Canelo's Trainer: We're Going To Make A lot of Noise at 160!

By Ryan Burton

Even though former champion Julio César Chávez Jr. didn't put up much of a fight in his May 6th bout against Canelo Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs), the fight did serve a purpose for the Mexican superstar from Jalisco.

The fight was Alvarez's first bout to be held at more than 155 pounds and the result has made his team extremely confident ahead of his September 16th showdown against unbeaten knockout artist Gennady Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs).

"This fight was a good a measuring stick to see how we will do at 160 pounds," said Canelo's long time trainer Eddy Reynoso.

Alvarez's last few ring appearances have came either at the super welterweight limit or one pound north at 155 pounds. Reynoso admitted that it hasn't been easy for his fighter to get down to the mid 150 pound range for quite some time and is glad that Álvarez had a chance to prove himself at a higher weight.

"We  are ready. The truth is that we struggled with the weight the last few fights and now we demonstrated versus a bigger and taller fighter what we can do," Reynoso explained.

The Chávez fight was contested at a 164.5 pound catchweight which is higher than what Reynoso feels is his fighter's optimum weight.

However, Reynoso is very confident that the full 160 pound weight limit which the Alvarez-Golovkin WBC/WBA/IBF/IBO title will be contested at is the perfect weight for Canelo.

"Without a doubt at 160 pounds we are going to make a lot of noise," Reynoso told BoxingScene.com.

Alvarez-Golovkin will be distributed by HBO pay-per-view and an announcement regarding the venue for the event is expected in the next few weeks. The list of frontrunners to host the fight includes the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, AT&T Stadium in Texas, Madison Square Garden in New York and Dodger Stadium in California.
