The head trainer of Gennady Golovkin recently gave a few interesting comments to ESPN Deportes regarding the upcoming fight between GGG- Canelo. Abel Sanchez and his number one guy were at ringside watching very closely how Alvarez demolished Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. Eventually Golovkin and Canelo met in the ring but it wasn’t the first time the two have faced off.
Golovkin and Canelo had a sparring session back in 2011 but Sanchez isn’t thinking much of it because so much time has passed since.
“The sparring is one thing, they wear big gloves, Canelo was young, I think 20 or 21 years old, GGG was already more mature and had more experience, but it was good. I think this type of fight will make boxing grow,” said Sanchez.
Of course he is expecting a violent fight but believes that eventually Golovkin’s power will be too much.
“I think it will be a difficult fight for both of them. GGG is going to be very strong. Canelo is going to want to box but I feel that Golovkin will have too much for Canelo. And if he doesn’t knock him out in the later rounds, then he will win by decision. What should be noted is that Golovkin will take it to him like a Mexican. Canelo has an established style, as we saw on Saturday. It will be a long fight,” told Sanchez.
The head trainer even brought up the possibility of a trilogy between Canelo and GGG.
“Just like Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko, this is one of those fights that make people tune in to boxing, it’s those kinds of fights that can lead to a rematch or a trilogy…. boxing needs a Morales-Barrera , Márquez-Pacquiao, Márquez-Vázquez.”
Canelo-GGG will go down on September 16th. It will be a part of the Mexican Independence Day weekend.
