The super welterweight world champion of the World Boxing Council, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (41-0-1, 30KOs), began his preparation towards his sixth title defense on May 4 against an opponent to be announced.

The Mexican superstar running very early in the Los Colomos forest in Guadalajara, Mexico under the watchful eye of his manager Chepo Reynoso and his trainer Edison Reynoso. Canelo and his team were sorrouded by a group of fighters that work under the CANELO PROMOTIONS banner.

"Canelo" ran with hat and gloves to protect himself from the cold winter morning in Guadalajara.

"It feels good to return to training camp," said the new Mexican boxing idol.

During 2012, Saul Alvarez successfully defended the 154-pound title by defeating the legendary Shane Mosley and  Josesito Lopez.

In the afternoon, the champion went to the gym that bears his name to complete his first day of practice. He jumped rope, shadow boxed​​, and ended up his training routine by working his abs.

"It was a full day for the champion. We won’t stop working until their May fight, this is the start of a new chapter," said Edison Reynoso.

Saul Alvarez worked with enthusiasm, took time to joke and wish much success to the young prospects George "Pylon" Lara, Horacio "Violento" Garcia, Oscar "Raton" Cortes - who were working as hard as the champion.

He should shadow box in low light & claim it's a really dark guy. His fans will love it, the media will buy it & boom, Floyd fight in september.
