Golovkin Stripped Of IBF Middleweight Title

Alvarez and Golovkin were set for a May 5 rematch after they previously fought to a draw, but the rematch was canceled, which led to Golovkin fighting Martirosyan.

Considered to be one of the best fighters of his generation, Golovkin won the IBF middleweight title by beating Canadian David Lemieux in 2015, knocking him out in eight rounds post which he successfully defended it against the likes of Kell Brook from Great Britain and Dominic Wade from the United States of America while drawing against Canelo Alvarez.

The Springfield, New Jersey-based sanctioning organization ruled to take Golovkin's 160-pound championship from him because Golovkin didn't adhere to the stipulations of the exception the IBF granted before he fought Vanes Martirosyan on May 5 in Carson, California.

The IBF stripped Gennady Golovkin of his middleweight world title Wednesday, according to Yahoo Sports, which has obtained a copy of the ruling.

Promoter Lou DiBella and Derevyanchenko then tried to get the IBF to enforce a fight between Golovkin and Derevyanchenko. He would have had until August 3 to prepare for the fight, but the Uzbek star never agreed. With Golovkin no longer having to worry about defending his IBF belt, there are still a number of potential challengers for him. He added that Gennady is disappointed in the ruling. The Mexican superstar's suspension should end after August 17 because it is retroactive to the date of the first of Alvarez's two positive tests for clenbuterol (February 17).

However, Loeffler said Golovkin is willing to drop his demands for an even split.

Gennady Golovkin's promoter Tom Loeffler on Canelo v Jacobs: "All I can say is that those two guys are guys GGG already beat previous year". He always wanted the fight with Canelo. It will be Canelo making 55 percent in a rematch against GGG, which will be much bigger than the first fight was for sure. "That's the fight we want".
