By Salvador Rodriguez

Jose 'Chepo' Reynoso, manager and trainer of WBC/WBA junior middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-0-1, 30KOs), says his boxer entered training camp at Big Bear weighing 165-pounds. 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. Reynoso says there will be multiple sparring partners and Canelo would reach 130-rounds by the time of the fight. There is a nutritionist, someone in charge of the food, and several other staffers brought in for the biggest camp of Canelo's career.
