Gennady “GGG” Golovkin joined trainer Abel Sanchez and promoter Tom Loeffler on Wednesday for a 40-minute teleconference to discuss the September 16 middleweight fight with Saul “Canelo” Alvarez.
Promoter Tom Loeffler: “I think the winner’s really going to be considered the best fighter in the sport of boxing.”
Trainer Abel Sanchez: “(Gennady) has been a little frustrated the last couple years that he hasn’t had that marquee fight. This is it.”
Gennady Golovkin: “For me this fight is a history fight. Canelo, he’s a very special guy and I’m champion.”
Loeffler: “These are by far the closest odds for any fight Gennady has had.”
Golovkin: “If you respect boxing, watch my fight.”
