Golovkin's Trainer: I Don't Think Sergio Martinez Fights Us

By Bill Emes

Abel Sanchez, trainer of WBA/IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (28-0, 25KOs), has told BoxingScene.com, that he doesn't expect WBC champion Sergio Martinez to fight his boxer any time soon. Martinez has several other options with less of a risk factor, says Sanchez, and he doesn't see Martinez, getting close to the age of 40, take a big risk by stepping in the ring with Golovkin. Martinez will return to action in the first half of 2014 after recovering from multiple injuries - and Miguel Cotto is a possible opponent. Golovkin is back on February 1 in Monte Carlo.

"I don't think Sergio will fight us. I think Sergio has a fight against Cotto and that's a big money fight for him. Why take a chance against a big, strong middleweight like Gennady when Sergio is getting up in age and doesn't really need someone like Gennady. People will consider him the middleweight king until someone beats him, but I think Gennady has proved that he belongs right along side him in consideration," Sanchez told BoxingScene.com.

[QUOTE=Golovkin;13901504]Sergio is dead scared. Even his promoter said something like "I'm not throwing him against that monster". I find it funny how Martinez was all vocal about Chavez Jr and when Gennady became the biggest name to fight he hasn't…

[QUOTE=Weltschmerz;13901526]Martinez will probably avoid GGG, and it's understandable due to the reasons stated in the article. But it's fine really; GGG is the new middleweight king. And he will probably want to go to 168 for bigger money fights as…

At 40 years of age and with the injuries piling up, I have no problem with Martinez going after the money fights at this stage of his career. He's earned it! Cotto and Canelo should be top priority for him.
