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.

Reynoso says there will be multiple sparring partners and Canelo would reach 130-rounds by the time of the fight.
