Sanchez--Gennady-

“G4”

TRAINER MEDIA ROUNDTABLE QUOTES

Abel Sanchez, Graham Shaw, Fred Jenkins & Adam Booth

New York City (July 24, 2014) Trainers for all four featured fighters on the G4 World Championship Boxing event this Saturday night, July 26 held court with the media at Madison Square Garden today to discuss their charges’ upcoming battles.

Present were ABEL SANCHEZ for Gennady Golovkin, GRAHAM SHAW for Daniel Geale, FRED JENKINS for Bryant Jennings and ADAM BOOTH for Mike Perez.

ABEL SANCHEZ (Gennady Golovkin)

“This is a thinking man’s fight, the adjustments we make in the corner will determine the fight.”

“Geale will get hit somewhere and that will change his aggressiveness.”

“Geale will not run, he will be cautious and use his boxing ability.”

“Nobody at 160 can stand the power of Gennady.”

“No one at 154 or 160 can stay with Gennady for 12 rounds.”

“Gennady would go down to 154 to fight Floyd, at 168 there are six or seven different guys.”

“They are say they want to fight him, they all say they want to fight him, different story about getting in the ring with him.”

“We started four years ago, I told him he would be the best 160 in the world

and the most avoided. He listened to me and doesn’t question me. He does his job and I do mine.”

“He’s never said no to me about anything in regards to his training.”

“There’s so much more in the gym than what we’ve seen.”

GRAHAM SHAW (Daniel Geale)

“Daniel’s come to win a belt, not just be another name on Gennady’s list.”

‘There’s a risk in every fight, Daniel is willing to fight 12 hard rounds.”

“Daniel must engage Gennady to win.”

“We’re ready for anything, we need to win the first two rounds and start fast.”

“Gennady’s a big puncher, but Daniel typically doesn’t get hit too often.”

“He’s tougher than people think.”

FRED JENKINS (Bryant Jennings)

“Anytime he’s been put to the challenge, he always succeeds, the harder the challenge the harder the fight. “

“If Perez presses the fight, Bryant will be there to meet him. He will control the pace with his skills.”

“Perez is fast and accurate, we expect the best of Perez.”

“We’ve had excellent sparring, I’ve had to hold Bryant off until fight time.”

“Fighters like Bryant only comes along once every 50 years.”

“Bryant loves the publicity, it’s a dream that he has been waiting on.”

ADAM BOOTH (Mike Perez)

“We started 16 weeks ago, but took off four weeks for his (shoulder) injury to heal.”

“He’s the most skilled heavyweight I’ve trained.”

“If he can fulfill his potential, Mike will be a very special heavyweight.”

“His manager Patrick Thomas contacted me, we had a trial for five days.”

‘It’s possible for a Mike Tyson and Pernall Whitaker combination for him to

fulfill with his skill set.”

“Jennings is tough and strong but Mike has that and much more

elements to beat him.”

As we all know, anything said at a formal press conference should be taken with a grain of salt. However, I've never known Abel Sanchez to tell a lie.

If memory serves, Sanchez's first top-notch fighter was Terry Norris. They had a parting of the ways in late 1992 and it appeared that Sanchez would drift into obscurity. Instead, he became one of the sport's top trainers. If he's still a no-name, that's because another California trainer, Freddie Roach, casts a very long shadow.

Terry Norris stayed in the game too long, He continued fighting into 1998. I'll always wonder if he would have been prodded to leave the sport sooner if he had stayed with the same trainer.

Geale is not going to be an easy out for Golovkin. I am really looking forward to this one tomorrow night.

Norris' career didn't end well. First, he appeared to be groomed for a big money fight with Felix Trinidad. Don King had them on the same card a few times "marinating" that fight. Well, it never happened as Norris filed a lawsuit against King and then left for Top Rank. Then Norris was being groomed for a future fight with Oscar De La Hoya for big money. He received a nice payday for what many thought would be an easy tune up/showcase fight on a De La Hoya undercard to face Keith Mullings with De La Hoya coming next. Well Mullings pulled off the huge upset and that was the beginning of the end for Norris' career. He had two more losses before being done for good including taking a battering in his last bout.

ArneK. says:

And things have gone from bad to worse for Terry Norris. He has significant memory loss and takes classes in speech therapy and balance therapy.

Norris reportedly had 295 amateur fights (perhaps more). I've always said that there comes a point in the career of a world-class amateur boxer where the law of diminishing returns kicks in. To stay in the amateur ranks beyond this point is counter-productive if the boxer has designs on a pro career.

Radam G says:

Abel Sanchez is another late, great "Champ" Chaney -- a great, invisible, arch-master trainer/coach/teacher/mentor/icon.

Because of so many look-at-me-and-what-I'm-doing trainers getting all da media luv, quiet just-doing-da-d@mn thang [$¡¢] trainers get overshadowed.

All Indianapolis-base Champ Chaney did through the 1960$, 70$, 80$ and 90$ were to produced amateur and professionals champions and star boxers. And he got no kudos and little press for it. Maybe because a lot of his grooming products would be stolen by greedy, fibbing, taking-the credit trainers.

A lot of the same has happened to Abel Sanchez. They both should be in the HOF. Holla!

Not quite so. In the amateur it is hit and not get hit. And if somebody breathe on you to hard, you will get an eight count.

I saw Terry through most of his amateur career and all of his pro career. He got messed and tore up from the floor up in the pros. His big brother Orlin had just as amateur scraps as Terry and more pro bouts.

Terry was just not -- your word -- "Bionic." And he came from being a hit-less amateur to an Imma-take-some-to-give-some professional pug. IMHO, an amateur career is never too long. A pro one is.

Ev'ybodee and dey momma know that pugs get/got messed up in the pros, not the amateurs. Look at trainer Ronny Shields. He, himself had nearly 300 amateur bouts from 13 to 22 years old. He quit the pros at 29 years old. And holla his homeboy "James "Bubba" Busceme. Bubba had over 500 amatuer bouts from 8 to 21years old. He came into the pros at 22 years old and boxed until 31, while taking a total of three years off with long breaks. Holla!
