Saul Alvarez's Trainer: Alfonso Gomez Another Option

By Jose Luis Camarillo, notifight.com

Edison Reynoso, the trainer of WBC junior middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, added Alfonso Gomez (23-4-2, 12KOs) to the list of possible options for his boxer on September 17. A few days ago, Alvarez's manager Jose "Chep" Reynoso mentioned former champion Ricardo Mayorga as a possible candidate, but Gomez would certainly come at a much cheaper price. Team Alvarez are looking to secure opponents to further groom their fighter's abilities. Alvarez returned last Saturday in Guadalajara to stop manadatory challenger Ryan Rhodes in the twelfth round.

"Soon we will sit down with Golden Boy Promotions, and we'll discuss the next viable opponent for Canelo," Reynoso said.

""Also, you can't say that Cotto wasn't known to be a big puncher with a 79 KO percentage at lightweight."" First off, KO% does NOT indicate punching power. Cotto got the KO's from volume punching. Yet he badly hurt a…
