Alvarez vs Cintron Update, Ishida's Return, More

By Miguel Rivera and Alfredo Jaime Gomez, notifight.com

WBC junior middleweight champion Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez (38-0-1, 28KOs) will not train in Big Bear, California for his upcoming fight against Puerto Rico's Kermin Cintron (33-4-1, 28KOs) on November 26. Alvarez, who trained in Big Bear for recent fights with Alfonso Gomez and Ryan Rhodes, wants to avoid the possibility of getting sick from the climate change in California.

Edison Reynoso, Alvarez's coach, said - "Canelo's fight will be in Cancún or Mérida. We'll see where we're going to train [for the fight] because the low temperatures have already started in Big Bear. Cintrón has already signed the contract, and so has Álvarez. Canelo will begin [training for Cintron] on Wednesday with a session of three or four rounds."

Reynoso wants to place junior middleweight Nobuhiro Ishida (23-6-2, 8KOs) on the undercard in Mexico. Ishida is promoted by Alvarez's company, Canelo Promotions. The Japanese boxer has been inactive since the shocking first round stoppage of James Kirkland in April of this year. One possible opponent for Ishida, according to Reynoso, is Mexican veteran Jose Luis Cruz (41-8-2, 33KOs).

Alvarez-Cintron will headline an HBO televised tripleheader, with undefeated prospects Adrian Broner and Gary Russell Jr. in separate bouts.

Cintron Sparks him out...

I agreea. I would like to see Canelo take control and dictate the pace, but since Kermit is dangerous and can keep up with Canelo. I think Canelo will be looking for effective counter-punching and try to work outside-in.

[QUOTE=lefthook2daliva;11309633]:lol1: Ouch! I must have hit a nerve, huh? No, I don't usually read every post in every thread. Your statement was a cliche' fanboi-troll statement with an agenda and thus was derided as such with an appropriate cliche'. Now…
