Golovkin's Trainer Still Hopes Peter Quillin Bout Happens

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

Abel Sanchez, trainer of IBO/WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (29-0, 26KOs), still hopes that a unification can happen with WBO middleweight beltholder Peter Quillin (31-0, 22KOs).

Golovkin will defend his titles on July 26th against Daniel Geale at New York's Madison Square Garden. Quillin is expected back before the end of the year. He dominated challenger Lukas Konecny over twelve rounds in April.

Last year, making Golovkin-Quillin was difficult due to the network rivalries and the bickering between promoters, but now Golden Boy Promotions is restructuring and willing to work with everyone.

Even with Golden Boy's new outlook, Sanchez believes Quillin's manager, Al Haymon, will likely prevent the fight from happening.

"I would hope so [that a Quillin fight can happen]. The best fighters need to fight the best fighters. Unification fights need to happen. Unfortunately the Cold War was happening and now it's not. Hopefully Peter Quillin and his people [accept a fight], which may not be possible because he's going with the Haymon side. He's not going to stick around Golden Boy I don't think. But if it happens - great. That's great for boxing," Sanchez told BoxingScene.com.

He's either saving himself for lemuiex or another Konecny type fighter.

Quillin is currently ranked P4P number 1 in belt-hostage-holding why he should sacrifice his hard earned place and fight Golovkin? Golovkin needs to earn his shot like all the other Quillin opponents and drop his belts and fight unranked bums…

I got the answer to that: Nope!
