Golovkin's Trainer Doubts Sergio Martinez Became Old

A fight with fellow middleweight champion Sergio Martinez is something trainer Abel Sanchez would like to get for the heavy-handed Gennady Golovkin (26-0, 23 KOs), who on June 29 will defend his WBA title against Matthew Macklin (29-4, 20 KOs) at Foxwoods Resort in Mashantucket, Conn. (on HBO).

But since Golovkin is such a hard puncher, one has to wonder if that's ever going to happen on the heels of Martinez's rather close decision over Martin Murray on April 27 in Martinez's native Argentina. Martinez won by three scores of 115-112, but he was decked in the eighth round.

Sanchez was asked if he now believes it's going to be tougher to land that fight against Martinez, who is 38. He's not so sure about that.

"I think you have to give credit to Martin Murray," Sanchez said. "Martin Murray fought a good fight. He's a tough, big kid."

Sanchez said there is no way Martinez suddenly got old since looking so good in a victory over Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in September (though Martinez did get floored in the 12th round of that fight). Sanchez said Martinez fought differently than he fought against Chavez, perhaps because he was in his homeland.

"He's trying to look good, he's trying to do things he maybe shouldn't have done," Sanchez said. "He didn't fight the way he did against Chavez."

[QUOTE=taansend]I don't want to be one of those "I told you so" people but from the minute the Murray fight was made I told everyone Martinez was in for a tough bout. His age, the lay-off & the injuries were always going to go against him coupled with Murray being a big, strong, fearless fighter....

The fight looks good on paper but no contest. GGG (W) by KO.

I will start by saying that I like Sergio and enjoy watching him fight and I am a fan. I also have to admit that saying he was exposed my have been jumping the gun a bit. However, I have said before and I will say in again I believe he is overrated. And why? I will tell you. He beat a very li...

"Exposed"....right. The only thing that was exposed was that Sergio has a boatload of injuries that need to heal up.
