Saul "Canelo"Alvarez, the new super welterweight world champion (WBC), began working on strength and endurance for his scheduled battle with the British southpaw Ryan Rhodes, scheduled for June 18 at Arena VFG in Tlajomulco, Jalisco. Alvarez is already running between 6 and 7 kilometers in the mountains of Big Bear California, plus jogging beside a beautiful lake, everything under perfect weather for his preparation.
The "Canelo " is boxing seven rounds a day with the lefty Jose Reynoso, a slick super lightweight. Edison Reynoso, his coach and strategist with his father Chepo Reynoso, reported that last Wednesday, the champion weighed in at 75 kg. So, in his third week in the mountains of California, Saul Alvarez continues to go through camp smoothly.
