Photos: Golovkin Putting in Work For Geale Showdown

Big Bear, CA - WBA/IBO Middleweight World Champion GENNADY “GGG” GOLOVKIN is currently entrenched at his training camp in Big Bear, California with noted trainer ABEL SANCHEZ preparing for his 11th world title defense against DANIEL GEALE for the “G4” event on Saturday, July 26 at New York City’s famed Madison Square Garden and Live on HBO World Championship Boxing® beginning at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT.


 
Having started training in late May, Golovkin will be fully prepared when be heads to the East Coast for fight week.
 
“This is a longer camp than normal but I haven’t fought since February 1 (KO7 – Osumanu Adama), it feels great to be back with Abel and the team,” said Golovkin. “Daniel Geale is a former world champion and this is the toughest fight of my career.”


 
“It took me a couple days when I got to camp to get comfortable but now camp is going well and I look forward to returning to Madison Square Garden.”
 
On Saturday night, Golovkin headed to the StubHub Center in Carson, California with his team to take in the World Championship Boxing card.
 
Owner of The Summit High Altitude Training Center in Big Bear, CA, Sanchez, who has trained Golovkin since June 2010, spoke about this training camp and their preparation for the Daniel Geale fight.


 
‘This Saturday night was a nice break, Gennady is a boxing fan and wanted to take in the fights from ringside instead of watching from camp. The fans love him and he enjoys signing autographs and taking pictures with them.”


 
Speaking specifically about Geale, Sanchez stated, “Geale boxes a little more, we’ve been very confident of the past opponents running away but we don’t anticipate that from him. Hopefully he will bring out the very best of Gennady. The better he is, the better it will be for Gennady to perform.”


 
“Geale is more accomplished, he’s a two-time world champion and he’s the most experienced boxer at the top level that we’ve fought. He’s got the most to gain and is on the cusp of being a world champion again. “
 
Regarding the specifics of Golovkin’s training, Sanchez continued, “On Monday, Wednesday and Friday we meet at the gym at 7:00 a.m. and run five miles per day. That’s followed by a gym session starting at 1:00 p.m. On Tuesday and Thursday’s we’ll do sprints instead of our morning run.”


 
About Golovkin’s diet, Sanchez said, “Not really a particular diet, no sugars, fats or sodas. Just a balanced diet, Gennady eats pretty much what he wants but he’s very smart about what he eats in camp.”
 
“The great Emanuel Steward said it best. Keep it as simple as possible for the fighter. It should not be a dramatic change as they get to another level.”

[QUOTE=House of Stone;14692361]lol at the two or three haters trying to undermine GGG by downplaying Geale.[/QUOTE] Geale is a worthy opponent but after seeing GGG train at BB and fight live i don't think Geale can survive those body shots.…

[QUOTE=chargerhemi06;14692344]Uh oh...looks like he got a rib injury from the looks of that elastic band around his mid-section. His little ass can't keep sparring those heavyweights.[/QUOTE] He's worn it before; doesn't mean he has a rib injury.

Golovkin seems to me like the coolest mofo in the world to hang out with.
