#1 IBF, #2 WBO ranked light heavyweight Andrzej “Polish Prince” Fonfara (25-2, 14 KOs) will spend his next two weeks working in Abel Sanchez’s Summit Gym in Big Bear, California, and has already had a glimpse of Gennady Golovkin’s state of mind and level of preparation for his upcoming title defense against Curtis Stevens on November 2 in New York’s Madison Square Garden. .

“There’s a great atmosphere in the gym. It’s like family but you can tell that when it comes to workout, it’s all business,” said Fonfara in a interview conducted after the first 48 hours of his arrival on Monday. “I was running with Gennady in the morning, we had part of afternoon training together and there’s no doubt that he’s ready. He could fight Stevens now. Today!

“Golovkin is a great, always smiling guy and you have to constantly remind yourself that in the ring there’s a predator part of Gennady ready to emerge. For me, the Big Bear training experience is a first, but probably not the last. I will be back in the ring on December 6 Chicago card where my countryman, Krzysztof “Diablo” Włodarczyk will defend his WBC cruiser title against Italia’s Giacobbe Fragomeni.”
