Gennady Golovkin to attend Canelo-Khan
Promoters are expecting a packed T-Mobile Arena on Saturday night, and we can expect a typical array of Hollywood bigs and singers and boldfaced names from other spheres of the American entertainment complex to grab a seat and watch the fistic tangos unfold.
We are not sure whether the presumptive GOP nominee to vie for a term in the big White House on Pennsylvania Ave. will make it to Canelo’s middleweight title defense against Amir Khan.
Though we did hear that Donald Trump did converse on the phone with Golden Boy boss Oscar De La Hoya on Wednesday, so maybe a seat was secured for The Donald.
But one notable practitioner who can boast of being a leader in the dark art of stopping foes, for sure, will be in the building, up close, studying the main eventers acutely.
Gennady Golovkin will be in the building, his promoter tells us.
“It should be a great event. We want to see who his next opponent is going to be,” said Tom Loeffler, the low-key dealmaker and starmaker who has helped propel the fighting pride of Kazahkstan into a bi-coastal building-filler.
And who does he like in this one? The “bigger” guy, more acclimated to this weight range?
“I think the bigger guy with the bigger punch, but it will be a good stylistic matchup to see if Khan can outbox Canelo or not,” answered Loeffler.
