GGG knocked out Steve Rolls in his comeback fight in June before seeing off Derevyanchenko to reclaim some of his silverware.

Golovkin has had a storied history with Mexican star Canelo, and many are hoping for a third fight between the pair soon.

Gennady Golovkin: When is he returning and who is he facing?

Golovkin is set for a busy 2020 and is expected to return to the ring in January or February to face his mandatory, Kamil Szeremeta.

Szeremeta’s promoter Andrei Vasilevski said: “We are ready.

“Kamil Szeremeta is a very ambitious sportsperson. He is dreaming about the fight with such a legend as GGG. It is his main goal.”

Fellow promoter Eddie Hearn has expressed an interest in holding that bout in Chicago but no official date or venue has been confirmed yet.

Hearn has also said that, should Golovkin win, a trilogy fight with Canelo could be next.

He said: “[Golovkin vs Canelo 3] can be done.

“He has a mandatory and he wants to get that out of the way, but he also wants the Canelo fight badly, so we have to see what happens.

“It really should be Gennady Golovkin next, but we’ve got five [guys] and it will be one of those five next and the one after, probably, for Canelo.”
