Report: Brandon Adams Weighing Offers To Face Either Gennady Golovkin Or Jermall Charlo

One up-and-coming middleweight contender could be given the chance of a lifetime with separate offers to face either Jermall Charlo or Gennady Golovkin.

According to Mike Coppinger, Adams, the winner of the most recent season of The Contender, is weighing fight offers to face either former world champion. Both offers would have Adams fight in June and a decision is expected to make a decision this week.

Adams defeated Shane Mosley Jr. in the finals of the reality show last year. Adams dominated the fight, winning a wide unanimous decision (100-90, 100-90, 99-91).

With the win, Adams also received a $250,000 prize as well as a top 10 ranking in the official WBA rankings at middleweight. Currently ranked at No. 3 in the most recent WBA rankings, Adams is eligible to challenge for both middleweight world titles. The current WBA “Super” middleweight champion is Canelo Alvarez while the “Regular” champion is Rob Brant, who won the title in October with a win over Ryota Murata.

Should Adams choose to face Charlo, it would likely be for Charlo's interim WBC title, which he has held since April 2018. A fight against Golovkin would have Adams jump to DAZN and be the former unified champion's debut opponent on the streaming platform.

The 29-year-old Adams is on a four-fight win streak losing to John Thompson back in 2015. After the loss to Thompson, Adams spent three years away from the sport, returning for The Contender, where he defeated Tyrone Brunson, Ievgen Khytrov and Eric Walker en route to the finals against Mosley Jr.
