“It changed after the doping scandal,” Golovkin told USA Today. “After the first fight I remember I said, ‘Thank you for the fight, it is a great fight.’ He said the same. He said I was a champion, all this. We were friendly. After doping? No. For me this is a terrible situation right now and we have only business. I am ready.”
