Continued: On a mission: Middleweight champ Gennady Golovkin relishes busy schedule, preps for Macklin

Golovkin spends most of his life at Sanchez's gym in Big Bear, Calif., but he's not always isolated from family: His fraternal twin brother, Max, joined Golovkin's camp in the weeks before his latest fight. Max also was a talented amateur boxer, but he said he stopped pursuing his career when he recognized Gennady's abilities.

If Golovkin comes out of his fight with Macklin victorious and uninjured, he hopes to fight two more times this year, which means even more time in Big Bear and less in Stuttgart.

But after spending much of his 20s languishing outside the world stage and battling to get free of his previous promoter, Golovkin accepts the challenge to create his dream career in fast-forward time.

"We knew what kind of an onslaught it was going to be, fighting like this," Sanchez said. "We knew the pressures and commitments that come with it. The window of opportunity is so small for these guys. Let's just take the two or three years that we have guaranteed and make the most of them."
