GGG Downplays “Father-Son” Relationship With Sanchez
In the wake of the end of their partnership, Abel Sanchez has said numerous times that he viewed Gennady Golovkin as a son.
Golovkin, who announced new trainer Jonathon Banks last weekend, didn’t see it that way.
“Well, let’s stop talking about son and father, father and son,” Golovkin said, according to his translator in an interview with Boxing Scene.
“This is Abel’s game, Abel’s line. I know exactly what happened, so I don’t think it’s that important, what he said about father and son. It’s just all playing games on Abel’s side.”
While Sanchez is still seething from the dissolution of their partnership, GGG is at peace with it because they were able to discuss it face-to-face.
“Well, I feel very comfortable because me and Abel were able to actually sit down and talk to each other and decided what to do,” Golovkin said. “And as far as what’s going on in the media, the show is continuous. I know it’s from the inside, so I don’t think it’s very important, what’s going on right now.”
Golovkin will make his debut with Banks in his corner on June 8th, fighting Steve Rolls inside Madison Square Garden.
