Gennady Golovkin's trainer, Abel Sanchez, thinks there is a possibility that GGG could face Mayweather Jr after all.

Sanchez thinks that if Golovkin scores an impressive victory against Martin Murray in February than fans will put pressure on the Money Man to step up and take on the unbeaten Kazakhstan. But Mayweather Jr has maintained that 2015 might be his final year in the sport.  

"Floyd understands the business as well as anybody in the boxing business and if it's not a profitable fight and Golovkin does well against Murray, Floyd has got some decisions to make," Sanchez said. "Floyd's about making the biggest fights and if Golovkin is the biggest fight, I'm sure that he'll consider it."

GGG is 31-0 with 28 knockouts. He is the reigning WBA middleweight champion and recently destroyed Marco Antonio Rubio inside of two rounds to retain his title.

Sanchez believes that Triple G could knockout Mayweather if given the chance.

"I don't think he would stop him like he did with Rubio, Floyd Mayweather is a heck of a fighter. Floyd Mayweather has proven that every time somebody speaks up, he shuts them up. He has 47 fights that he has won. We can talk all we want but until he steps in the ropes and we have to deal with Floyd, we'll find out. I am confident that Gennady stops him within twelve rounds," Sanchez said.

Rumors of a superfight between Mayweather and  Manny Pacquiao have bubbled up again. If  in their long-proposed super fight next year. But if the Pacman has a lackluster effort against non-entity Chris Algieir, Sanchez believes the opportunity for Triple G to step in may surface.  

"I think we have to wait on that one until the Algieri fight to see how good Pacquiao looks," Sanchez said in an interview with On The Ropes Boxing Radio. "If he doesn't look good even if he wins, then it's not a profitable fight for Floyd."
