Jeff Horn wants Canelo Alvarez, Gennady Golovkin in middleweight super fights

Former WBO welterweight champion Jeff “The Hornet” Horn 19-1-1 (13) has called out leading middleweights Saul “Canelo” Alvarez 51-1-2 (35) and Gennady “GGG” Golovkin 38-1-1 (34) after successfully debuting at 156-pounds last year.

“I’ve just come out of holiday mode into training mode and I’m letting [trainer] Glenn [Rushton] and [promoter] Dean [Lonergan] figure out [which] opponents are ready, who’s available between the April-May time period,” Horn said in an exclusive interview on Sky News.

“I would like a big name if we can. If we can get a Canelo – he’s a massive name in the sport and he’s beatable, he’s one of the best out there though, but he’s beatable as well.

“Even a Golovkin, going up to the middleweights. Who knows. I like now that I’ve got three divisions that I could potentially get a world title at – welterweight, super welterweight and middleweight.”
