Canelo's Trainer Continues To Call For Alfonso Gomez

By Miguel Rivera

Edison Reynoso, the trainer of WBC junior middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, has continued to call for a fight with Alfonso Gomez (23-4-2, 12KOs). Reynoso mentioned Gomez last week as a possible candidate, but in several recent interviews he started calling Gomez a "preferred opponent" for September 17. Reynoso doesn't like the idea of his boxer facing Ricardo Mayorga, based on the Nicaraguan's track record of losing almost every major fight. Alvarez is going to be part of the Floyd Mayweather-Vitor Ortiz pay-per-view broadcast. Alvarez's portion of the show is expected to take place in Mexico or Los Angeles, where Gomez has a local following.
