Opinions have been all negative for the most part when it comes to Floyd Mayweather taking on Andre Berto. Abel Sanchez is the trainer of Gennady Golovkin and like many doesn’t like the fight. Sanchez feels it’s a tune-up fight and feels Mayweather will fight again before it’s all said and done.
“I think he fights again, I don’t think it’s over,” Sanchez told On The Ropes Boxing. “I think that Mayweather is too much of a historian and too much of a businessman to think that all he wants to do is finish out and hold the record.”
For 50-0, Sanchez feels he should go for a challenge and say he hopes Mayweather takes on a middleweight challenge.
“I think that he’s going to look for challenges beyond that, and if we’re in the mix, Golovkin has professed that as his dream fight for his career,” Sanchez said. “If it happens, I can promise you this, it won’t be a May 2nd fight, Golovkin will stop him.”
Sanchez feels former Mayweather foe, Manny Pacquiao will come back next year. Pacquiao is recovering from surgery that he had after the Mayweather fight this year. But unlike Mayweather, Sanchez doesn’t feel like Pacquiao will take a tune-up as his comeback fight.
“No, I think he’s at the level now where there is no tune up fights for him,” Sanchez said. “Unlike this fight coming up for Mayweather, I’m little disappointed that Mayweather took that route. I think that Pacquiao coming back will get a better opponent than Andre Berto.”
Sanchez feels that a guy in the running for a Mayweather fight should be the next opponent for Pacquiao, and that would be Amir Khan.
“He may fight Khan, I would love to see him and Khan. I think that fight would draw some interest.”
