LOS ANGELES — Gennady Golovkin is growing frustrated with boxing's sanctioning bodies while he struggles to find a replacement opponent for Canelo Alvarez on May 5.
Golovkin and his promoter and trainer appeared in downtown Los Angeles on Thursday to announce they still haven't found a suitable replacement, and time is running out.
The unbeaten middleweight champion's rematch with Alvarez in Las Vegas fell through after the Mexican star failed a doping test in February and finally withdrew from the bout last week.
Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs) is still in training for a fight on Cinco de Mayo weekend, but he doesn't appear to be much closer to finding a suitable opponent for what would be his 20th defense of his 160-pound titles.
