Gennady Golovkin’s old trainer names three fighters who could beat Canelo Alvarez, including the 100% KO champion

Former GENNADY GOLOVKIN coach claimed that there are only three fighters who can beat Canelo Alvarez.

Sanchez twice cornered GGG against the Mexican superstar, with the first ending in 2017 in a controversial draw that many believed Golovkin deserved the win before losing the rematch a year later.

Golovkin has since left the respected trainer but will fight Canelo in a trilogy match this September.

Sanchez still believes the Kazakh, along with David Benavidez and Artur Beterbiev, may be beating boxing’s pound-for-pound best.

He told FightHype earlier this year: “The only guys that can be a tough fight for Canelo are Beterbiev, Benavidez and a well-trained Golovkin.

“These are the only people who can beat Canelo. The ones that lead him down. Those are the only ones who can threaten him.”

Al Haymon’s Premier Boxing Champions offered Canelo the chance to fight Jermall Charlo (32) and Benavidez (25).

But he opted for Eddie Hearn’s two-fight deal against Dmitry Bivol on May 7 and then Golovkin in September.

Benavidez lobbied to fight Canelo but instead faced David Lemieux, the Canadian GGG beat in 2015.

Light heavyweight Beterbiev, 37, is the sport’s only 100 percent KO champion with an 18-0 record.

But Canelo opted to fight Russia’s Bivol instead, returning to 175lbs for the first time since beating Sergey Kovalev in 2019.
