Reynoso: Canelo Avoided Big Mistake of Cotto, De La Hoya

By Miguel Rivera

Edison Reynoso, trainer and manager of Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-0-1, 30KOs), says his boxer has avoided making the same mistakes as Miguel Cotto and Oscar De La Hoya, who both had new trainers when they entered the ring against Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26KOs). De La Hoya was trained by Mayweather's father and switched over to Freddie Roach before meeting Floyd Jr. Cotto was only in his second fight with Cuban coach Pedro Diaz when he faced Mayweather. Canelo has worked with the same team for his entire career and Reynoso says there are no plans to make any changes to the team.

Canelo will face Mayweather on September 14th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

"Those kinds of decisions are the kind that lead fighters to failure. A new coach has no idea what to do because there is no knowledge [of the fighter himself and his history in camp]. In our case, we have worked with Saul over eight years and we know all of his needs...to integrate someone else would be a fiasco. So our team will remain as it always has," Reynoso said to Erika Montoya.

Canelo's mistake is taking this fight a bit too early .... Canelo should have first fixed his issues and gained some valuable experience against good quality fighters. His other mistake may be accepting the 152 CW.

[QUOTE=Bushbaby;13606761]What does that mean though?? He still trained to the limit and happened to be a lb shy. That's not the same as not being able to weight more than 152, period. Heroic try though.[/QUOTE] Sept 15th: Canelo won: Catchweight…

BTW, Canelo does not have a boxer's body. He's too thick. His dimensions invite fatigue.
