Golovkin so focused on Alvarez he won’t talk about new baby daughter.

LAS VEGAS — Gennady Golovkin wasn’t going to discuss something that most men would be happy to talk about: the birth of his second child just a few days earlier. When the subject was broached during a sit down with reporters on Wednesday at the MGM Grand, Golovkin made it clear the topic was off...

When the subject was broached during a sit down with reporters on Wednesday at the MGM Grand, Golovkin made it clear the topic was off limits.

“Please don’t ask me about my family,” he said. “My focus is on my boxing business. Family is different.”

That also was about all Golovkin, 35, had to say last Friday afternoon in Los Angeles about the birth of his first daughter and his wife Alina, though his trainer, Abel Sanchez, offered more insight on the boxer’s priorities as he prepared for Saturday’s middleweight championship showdown with Saul “Canelo” Alvarez at T-Mobile Arena (HBO PPV, $69.95, 8 p.m. ET).

“He got a call on Friday that she was going to the hospital, but he didn’t leave the gym until 6 p.m. The baby was born at 4 p.m.,” Sanchez said, adding, “He told me, ‘The baby is going to come whether I’m there or not. I’ve already done my part.’ ”

That’s the kind of focus and determination to his craft that has brought Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs) to this point, a mega-showdown against Alvarez (49-1-1, 34) that is viewed as one of the biggest middleweight championship fights since the era of Marvin Hagler and Thomas Hearns. It is the destiny Golovkin charted for himself since the native of Kazakhstan won a silver medal in the middleweight division at the 2004 Olympics in Athens and embarked on a professional career that was slow to take root.

He made the decision to move to the United States in 2012 and began training in Big Bear, Calif., under Sanchez, who saw the power and speed and knew “Triple-G” could be special. “Most of all, he had heart,” Sanchez said.

Golovkin was taught to cut off the ring, apply constant pressure and develop a crowd-pleasing style by finishing his opponents. The trainer calls it “Mexican style” boxing.

“If we don’t give [promoters] something to market, then it’s impossible for them to do their job,” Sanchez said.

Golovkin had his “Hello, world” moment five years ago, when he made his HBO debut. Though he collected various middleweight championship belts and put together a string of 23 consecutive knockouts at one point, he lacked the signature fight to make him a crossover star. Beating Alvarez, the boxing icon from Mexico, would do that.

“This is the fight that we’ve been working for,” said Tom Loeffler, Golovkin’s promoter. “Every fight in Gennady’s career since he made his HBO debut and every fight since then, this is really the fight that we’ve been working for.”

Loeffler came on board in 2012 when Golovkin signed with K2 Promotions, headed by the Klitschko brothers. Loeffler had a good relationship with HBO and Madison Square Garden and sold them on Golovkin’s knockout prowess and regal manner.

Golovkin has fought five times in either the Garden Theater or the big arena in the past five years and he quickly became a fan favorite because of his relentless punching power. He sold out each of his fights on Garden property and other venues such as the Forum in Inglewood, Calif., and the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif.

“That was the blueprint,” Loeffler said, “not to build him in small casinos that were obscure. I knew with Gennady’s talent and his pedigree and just his willingness to fight that we needed to build him in the biggest markets.”

“If you think you’re going to lose the fight or you think you’re getting knocked out, that’s when people start pricing themselves out,” Loeffler said. “Opponents or champions even weren’t willing to get in the ring with him. Now that Canelo has agreed, all the knockouts, all the training, all the hard work, all the sacrifice that Gennady’s made has been built toward this exact fight in his career.”

This will be Golovkin’s first fight in Las Vegas. It’s a natural fit. When he saw his picture on the MGM marquee, his response was: “Nice face.”

It is Mexican Independence Day Weekend and most of a sold out T-Mobile Arena will be rooting for Alvarez, the cinnamon-haired former WBC middleweight champion who looked fast and strong in beating Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in May.

Sanchez said the second half of the bout could be “a street fight.” Golovkin is more than ready.

“For me it’s important to me who is better and who is champion,” he said. “I’ll bring my belts. This is my fight. I’m the boss. Not Canelo. I’m the champion.”
