In this video interview caught by FightHub, Gennady Golovkin’s trainer Abel Sanchez talks a little about the Broner-Garcia fight as well as what he thinks about Vasyl Lomachenko potentially taking on Mikey Garcia.
Sanchez on Broner-Garcia:
“You know what, I thought that, um, it’s a good fight for Mikey. I think Broner unfortunately is a talent that’s just been wasted. He has just wasted so much, and I feel sorry for Mike Stafford, his coach. He finally gets a guy that can really do something — no, he’s not Mayweather but he’s a talent.
“I thought that Mikey at 140 might not be the puncher that he was at 126 ‘cause he hit Broner with everything but Mikey looked good, man. He’s a very good technical fighter, he’s very sound.”
On Garcia potentially moving up to 147:
“I would hate to see that. I don’t think above 35 is a good weight for him. 35 is probably the best weight for him.”
On what fights he would want to see Garcia in next:
“I would like to see him fight Linares - that would be a good fight.
On Garcia potentially facing Lomachenko:
“Lomachenko eats him up. I think so. That’s my opinion, I think Lomachenko eats him up. I think Lomachenko is one of the best fighters around right now.”
On who he’d pick between Lomachenko and Rigondeaux:
“Lomachenko. I think Rigondeaux’s a little too small.”
