Eric Gomez Blasts Abel Sanchez For Canelo Comments
Abel Sanchez has been the most vocal critic of Canelo Alvarez, since the Mexican star tested positive for Clenbuterol, a drug commonly found in Mexican cattle.
Eric Gomez, the President of Golden Boy Promotions, who promote Alvarez, claims that Sanchez’ comments don’t bother him, as Sanchez is looking for excuses for when Alvarez beats Golovkin on May 5th.
“Abel is always barking, but you know what they say a ‘dog that barks, it does not bite,'” Gomez told Jad El Reda.
“For me, he’s worried because of this fight. He knows that Saul [can] beat his fighter. He’s looking to make excuses after the fight. ”
When asked on whether or not the fight between Alvarez and Golovkin is still on, Gomez believes fans can keep their plans for May 5th.
“I’m 100% sure that this fight is going to take place. “We have sent data, all the information we have, everything, [to the Nevada State Athletic Commission]. In the end, when they finish the investigation we can talk and publicly and provide the details of the situation. They are preparing well because the fight will happen. If they think the fight is going to be canceled, they are very wrong.
Gomez also claimed, in a story published by Boxing Scene, that Alvarez will never allow this again, as he will be focusing on his diet even when he’s not in camp.
“Between fights is when they eat their sweets, their chocolates, their cookies, if they drink, they drink. This is what is happening here, he was not in training, he was not in his camp and he did not take care of the diet.”
