Gennady Golovkin has taken to Twitter to ask his fans as to whether or not they want to see him in a mega-fight at Wembley Stadium against Carl Froch next summer.

Talk of the fight is growing as after Barry Hearn had insisted that the bout would sell 80,000 tickets at Wembley, Froch was asked about it in the build-up to James DeGale’s title fight with Andre Dirrell on Saturday night.
The ‘Cobra’ has been contemplating retirement for the last few months, but has insisted that he would consider a return to the ring as long as the opponent and event was enough to motivate him for a gruelling training camp.
Golovkin seemingly ticks those boxes if he moves up to super-middleweight for the fight, as Froch has conceded that not only would he like to feel just how powerful the Kazakh star is, but he is confident that he would become the first man to defeat him in what would undoubtedly be a war.
While promoter Eddie Hearn has previously suggested that he has held talks with his rival promotional company to discuss making the fight happen, Golovkin has now joined the chat by engaging his fans and seeing whether or not the demand is there for a clash with the Brit.

The 33-year-old has made no secret of his desire to clean up in the middleweight division before he considers a move up the weight classes. However, with Miguel Cotto and Saul Alvarez seemingly apprehensive in taking him on in the ring, he may have no other choice but to step up and take on Froch in what would be a huge night of boxing.
