Amongst the rumors of who Kazakhstani boxer and middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin will fight next after linear middleweight champion Saul Canelo Alvarez vacated the WBC belt, reports have now surfaced about Golovkin’s last opponent Dominic Wade, who Golovkin defeated by KO.

According to a TMZ Sports report, Wade “had beaten the hell out of a woman in the months before the fight” which should have prevented him from fighting in the first place.

TMZ Sports obtained official records that, according to TMZ, states:

“Wade was charged with assault for a Dec. 23rd incident — in which he allegedly attacked the mother of his child … and then punched her niece in the face.

The niece told cops she had heard the commotion in the home and ran into the room to help her aunt when Wade socked her in the mouth — knocking out one of her teeth.”

Wade, age 26, is currently 18-1 as a professional, stand to spend up to the next three years in prison if convicted. His sentencing hearing is set for August, and it’s his lawyer that will have to have the knockout performance to win his next fight.

There is no word as of yet if the boxing commissions plan to suspend his license or dish out any further punishment in the matter.
