Golovkin's Trainer Doubts Martinez Will Face Them in 2014

Abel Sanchez, trainer of WBA/IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin, has serious doubts that WBC champion Sergio Martinez (51-2-2, 28KOs) will face them in 2014 - even if the Argentine fighter defeats Miguel Cotto on June 7th. Golovkin will return on April 26th at The Theater in New York's Madison Square Garden, likely against Andy Lee.

If Martinez beats Cotto, they are going to approach his team to do a unification clash, but Sanchez doesn't expect the Martinez fight to come together this year.

"Sergio is getting older. I think he's looking for an opportunity to earn good money. I think the fight with Cotto is already done. It appears they are going to fight on June 7. This is a good fight for Martinez. If it turns out that he beats Cotto - then, perhaps, we will discuss a fight between him and Golovkin. But I don't believe that Martinez will want to fight Golovkin," Sanchez said.

Only on boxingscene where just because a fighter can punch everyone is ducking him. Reminds me of the hype Matthysse had but at least he fought better fighters than Golovkin. Saying Martinez is ducking this guy is ridiculous considering the way Martinez came up.

The Kool-Aid Guzzlers are all around on this site!

I mean really who has GGG really beat??? We know the MW division is not like the JR Middle, WW, or even the Jr.Welter division that is loaded with comp. But again really who did this kid really beat??? His people are calling my guy out like he's some sort of coward. And the guzzlers' on this si...

[QUOTE=rey guey]Martinez said he'd honor his HBO contract win or lose against Cotto, Sergio Martinez will still have 1 fight left on his HBO contract. if Golovkin fights Lee and Kirkland, people will demand the fight and they might even be able to have it on PPV. Martinez has said he's op...

[QUOTE=bojangles1987]I hope Sergio is hearing stuff like this and is hearing some of the talk about him ducking Golovkin. If he's anything close to normal against Cotto, he'll win and look good doing so, and none of the big money fighters will want to fight him. I think Sergio is a very prideful ...
