Sanchez on Canelo: I Thought He Don't F*** Around? He Ran!

Abel Sanchez, trainer for IBF, IBO, WBA, WBC middleweight champion Gennady 'GGG' Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs), is not letting Canelo Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs) off the hook for last Saturday night.

Canelo and Golovkin fought to a controversial twelve round split draw at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

One judge scored it 118-110 for Canelo - which created a mountain of controversy in the aftermath. The two remaining scores had it 115-113 Golovkin and 114-114 for the draw.


There is a rematch clause that Canelo can exercise. He plans to fight again in May, but no word has come down to confirm that Golovkin will be the opponent in the other corner.

Sanchez respects Canelo as a fighter, but he doesn't respect the way he fought during some of the rounds last weekend.

The veteran trainer feels strongly that Canelo failed to make good on his pre-fight comments - including the infamous statement of 'Mexicans don't f*** around' - which Canelo stated last year as a warning to Golovkin.

Canelo also vowed to make a big splash at 160-pounds by knocking Golovkin out.

According to Sanchez, he saw nothing but running from Canelo for at least six to seven rounds in the fight. And he says Canelo's fight strategy was the reason why the sold-out crowd had vowed their displeasure at the end of the contest.

"Canelo is a good fighter. He showed that he belongs there with the middleweights. But what I did see, and it was a displeasure from the fans. When you say that you're going to do something... What was that saying he said.. that 'Mexicans don't [f***] around.' And he talked all of this crap before the fight that he was going to knock [Golovkin] out - and then all he did was run for six or seven rounds. That's why the Mexicans were booing him. That's why his fans were booing him. The draw doesn't take away from that. They know who won," Sanchez said.

This is funny, ginger runs and his fan call that a master piece. He made ggg look like a robot. Then Lara make him look like a beginner and the same fans call Lara a runner...

someone should tell Sanchez that in a real street fight, you have the ability to run ropes... [IMG][/IMG]

[QUOTE=Raggamuffin;18078919]What Sanchez really meant to say was, "Canelo, how come you didn't stand still like GG's past opponents"? Lol[/QUOTE] remember when Pac said ''he dindu nuffin...if he stay in one place...'' :dance:
