Golovkin, Sanchez on The Long Wait To Secure Canelo Clash

How frustrating was it to have to wait for this fight with Canelo?

“We have been talking about this fight for years. The last two years, I lose interest, because after every fight, Golden Boy said, 'No. OK, maybe next fight.'  I remember the situation after the Amir Khan fight, when I go into the ring.  Oscar De La Hoya said, 'This is a good day for us and I will call GGG's manager tomorrow.'  I think it was hard on the fans too.

“The fans are hungry for this fight.  After the Julio Cesar Chavez fight, I believed it is possible for us, and in June I see Canelo's face, and it is more serious.  He is ready.  This was not like Canelo not being ready.  It was Golden Boy not being ready.”

How frustrating was it to wait for this fight with Canelo to happen?  Is Gennady saving his anger for fight night?  What do you expect Gennady to accomplish on Sept. 16?

“I've never seen Gennady frustrated except when Sturm refused to fight him and the WBA kept giving him opportunities to avoid his mandatory obligation. I could also see him getting frustrated last year when three of the top middleweights (Canelo, Saunders, Eubank) wouldn't fight him and then Brook stepped up to the plate to save the day last September in London.”
