Team Canelo Confident: Saul Will Beat Sergio Martinez

By Rene Umanzor

José 'Chepo' Reynoso, the trainer of WBC 154-pound champion Saúl "Canelo" Álvarez (41-0-1, 30KOs), is confident his boxer can defeat Sergio Martinez (50-2-2, 28KOs), the WBC champion at 160-pounds.

On September 15th in Las Vegas, Martinez defeated Canelo's countryman Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (46-1-1, 32KOs), while a few miles away Canelo beat down Josesito Lopez over five rounds.

Following their respective fights, Martinez mentioned Canelo as a potential opponent in early 2013. Martinez, a former junior middleweight champion, is willing to return to 154-pounds to make the fight.

"I believe and I am confident that Canelo would beat Martinez, and since the team of 'Maravilla' believe he can win - it will be history that proves which of us is right. We are interested in the fight because we know that Saul can beat him," said Chepo.

"[Canelo and Chavez] have two different styles. It would be a different fight because Canelo is not [the same kind of fighter as] Junior. We want the best fighters so Saul can write his own legacy by facing the best champions and Martinez is one of them. If the people want to see that fight, then it must be pursued because it would be spectacular and do good business."

[QUOTE=ddangerous;12586353]Won't surprise me at all either if Chino takes his '0'. Nobody is gonna strip Canelo, man, c'mon. He is a huge name, boxing icon in Mexico now, and money maker. He ain't getting stripped. You are hilarious. I remember…
