By Salvador Rodriguez

They have about two montsh to lose 13-pounds for the contracted weight of 152-pounds against Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26KOs), taking place on September 14th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

There is a nutritionist, someone in charge of the food, and several other staffers brought in for the biggest camp of Canelo's career.
