well i think the Abel Sanchez - GGG partnership is having an incredible run. Abel has been GGG's trainer since mid 2008; that's 24 straight victories, all but one by stoppage.
but would GGG have done the same with another elite trainer (eg, Freddie Roach)? Probably not, but not because others are not as good as Abel, but because training in a smaller gym with fewer fighters, in a remote setting, and at altitude, all seem to be ideal for GGG
whether Abel could take an elite prospect that walked into his gym tomorrow and turn him in to a superstar faster than could, say Freddie Roach or Virgil Hunter--i have no idea. The fighter-trainer relationship is highly personal and depends on the unique idiosyncrasies of both. Either they mesh or they don't. For instance, Danny Garcia is certainly a successful professional among the elite; likewise, Chris Eubank Jr has 25 wins and only one loss; he's only 27 so plenty of time to improve. But i doubt either Angel Garcia or Chris Eubank Sr would be successful training different fighters who they aren't related to by blood.
Good post. Abel takes a lot of flak but Gennady seems happy
Ricky Hatton and Billy Graham had a great working relationship
javen sugar hill on the rise. soon he will get more recognition
but i think maybe abel sanchez is on top right now.
virgil hill i dont like the guy but hes prolly up there. him n andre have heck of a bond. and virgil took on some tough challenges with berto , khan, angulo, and fonfara all the fights those guys took . they still had sum success but those guys already been thru wars and got beat up then they went to virgil so that was a tough task.
freddie is still up there. his offensive approach is great for certain fighters.
If you want to talk about guys who trained more than one fighter to be a champion from scratch, then we're talking about Cus D'Amato and Robert Garcia Sr.
Did Beristain have Lopez and Marquez from the beginning?
James Buddy McGirt.
