At first glance, trainer Abel Sanchez comes across as one of the more respectful and modest guys that you will meet in boxing.

And while the veteran trainer is indeed a reserved person at times, Sanchez has a way of being completely unabashed with his thoughts on many facets of the sport.

Throughout any given year, Sanchez’s Summit Gym in Southern California’s Big Bear Mountain plays host to a bevy of world-class talent. At the moment, Sanchez is just a few days away from reconnecting with his star fighter, WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin, who is set to hit camp shortly in advance of his Nov. 2 bout with Curtis Stevens.

While Stevens wasn’t the ideal opponent in Sanchez’s mind, the trash-talking and hard-hitting Brooklyn native will surely make for an interesting lead up heading into the eighth defense of Golovkin’s title.

During a recent swing through his facility, I was able to catch up with Sanchez and discuss a few storylines in the sport.
