WBC 154-pound champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (41-0-1, 30KOs) opened his up training camp in Los Angeles, California for his unification with undefeated WBA king Austin Trout (26-0, 14KOs), scheduled for Saturday April 20th at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. The fight will be televised by Showtime and Televisa.
"I started preparing the strategy we are planning to use to beat Trout," Canelo's trainer Chepo Reynoso said. "He is working on throwing shots to the body to counter [Trout's] speed.
Manager Edison Reynoso added: "He is sparring five rounds with a tall lefty with long arms. In the afternoon he runs with his team in Griffith Park."
