Mago Abdusalamov Drops Sarmiento, Hires Danny Garcia

By Alexey Sukachev and Bill Kozloff (Allboxing.ru)

Magomed Abdusalamov (14-0, 14 KOs), WBA #14-ranked heavyweight sensation is preparing for his upcoming bout with Maurice Byarm (13-1-1, 9 KOs) under new guidance. Abdusalamov, who has already stopped two undefeated fellow prospects this year, faces Byarm on July 6 for the WBC USNBC Silver title at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. He is now trained by Danny Garcia Sr., who is also known for guiding Victor Ortiz to championship heights.

“We had several reasons for the change”, commented Boris Grinberg, Mago’s manager, to Allboxing.ru. “Pablo Sarmiento is a great coach but he doesn't have enough time to work with Magomed, he is too busy guiding Sergio Martinez. And secondly, he doesn’t speak English and that created a language barrier between him and Mago which hampered their mutual communication. We also have somewhat different points of view regarding the training process. For example, Mago thinks Pablo wasn’t paying much time to mitt exercises”.

“Now Magomed will train at KnuckleHeadz boxing gym under a guidance of coach Danny Garcia Sr.”, continued Grinberg. “Garcia is a part of the famous boxing family and he is also the trainer of former welterweight champion Victor Ortiz. Danny Garcia Jr, and Joseph “Hoss” Janik will assist Garcia Sr. in his work with our heavyweight hope”.

“I have already started my training with the new coach”, reflected Abdusalamov. “I have been approached warmly and enthusiastically. I also worked the bag and was given several notes how to improve my technique. All of the trainers were attentive to me, and the whole team looks to be solid and unified. I hope my trainers will help me prepare carefully for my future opponents, view tapes of their fights beforehand and give me valuable advice”.

this sounds like a good change for him but i think the real problem lies in his promoter\management team. they can't secure him quality airtime or opposition. they clearly do not pay enough to get a decent name to fight.

I thought one of the main reason why Ortiz left Robert Garcia was that he wanted a trainer all to himself and didn't want to share the attention with any other fighters in the gym.
