Golovkin: I Need To Perform at My Best in Canelo Fight

BIG BEAR, CALIF.  -- Boxing's No. 1 pound for pound superhero GENNADY "GGG" GOLOVKIN is back at The Summit Gym, head trainer Abel Sanchez's high altitude training complex in Big Bear, Calif., preparing for the biggest challenge to his world championship crown -- Canelo Alvarez!  Golovkin, the 2017 ESPY Award Best Fighter nominee (his third consecutive nomination), came into training fit and fired up as he gears up for his long-awaited Las Vegas debut.

“Abel has new ideas for this fight – exciting ideas -- and I need to be my best to perform in the ring,” said Golovkin.  “I don’t care about pound for pound.  This is real.  This is about being the champion of the world.”     

“I was very happy with the first week Gennady spent in camp for basic conditioning,” said Sanchez.  “The most difficult thing to do with Gennady is to hold him back.  Starting slowly is just not in his vocabulary.  Gennady has wanted this fight for so long.  I can already tell he is going to pull out all stops in this training camp to be at his best on September 16.  This is war.”
