Carson Jones: Golovkin "Held Back" in Sparring Against Canelo

By Ryan Burton

WBC/WBA/IBF/IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin is almost half way through his training camp for his September 16th mega-fight against Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.  The highly anticipated bout will be distributed by HBO pay-per-view and will take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Training alongside Golovkin under the guidance of Abel Sanchez is Carson Jones who has a big fight coming up against Antonio Margarito on September 2nd in Mexico.

Jones said that it is business as usual for Golovkin and that he is training hard like he always does.

"He is looking good. He trains hard just like always. Everybody here all trains at only one speed and that is 100. He just has one speed. I am expecting a good fight and I am expecting Gennady to come out on top," said Jones.

Much has been made of the now infamous sparring session between a 20-year-old Canelo and a 28-year-old Golovkin.  Jones was on hand that day and isn't sure how relevant that sparring session will be to their upcoming fight but said that Golovkin definitely wasn't going all out during the session.

"G was kind of taking it easy. He holds back a little bit in sparring. I saw it but it was what it was back in the day. Canelo has gotten better and G has gotten better too. It should be a heck of a fight on September 16th," said Jones.

Jones said that Sanchez may have foresaw a fight between Canelo and GGG back then and didn't want Golovkin to do too much in sparring.

"Abel knows what he is doing. He probably knew that one day they might fight," Jones speculated.

"G is a nice guy but he is a killer. Sparring is one thing but in a fight it is different. If you hurt your sparring partner too bad you might lose that sparring partner and he wants to get that work in and work on different stuff. Sparring isn't about how bad you beat your sparring partner. You want to work on different things to get ready for the fight."

Lil G broke Candelita up in sparring and he'll slump her in the real fight. There will be a big price to pay for all the trash talk and ducking that diva has done over the past 2 years.

No surprises, to even let a teenager spar him at that point shows how much talent they believe Canelo had.
