Abel Sanchez, the trainer of IBO/WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (27-0, 24KOs), doesn't believe any of the statements that are coming from WBO champion Peter Quillin (29-0, 21KOs), who wants to unify the titles with "GGG." According to Sanchez, if Quillin really wants the fight then he needs to have his manager or his promoter contact K2 Promotions, who handle Golovkin. Quillin returns on October 26th against an opponent to be determined in Atlantic City. Golovkin defends against Curtis Stevens on November 2 in New York City.
"If he really wanted to fight Golovkin, then he would tell his people - [Al] Haymon or Oscar [De La Hoya] or whoever that makes the decisions for him, because he doesn't seem to have a backbone to make them. Gennady Golovkin is fighting main events on HBO, main events. Peter Quillin is fighting undercard fights on Showtime. He needs to tell whoever in his camp that he wants to fight Golovkin and come fight on HBO because that's where Golovkin fights, in main events," Sanchez told BoxingScene.com.
