Sanchez: Golovkin Would Go To 154 For Mayweather

By Edward Chaykovsky

There are not many fights enticing enough for WBA/IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (29-0, 26KOs) to drop down to 154-pounds - but the chance to face Floyd Mayweather Jr. (46-0, 26KOs) is certainly the most desired by Golovkin, according to trainer Abel Sanchez.

If Golovkin is unable to secure the big fights at middleweight, he may explore his options in other weight divisions. Later tonight at New York's Madison Square Garden, Golovkin will get his toughest test to date when he faces two-time middleweight champion Daniel Geale (30-2, 16KOs) in an HBO televised fight.

"Gennady would go down to 154 to fight Floyd, at 168 there are six or seven different guys," Sanchez said. "They all say they want to fight him, it's a different story when it comes to getting in the ring with him."
 
"We started four years ago, I told him he would be the best middleweight in the world
and the most avoided. He listened to me and doesn't question me. He does his job and I do mine."

[QUOTE=The Noose;14797779]True. But Floyd has been able to outbox and out move many opponents without needing power to do so. I can see Floyd outboxing GGG. But can he go 12 without getting hurt? I think its highly possible. GGG…
