Eddie Reinoso, coach of WBA Super and WBC middleweight champion Saul Alvarez, believes that IBF middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin is no longer the fighter who had two competitive bouts against the Mexican.
“I don’t see the old Golovkin. I see that he slowed down. With Sergei Derevyanchenko he looked really bad. Many say that Golovkin was not well prepared. In the last fight [против Камила Шереметы] he looked bad too.
I saw that Gennady became a little slower in the fight with Sheremeta, an intermediate boxer. He is very disciplined, but I think his age is starting to show. The 38-year-old boxer is having a hard time fighting after a long amateur career in only one weight class. It’s very difficult, “said Eddie Reinoso.
We will remind, the coach of Alvarez also said that Golovkin does not know how to fight on waste.
