GENNADY GOLOVKIN has started training camp for his rescheduled match against Ryota Murata.
The middleweight champion was set to unify his IBF belt with Murata’s WBA release in December in Japan.
But it was postponed amid coronavirus restrictionswith GGG announcing April as the new target date.
Golovkin, 39, posted on Instagram: “Nice to be back at training camp and seeing my team again.
“Hopefully a date for the reunification war with Ryota Murata to be rescheduled to early April will be announced soon.
“I look forward to traveling to Japan and to BIGGER things in 2022.”
Golovkin this year could fit a three-part matchup against Canelo Alvarez.
Canelo, 31, is expected to return in May, a month after GGG’s planned fight with 36-year-old Murata.

And the promoter Eddie Hearn and DAZN proposed a two-war deal which he first challenged to a duel with 31-year-old Dmitry Bivol.
And after Bivol’s WBA title fight in May, the three-part match against GGG will take place in September.
Mexicans are considered lucky to leave with a draw against Golovkin in 2017, but won the razor-thin rematch a year later.
Since then, he has won titles in light-heavyweight and most recently super-middleweight, becoming undisputed king last year.
But for Golovkin to have his revenge on Canelo, he first needs to fight outside of middleweight and move into supermiddleweight.
