Abel Sanchez, the trainer of IBO/WBA "regular" middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (23-0, 20KOs), wants his boxer to make a statement on Saturday night against EBU king Grzegorz Proksa (28-1, 21KOs) at Turning Stone Casino in Verona, New York.

Both Golovkin and Proksa will make their debuts on HBO. Sanchez indicates that Golovkin understands that he needs to make a real impression to return to the network in the near future. Proksa is a replacement for WBO champion Dmitry Pirog, who withdrew with an injury a few weeks ago.

"[Golovkin is] a big puncher, so we needed to initiate and he understands he needs to initiate where in the past in some of the earlier fights that he had, he was sitting back waiting to counter punch.  We need to be the aggressor.  We need to make sure they understand who they’re in there with.  Not to make it a long, drag-out boring fight – to make it a fight - to make the public want to see him again.  He understands that completely," Sanchez said.

"He understands the American public wants to see a knock-out.  Whichever round it is, they want to see a knock-out.  That’s one of the things that was very important to make him understand the quicker the better.  He’s going to get paid the same whether it’s one round or 12 rounds."

If there were a concern about Golovkin it's what this is talking about that he'll be too amped up looking to take Proksa head off and forget about all the other subtleties needed to achieve a KO especially if Proksa can frustrate him early with his wild @ crazy manuveurs and make Golovkin press e...

[QUOTE=Tobi.G]BTW is Sanchez a good trainer?[/QUOTE] He worked with both Terry Norris and Orlin Norris and helped guide them to world championships.

[QUOTE=Mikhnienko]Having Golovkin's trainer Sanchez telling him that he needs to score a KO is doing him a horrible disservice. That's the type of advice that will lead to him turning into a face first brawler like in the Ouma fight rather than using his skills. I'm still skepticle that having Sa...

I say Golovkin wins by 3rd round KO. BTW is Sanchez a good trainer?
