Canelo Begins Tough Camp, May Spar Up To 120 Rounds

By Salvador Rodriguez

Former junior middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-1-1, 30KOs) and his team began a tough training camp in San Diego for the scheduled March 8th showdown against Alfredo "Perro" Angulo (22-3, 18KOs) at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The fight will headline a Showtime Pay-Per-View event.

Today, Canelo will begin sparring with three aggressive sparring partners who will emulate the come-forward style of Angulo.

"We arrived [last] Saturday and Sunday we visited the places where we plan to run and where he will train in the afternoon," said trainer Jose "Chepo" Reynoso. "We still expect three sparring partners that will be sent to us by Golden Boy Promotions. We need strong fighters who will come forward throwing punches."

"People know that a fighter with power can change the situation in one big swoop. We will prepare a hundred percent. We must be well prepared, 100%. We know that he is a dangerous opponent, and he'll be very hungry because a win would open the door to great opportunities."

Why are people always finding something to hate about. Canelo has a good chance at stopping Angulo. Canelo has power, great body punching ability, and turns up when his opponent is against the ropes, especially on an opponent with less…
