Canelo Broke From Televisa Over Blame For Death

By Rene Umanzor

Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez (43-1-1, 31KOs) caused a serious stir in Mexico after announcing that his next fight, on July 12 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, would not be carried by Mexican network Televisa.

Canelo has been the network's star fighter for several years, but a serious allegation has led him to walk away - at least for the moment.

According to Canelo's trainer Jose 'Chepo' Reynoso, a magazine [Tv y Novelas] under the Televisa banner wrote an article a few weeks ago - where it blamed Canelo for the death of former world champion Javier "Chatito" Jáuregui.

Last December, the 40-year-old Jauregui suffered a serious stroke and died a day later at a hospital in Guadalajara.

The article made allegations that Canelo, despite Jauregui's health issues, was using the veteran for sparring to prepare for his ring return on March 8th, which came against Alfredo Angulo. Not only did the article claim that Canelo was using him for sparring, it claimed that Canelo held nothing back and gave Jauregui bad beatings during the sessions.

Canelo was furious with the article, as Jauregui was a close friend of the entire team. He was even more furious that Televisa would stand behind such an article.

"Saul is highly resentful because of some things that were said and Televisa did not protect him. A magazine published some things that are not true, and that magazine has the seal of Televisa, and that caused unrest across the team," Reynoso said.

"They reported that Jáuregui had died from a beating by Canelo and that is something terrible because you are accusing him of something that is not true. He was not a part of [Canelo's] sparring for this camp [for the March fight with Angulo]. We had other guys. [They didn't even bother] to investigate [the information] and that affected the whole team."

Don't know if any of these allegations are true... but the vibe I get from canelo watching his attitude and mannerisms on all access and in some fights is that he's a bully and a bi tch
