Golovkin's Coach: Kellerman is One of The Most Biased on TV!

Abel Sanchez, the trainer for former middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin, does not have a high opinion of HBO broadcast analyst Max Kellerman.

Two weeks go, Canelo Alvarez won a twelve round majority decision over Golovkin to capture the WBC, WBA middleweight titles at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Golovkin suffered his first defeated, in a close contest, with scores of 114-114, 115-113 and 115-113.

During the HBO Pay-Per-View broadcast, there were many fans who felt Kellerman was very "pro-Canelo" during much of his commentary of the highly competitive action.

According to Sanchez, he never pays attention to the HBO on-air crew - Jim Lampley, Harold Lederman and especially Kellerman.

"You know what, I don't watch the HBO guys because all 3 of them are biased. Max Kellerman is in a world of his own, watching something other people aren't watching, so I don't really watch them. He's by far one of the most biased commentators on TV," Sanchez stated during an interview session on Reddit.

Sanchez believes his fighter won the contest, with a 7 to 5 round margin (115-113).

Going into the final round, Sanchez felt Golovkin was up by one round and begged his boxer to win the twelfth round - which he believes he did.

"Absolutely, I score every round, I keep it in my head. I was, in the 12th, I felt we were 1 round up. I felt it was 6-5 going into the 12th, so I just wanted the 12th round to be more decisive. Not that I thought we were 6-5, but I took into account we were in Vegas, it was more 7-4 really, but taking into consideration where you're at. That's why I tried to implore him that I needed this round just to be sure," Sanchez said.

Sanchez has nothing against the judges and there is no big issue with the decision, but he obviously wants his boxer to secure a trilogy fight with Canelo.

Kellerman is big eyed fool but team GGG really needs to stop crying about everything they can think of to deflect from the fact their guy didn’t show up

He should have directed that towards Jim Lampley. He wears the crown.

Anti GGG idiots on here doing all they can to sell another fraud win like they did for Andre Ward. The hate and envy is real from certain lower levels of usa demographics.
