Abel Sanchez, trainer of WBA/IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (29-0, 26KOs), says there is no fighter who can last the twelve round distance with the hard hitter from Kazakhstan. On Saturday night, Golovkin will face two-time middleweight champion Daniel Geale (30-2, 16KOs) at New York's Madison Square Garden.
"Nobody at 160 can stand the power of Gennady. No one at 154 or 160 can stay with Gennady for twelve rounds," Sanchez said.
And that includes Geale. Sanchez expects Geale to lose his aggression when Golovkin starts landing hard punches.
"Geale will get hit somewhere and that will change his aggressiveness. Geale will not run, he will be cautious and use his boxing ability," Sanchez said.
