It was reported last Friday, October 14, that former pound for pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr. was back in the gym, sparring publicly for the first time since announcing his retirement in September of 2015.
Although the sport of boxing is slowly but surely moving on without Floyd Mayweather, one can't help but wonder if Floyd will be content seeing someone like Canelo Alvarez or Gennady Golovkin bask the sport's limelight while becoming the pastime's primary ambassador.
Without a clear, and definitive superstar on the sport's horizon, many fans are wondering whether or not Floyd Jr. will return to the ring and reclaim his throne atop boxing's elite.
During a recent media day, middleweight Champion Gennady 'GGG' Golovkin let it be known that there is only one fighter he'd be willing to melt down an entire weight division to face in the ring.
On Saturday, September 10, WBC, WBA, IBF and IBO Middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin will take on his widely perceived "toughest test to date" in IBF Welterweight titlist Kell Brook, in front of a capacity crowd at the O2 Arena in London, England.
Last night, heavy-handed unified middleweight champion Gennady 'Triple G' Golovkin did what many expected.
On May 2, unbeaten lineal welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather (48-0, 26 KOs) earned a twelve round unanimous decision over then-WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao (57-6-2, 38 KOs) in the highest grossing fight in boxing history.
