K2 Promotions's Tom Loeffler, promoter to the highly regarded Gennady Golovkin, responded to Erislandy Lara's comments about wanting to move up to fight Golovkin in the middleweight division.
"Are you serious?" Loeffler joked on Twitter. Last week Lara called out GGG on twitter saying that he wanted to fight him. Loeffler doesn't seem to be taking the challenge seriously considering Lara has never fought at the middleweight division. There's also the issue of the Cold War.
"He is not approved by HBO and was never on our radar, he should be calling out Quillin, if he wins he becomes interesting." Loeffler told Mark Ortega from RingTV.
