GENNADY GOLOVKIN is looking for a new trainer. In a surprise announcement he revealed that he would part ways with Abel Sanchez, who has been a regular fixture in the Kazakh’s corner in all his major fights.

In a statement Golovkin said, “I would like to announce that I have made a major decision for myself and for my career. I want to build on what I have already achieved and continue to better myself. Therefore, I will not be training with Abel Sanchez. This was not an easy decision for me and it is not a reflection on Abel’s professional abilities. He is a great trainer, a loyal trainer, and a Hall of Fame trainer.

“I will be announcing my new trainer at a later date. But today, I want to thank Abel for the lessons he taught me in boxing.”
