Celebrity News: Abel Sanchez knows that Gennady Golovkin, with his impressive record full of knockouts, still does not manage to settle well in the popular unconscious like a boxer that transcends the borders of this sport.
The Kazakh coach knows that his fighter needs a greater attention bout to reach the highest level of commercial success that others have achieved – such as Manny Pacquiao, Oscar De La Hoya, Floyd Mayweather, Canelo Alvarez.
In a telephone interview Wednesday with several media, Sánchez recalled that the fight with Mayweather positioned Canelo as a prominent figure in the industry.
Golovkin will be on September 16 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, in a showcase as big as never before in his career. His confrontation with Canelo is the kind of duels that people watch who do not watch boxing on a regular basis. And therefore the opportunity is unbeatable to attract more fans.
“I think Canelo fighting Mayweather, a few years back, when he was, portrays him as an elite fighter. Let’s say if Golovkin, or rather when Golovkin wins him on September 16, what I think is that it will put Golovkin as a super star, “said Sanchez, who later issued a warning saying that his fighter will do what he could not do Mayweather with the Mexican.
“Because I think GGG is going to dominate Canelo and do what Floyd could not do. September 16 will be a key day in Gennady’s career and I think people will remember it. But there are still some weeks left, I hope the night of 16 can continue saying the same thing. “
