Despite reports that he could fight Daniel Jacobs next, Golovkin is looking for an opponent after blitzing Kell Brook at the O2 Arena in London in September.

Froch’s former promoter Eddie Hearn was with Golovkin’s manager Tom Loeffer in Monte Carlo at the weekend.

And Hearn admits speculation that the pair could meet in 2017 has “wound-up” the 39-year-old Nottingham fighter so much, he is considering a comeback.

Speaking to Declan Taylor in The Sun , Hearn said: “Tom was joking really but Carl texted me and said, ‘What weight would Golovkin fight me at?’ I said, ‘172lb’ and Loeffler said, ‘170’.

“Carl has got wound up. I know exactly what Loeffler is trying to do and that is entice him out.

“I’m not sure I want to see him fight again — but he is such a competitor.

“That would have been one of the great fights — and it might still be.”
