Canelo's Coach: Catch-Weight Will Backfire on Mayweather

By Miguel Rivera

According to trainer and manager Edison Reynoso, WBC/WBA 154-pound champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-0-1, 30KO) will be even faster for his scheduled fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26KO) on September 14 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

The fight is taking place at a catch-weight of 152-pounds. Reynoso claims Mayweather was the one who demanded a catch-weight in order to finalize the fight, but he believes the weight of 152 will backfire on the pound-for-pound king - because the trainer says Canelo will be a lot faster due to the lower weight.

"The speed will be even faster because he will be going under 154-pounds. Saul is already a quick fighter [at 154-pounds]. He needs to be strong and be attentive as we prepare our fighting strategies. We are going to have two months of preparation, and Saul will be faster than ever before," said Reynoso.

"We will train for two monthss in Big Bear, about eight to 10 weeks.......just as we have done before, we'll be working hard and at the same time planning strategies. Saul is a disciplined fighter, an athlete in every sense of the word. Therefore preparation will always have a minor amount of changes."

"We are going to practice several strategies to confront a fighter who almost has 50 fights and 18 years of experience. We can not change the way we fight. We must continue to build on what we have."

[QUOTE=asda333;13532313]I think canelo should go to a weight where he is fast and powerfull and come fight night he can just pay the bill (i don't what they call the charge for coming over the weight) and then beat him…

Well damn if Canelo's trainer is saying that Canelo will be even faster at 152 as opposed to 154 then why did they put up a such a fuss about Canelo going to 152? Seems like they would have jumped…
