Statement from Gennady Golovkin on the firing of Abel Sanchez

Statement from Gennady Golovkin on his decision to hire a new trainer:

I would like to announce that I have made a major decision for myself and for my career.  I want to build on what I have already achieved and continue to better myself.  Therefore, I will not be training with Abel Sanchez.  This was not an easy decision for me and it is not a reflection on Abel’s professional abilities.  He is a great trainer, a loyal trainer, and a Hall of Fame trainer.

I will be announcing my new trainer at a later date.  But today, I want to thank Abel for the lessons he taught me in boxing.

Golovkin is scheduled to return on June 8 at MSG against Steve Rolls.
