Team Canelo: All Opponents Must Face Us at 154

By Salvador Rodriguez

Regarding some potential fights in the future, trainer Edison Reynoso makes it known that his boxer, WBC/WBA 154-pound champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-0-1, 30KOs), will not move up or move down for any potential opponent - at least right now. He was responding to the idea of moving down to face pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr. or moving up to face champions Sergio Martinez or Gennady Golovkin at the middleweight limit.

"We're fighting at 154 and that's the weight that we'll face [any potential opponent], even the devil. We have a 22 year old fighter, a unified world champion and we are in no hurry with him. If someone wants to fight, they have to move up to 154 or come down to 154," Reynoso said.

Canelo is looking to return on September 14th, and hopes the opponent is Mayweather.

[QUOTE=HeroBando;13401892]As long as he can make weight, no issues with Broner staying down at 135. Obviously he can't make 130. The problem is, he can't get name opponents or get p4p points there. Or rather, in sane p4p rankings he's…

[QUOTE=HeroBando;13401884]Everybody knew Jones was a paper champ at HW. He was never the top ranked guy in the division, nor did he sit on that belt. It was a vanity belt for him. It'd be like Floyd snatching a belt…
