Canelo's Trainer: We Will Control The Fight's Pace - Not Golovkin!

By Miguel Rivera

The handlers behind Mexican superstar Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs) are very confident of their boxer's ability to control the pace of his upcoming showdown with IBF, IBO, WBA, WBC middleweight champion Gennady "GGG" Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs).

Canelo will challenge Golovkin on September 16th, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The fight will headline a four fight HBO Pay-Per-View event.

For Canelo, this will be his first fight at the full middleweight limit of 160-pounds. This past May, he defeated county rival Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. at a catch-weight of 164.5, but prior to that bout he'd never fought beyond 155-pounds.

Golovkin's trainer, Abel Sanchez, believes the Mexican fighter will eventually be forced into a brawl - and that's when the contest will go downhill for him.

Canelo, who is trained by the team of Eddy Reynoso and Chepo Reynoso, are confident that nothing will be forced upon their boxer. They believe Canelo will only brawl if he personally decides to go in that direction.

 "I do not think [that Canelo will be forced to brawl], the fight will fought at the pace that Canelo wants," said Eddy Reynoso to ESPN Deportes. "We have the faculties to box and to make adjustments as well. [Canelo] is a fighter with more abilities [and he] can take advantage of them in the ring, and that will always make the difference in a fight."

"When you have a complete fighter, who knows how to do a lot of things [in the ring], he can take advantage of his qualities and that will be the big difference between one fighter and another."

Prior to the start of the ongoing training camp in California, Canelo and the Reynoso were already working in Guadalajara after the four-day promotional tour which took place in the United States and the UK, but they were not working at the level that they currently are at this moment."

Impossible with someone of the stature of canelo with his cement feet to beat a fighter like golovkin.

[QUOTE=TonyGe;17871360]Able was saying Golovkin wasn't trying to hurt Canelo in the sparring match. They were sparring for practise not to kill each other. This fight is going to be different. Apparently Canelo felt frisky and landed some hard punches and…
