Golovkin who was in talks with Canelo camp since late last year and also Bill Joy Saunders but both fights failed to materialized forcing Golovkin to look for alternative and Dominic Wade steps in for what should be an interesting fight precisely two weeks before Canelo-Khan takes place in Last Vegas.
