Canelo's Trainer: Nobody Right Now Can Beat Mayweather

By Luis Sandoval

Saul “Canelo” Alvarez is just weeks away from his showdown with tough Mexican rival Alfredo “Perro” Angulo as he will try and bounce back from his defeat last September at the hands of the sport’s number one pound for pound fighter Floyd Mayweather.

Alvarez was the 45th victim to fall to Mayweather who boasts an undefeated record of 45-0 and only has 4 more fights left in both his Showtime contract and likely his boxing career. Mayweather is set to fight again on May 3rd against WBA welterweight champion Marcos Maidana, and Canelo’s manager/trainer Jose “Chepo” Reynoso feels the Argentine fighter will be unable to crack the “Mayvinci” code.

“I think anyone can complicate the [Mayweather] style; but its one thing to complicate and another to win. I see it very complicated. I’m not against any opponent of Mayweather, on the contrary I wish [Maidana] the best but it’s too complicated to beat Mayweather,” Reynoso would tell BoxingScene and Constantino Garcia.

“He’s very difficult because Mayweather – and I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – Mayweather is a fighter who comes to win. It doesn’t matter to him how he wins. If he puts on a show or not or if the people come out happy. He doesn’t care about that. He cares about winning and he does it how he knows how and up until now, he hasn’t lost a fight. He’s beat everyone”.

Reynoso matched wits with Mayweather last September but he and his fighter came up short when they couldn’t figure out their opponent. Chepo admits it was a bad night for them but they can find solace in the fact that it was a learning experience and they will continue to move forward.

While they were not able to hand Mayweather his first defeat, Reynoso doesn’t think anyone in the boxing landscape right now will be able to do it either.

“I think people pay to see [Mayweather] because they want to see him lose but he hasn’t given them that enjoyment. So I think with Mayweather, I don’t see anyone in sight, for the moment, that could cast a shadow over him.”

I too believe that nobody at this moment can beat Mayweather. (Obviously Manny has/had a big chance but lets not go there...) I find it kind of weird that the trainer of the guy he has just fought is saying…

[QUOTE=hugh grant;14270478]So its if Floyd don't fight regularly and carefully picks who he fights, no one will beat him. [B]If he picked Sergio like Miguel did, or picks Pac like Miguel did, then Floyd may also lose[/B]. Its funny how…
