Canelo's Trainer: Chavez Jr. Fight is Pure Speculation

By Miguel Rivera

Edison Reynoso, the manager of WBC junior middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, said a possible fight with Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., in March of 2012, is pure speculation. Recently, Chavez's promoter Bob Arum of Top Rank disclosed that he's negotiating with Richard Schaefer of Golden Boy Promotions, and trying to make the fight for March 2012 in Las Vegas. Chavez, the WBC champion at 160, would face Alvarez at a catch-weight of 158-pounds, says Arum.

"These are pure rumors and speculation. We just arrived in Los Angeles and we've had no conversations with Golden Boy Promotions for that fight. We do the negotiations personally. On the the second week of October, we plan to meet with [Golden Boy President] Oscar de la Hoya [to discuss the next fight]. Chavez is not in our plans at the moment. For the coming year we can make that fight, but we also have other opponents in mind, like a possible fight with Miguel Cotto in May, or someone like Shane Mosley," Reynoso said.

Forget about Chaves. Shane, or Cotto would be a good High Profile test for Canelo. Personally I want to see him take on El Perro. I want to see how he handles relentless pressure, from a person that wont shy…

well, I think Jr's people want him to go down as "the greatest undefefeated 'champion' who never beat a ranked fighter" in boxing history -- current title head by Ray Boom Boom Mancini...

Chavez Jr will step it up after his 100th win it seems. I never seen a fighter so protected like Jr. This is ridiculous.

I actually would love for Canelo to face Mosley, but for one reason and one reason only... Can Canelo knockout another iron chinned fighter? That would be another huge statement if he did.

damn, i'd rather see alvarez try mosley at 154 then chavez jr for some odd reason. if he was to face the winner of cotto/margs, that'd be crazy, major props to him if he were to step up like that.
