Saul Alvarez Off To Big Bear, Golovkin and Ota Sparring

By José Luis Camarillo, notifight.com

WBC junior middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez is heading to the high altitude area of Big Bear, California for the remainder of his training camp. Canelo is preparing for his upcoming title defense, on Sept. 17 at Staples Center in Los Angeles, against Alfonso Gomez. For the first day or so, Canelo will be running, shadow boxing and hitting the back, but within two days he will be sparring with junior middleweight Charlie Ota, as well as the current WBA "regular" middleweight world champion Gennady Golovkin. Canelo is expected to stay in Big Bear until the week of the Alvarez fight.

Golovkin is a big dude that can only be a good thing helpin Canelo prepare. Gomez isnt as small as everyone thinks but he still isnt that big a puncher and I think Canelo is going to get a late…

Good sparring session for both Canelo and Golovkin.

Wow, he must be getting some good sparring sessions in with Golovkin, that can only help him. Hopefully we see more improvement from Saul since Gomez says he's coming to fight.
