Golovkin's Coach Doubts Age Will Be a Factor in Canelo Trilogy

Abel Sanchez, the trainer for former world champion Gennady Golovkin (38-1-1, 34 KOs), is still hoping that a deal can be made for a third fight with Mexican star Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (50-1-2, 34 KOs).

In September 2017, Canelo and Golovkin fought to a controversial twelve round split draw.

And two weeks ago, Canelo won a twelve round majority decision over Golovkin  to capture the WBC, WBA middleweight world titles at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The scores were 114-114, 115-113, 115-113.

While Sanchez was initially pushing to see Canelo and Golovkin fight each other in May of 2019, he now realizes that both boxers will likely go in different directions for the moment.

Canelo is planning to potentially fight in December, but many doubt that scenario will actually play out.

"I know that they’re both going to have a rest, I know that they need a rest. It’s a matter of Tom Loeffler and Oscar De La Hoya getting together and trying to see if it’s a possibility. I think that the fans want the fight, now it’s a matter of the promotions coming together and putting it on in September of next year," Sanchez told On The Ropes Boxing Radio.

By the time a third fight would take place, Golovkin will be 37-years-old.

There are many that already believe the hard puncher is physically declining in his last few fights.

Sanchez does not completely rule out the possibility of age coming into play, but he doubts it will.

"We want to say no but we have to be realistic [about age being a factor]. They looked so good this time, both of them. [Age] may play a part, but I don’t think it would. I think that they are both geared for each other as were Marquez and Pacquiao. If they can give us the same type of effort and the same type of fight, I don’t think you will see a difference," Sanchez said.

[QUOTE=TonyGe;19148599]Apparently I'm out of step with the majority. Yes Golovkin will lose again if he fights the same way. I know he won the rematch with his jab and boxing skills. Problem is he's not getting credit for his jabs.…
