Golovkin's Trainer: Broner's Past Competition Lackluster

Text by Edward Chaykovsky, Interview by Chris Robinson

Abel Sanchez, trainer of WBA/IBO middleweight king Gennady Golovkin, says Adrien Broner's past competition was lackluster and didn't properly prepare him for a very tough opponent like Marcos Maidana. Last month Maidana (35-3, 31KOs) scored an upset twelve round unanimous decision over Broner (27-1, 22KOs) to capture the WBA welterweight crown. Broner, a former three division champion, was dropped twice and  took punishment in the loss.

"I think Adrien did not have the difficult fights along the way to prepare him for Maidana. Maidana is a seasoned veteran, he's been through all the wars, Maidana has been in the tough fights. I'm sure Maidana has been in fights where he wanted to sit on the stool and not come out. Broner never had that. Broner had a spoon-fed repertoire that didn't prepare him for the difficult guys like Maidana, Matthysse, Garcia, and even Peterson. Those are seasoned guys, that when the going gets tough they are going to suck it up. Adrien I think panicked in the beginning. When he panicked he started fighting Maidana's fight," Sanchez said.

The sad thing is that Broner's resume is better than Golovkin's. At last he fought the likes of Antonio DeMarco and Daniel Ponce de Leon.
