight and go from there ” is pretty much the whole point, really

In theory, Golovkin could be trying to get out of his business like Canelo, but Golovkin also has a lot less clout than Canelo, and with Gennadiy much later in his career as Alvarez, he’d probably prefer to have the security of a set contract, too if it’s not what it was when he signed in 2019 and the fight Golovkin wants most, a third fight with Canelo, is not off the table if he stays at DAZN that could still be done, and DAZN always would still pay well for it
