Canelo's Trainer: Saul Will Come Back Even Stronger!

By Miguel Rivera

Trainer Chepo Reynoso is proud of former champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-1-1, 30 KOs), who suffered his first career defeat on Saturday night when he was outpointed by Floyd Mayweather Jr. (45-0, 26KOs) at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The fight happened at a catch-weight of 152-pounds, with Canelo losing his WBC and WBA world titles in the match. The 23-year-old Mexican star is already planning to return to the gym in the coming weeks.

"It is the first career defeat for Canelo. I had never seen him lose and the truth is it hurts. It saddens the entire team because we worked hard for the victory. But we also walked away with our heads held high, because there is no shame in losing to the best pound for pound fighter like Floyd. Mayweather did what he does best, he boxed and won rounds. He made a great fight. Canelo will keep going and he's going to give [the fans] many nights of glory. For now we are going to rest and we will discuss the fight and analyze what our flaws were. We'll try to make the best of these mistakes and this will provide us with experience for the future. But I assure you that Canelo will come back stronger, because he is a great champion," said Reynoso.
