Billy Joe Saunders tells Gennady Golovkin: 'My pen is in my pocket'

Golovkin also would like to fight Billy Joe Saunders in a unification fight so he can have a chance to claim the one major belt he does not already own.

Golovkin, whose World Boxing Association (WBA) belt was not on the line, now wants to fight Brook's fellow Briton and World Boxing Organization (WBO) champion Saunders before moving on to Mexican Saul "Canelo" Alvarez in a year's time.

Brook only had a few weeks to get acclimated to his new weight division while Golovkin has been a middleweight practically all his life.

WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders (23-0, 12 KOs) will defend his title against an opponent to be named on the October 29 Fury-Klitschko 2 card in Manchester, England.

"Special K" fought well and was able to exploit the gaps in Golovkin's defense. "It doesn't bother me, we'll fight anywhere you want to fight".

Saunders has an upcoming fight himself to worry about next month against an as of yet unnamed opponent, but provided he comes through that with a win and injury free, perhaps a Golovkin showdown in December in the United Kingdom could be a real early Christmas present for boxing fans. The cookbook strategists will be espousing strategies and game plans on how to beat him over the next few weeks, and some of them may even make a cogent case. Gennady is open to fight anyone.

"To us, and to many people, it's not going to be an upset. Hopefully we can make it".

The Sheffield boxer suffered his first defeat in 37 fights and brutally discovered that Golovkin was a level above anything he had previously faced.

Brook further stated, "I have knockout power that 3G has not felt and with the added weight I'll be stronger". "In the second round I wanted a street fight and a brawl", admitted Golovkin.

"I'm a fully fledged middleweight and not a blown up welterweight".

Golovkin has rarely been hurt in his outstanding career but he was marked around the face by the end of the second as the skillful Brook landed a fearsome uppercut.

"He didn't hurt me at all".

"In the fifth round I could see he was avoiding a lot of shots but not throwing anything back because he couldn't see what he was supposed to be hitting". He stopped IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook, who moved up by thirteen pounds for the fight.

Brendan Ingle threw the towel in during the fifth round at the O2 Arena on Saturday after Kell Brook fractured an eye socket.

And Saunders warned, "The bigger the challenge the more I perform". And while I can I'm gonna go for it.

Golovkin's trainer Abel Sanchez praised Ingle for prompting the stoppage.

His Trainer Dominic Ingle has been talking victory ever since the fight was contracted, is he also fooling himself with false hopes?
