The trainer of Gennady Golovkin, Abel Sanchez talks about GGG’s training camp and what he can tell on the boxing critics.
Abel Sanchez talks to FightHub about their camp’s preparation against Canelo Alvarez, he answers critics who thought that GGG against Canelo is in a ‘downtrend.’
FightHub asks how the training camp has been going, he replied, “Very good. We’ve been in camp now for four weeks, um, like normal, like every other preparation that we’ve done.” He considers the source about Atlas’ criticism on GGG’s decline that the people in Vegas don’t really want to really lose money to have GGG as their favorite. He added, “Everybody’s got an opinion and that’s okay. That’s the way it should be.”
Sanchez is skeptic about Canelo to stop him in their fight with GGG, “No, it’s not a prediction. I think that if you’ve seen the last 10 fight GGG has had, that’s the way he fights. I’m not gonna do anything different in preparation because he’s another fight for me and another fight for him. Yes, he may be the most known guy right now but it’s another fight.”
He believes that it’s just another fight for them, he quoted, “It may be big for boxing by it’s just another fight. But because of the circus two weeks before, three weeks before, I think it’s important we make boxing take not.”
StubHub asked Sanchez about the sparring between GGG and Canelo several years ago, and he replied, “Well, Doug Fischer was present in one of the sparring so if go back and read a Ring Magazine article about that – but it’s sparring. Canelo was still 19, or 20 years old that time. But he was a welterweight that time and Golovkin is not an abusive guy. GGG is there to spar, work, if you saw Chavez tape at the Wild Card you know that he’s not trying to hurt anybody.”
