Sanchez: I Give Golovkin a 9 out of 10 for Geale Win

by David P. Greisman

It was a one-punch, third-round stoppage for Gennady Golovkin over Daniel Geale on Saturday night. Golovkin’s trainer, Abel Sanchez, said he rated the fighter’s performance a 9 out of 10.

Here’s why:

“I was asking him between the first and the second round and between the second and third round to stop searching for a shot, stop looking for his head,” Sanchez said at the post-fight press conference. “I wanted him to go to the upper body a little more, to the shoulders, and that shot would come. But he was hell bent on trying to knock him out early. He wasn’t listening. He did what he thought was best in there, and he’s the one that’s in there, so all I can do is ask from the outside.”
