Canelo Says "No Distractions" as Training Continues

By Ernesto Castellanos, notifight

WBC 154-pound champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (40-0-1, 29KOs) is working very hard and taking no shortcuts as he continues his training camp in Santa Monica, California. Canelo defends his title against Josesito Lopez on September 15th at the MGM Grand in Las Vgeas.

"I'm focused in a very comfortable house. The area where I'm at is pretty nice, near the beach and there are cinemas, restaurants and many places for entertainment, but I have not gone anywhere. My entire focus is on Josesito and the fight, and the last thing I want is a distraction," Canelo said.

"I intend to give a great fight, make the fans happy and step into the ring with the best preparation. I'm only thinking about this commitment, and when I'm at this stage of my job - nothing distracts my focus."

Canelo is taking part in two training sessions per day to get his body in the best shape possible.

"To achieve the fitness that I want, I need to do two workouts a day, under orders from [trainers] Eddy and Chepo Reynoso. After each daily preparation I'm only thinking about rest and not about going somewhere," Canelo said.

"To kill free time we have games, listen to music, watch movies. I start reading. I'm never bored, mostly because I'm always working. I never go out much because the climate can change and that could bring on cold, which could ruin everything."

Canelo says he currently weighs less than five pounds above the limit and has more than enough time to make weight.

Canelo's lying out his ass. This guy usually rehydrates up to 170 lbs after weigh in's. He expect's us to believe that he's only 5 pounds over the 154 lb. limit a month out before the fight. :bsflag:
