By Jose Luis Camarillo,

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.

""De La Hoya was down against a guy.""" FYI being down does not mean being hurt. MANY fighters suffer flash knockdowns and are not hurt. Example: When Hamed first Knocked down Kevin Kelly, Kelly was not hurt. When Hamed badly wobbled Boom Boom Johnson, Johnson was HURT! On top of that, Alvarez ...

""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 guy naturally 2-3 divisions above him with ONE punch.

De La Hoya was down against a guy that had only won 1 of his last 6 fights, and that was when he was 20. and this was against a 130lber. doesnt change the fact that DLH had an excellent chin for almost all his career. plenty of good fighters go down or get hurt by lesser competition when ...
