Gennady Golovkin changes weight range
The coach of the world middleweight champion, Kazakhstan boxer Gennady Golovkin (36-0, 33 KOs), under the WBA (Super), IBO, WBC and IBF versions (36-0, 33 KOs), Abel Sanchez said that his ward will soon rise to a different weight range, Vesti.kz reported.
"I can imagine how Golovkin will rise to 168 pounds for the right fight, but then will go down back to 160. I guess he will fight for one and a half year and will remain at 168 pounds. And, perhaps, in three years he will stop between 168 and 175 pounds.
But the promoters and managers will look what will be the best for the career of Golovkin. Also it depends on if we can organize big fights in this weight, and not just talk about them, namely, to make them," Sanchez said in an interview with World Boxing News.
Let`s add that on March 18 in New York Golovkin is planning the title defense. His opponent will be regular WBA middleweight champion American Daniel Jacobs.
Earlier Sanchez eliminated that Golovkin will rise in weight immediately after the fight with Jacobs, as he has obligations and unfinished tasks in the middleweight.
