Even the Greats Feel Fear
And then there’s the delicate art of screwing a boxer's head on straight before a big fight.

Sanchez and another respected West Coast trainer, Max Garcia, joined us on Sunday’s Ringside Boxing Show…

Yes, fighters feel fear—and it doesn’t matter who they are: Ali, both Sugar Rays, Julio Cesar Chavez, and Jack Dempsey all felt that same tingle of anxiety as they stood face-to-face with their opponent while the referee gave final instructions.

That’s the word from Abel Sanchez, trainer of Terry Norris, Lupe Aquino, Miguel Angel Gonzalez and, currently, undefeated middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin.

Sanchez and another respected West Coast trainer, Max Garcia, joined us on Sunday’s Ringside Boxing Show to tell amazing tales and reveal stunning secrets about fear, ego, pre-fight hype, confidence and overconfidence, and the delicate art of screwing a boxer’s head on straight before a big fight—a scintillating, wide-reaching conversation that will educate even the most hardcore boxing fan.
