Abel sanchez, former coach of Gennady Golovkin, assured that the Kazakh needs more the third fight with Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez, than the Mexican.
“I believe that GGG need more to Canelo“, He pointed out in an interview with Fighthub. “I think it’s a decent fight just because it’s the kind of fight that Gennady is motivated, but Canelo He has three or four guys that he wants to fight. “
In September 2017, the Mexican and the Kazakh faced each other for the first time with the four belts of the middle division at stake.
The judges scored cards of 118-110 in favor of Saul, 115-113 for Gennady and 114-114 to declare a tie.
“(Canelo) look for many different things and Gennady is not one of them, “he commented Sanchez. “(Golovkin) searches for future rankings and is looking for the status of Hall of Fame”.
The rematch fight had to be held a year later, since Canelo He tested positive for clenbuterol in April 2018 and was suspended for six months.
However, the man from Guadalajara proved that his intake was accidental and in September 2018 the rematch took place. Saul he took the majority decision by cards of 114-114 and double 115-113.
Golovkin and Sanchez broke their relationship in April 2019, less than two months after the Kazakh faced Steve Rolls. Abel got upset and even crossed out GGG of “being greedy and ungrateful.”
Canelo Alvarez He stated in the past that he no longer wants to lose 160 pounds and whoever wants to face him will have to go up to 168.
He is currently in preparation camp for his unification bout on November 6 before Caleb Plant.
Will GGG’s future be a fight with Canelo?
At 39 years old, Gennady Golovkin is preparing to face Ryota murata at the end of the year to unify the belts of the WBA, WBO and FIB.
“In the race of Gennady and at this point in his career, I think there are many threats “, he considered Abel sanchez. “You fight like that that his face ends up like that of Derevyanchenko, I think there are a lot of threats in 160. Not that they are going to knock him out, because they won’t. Gennady he has a strong jaw ”.
