Team Canelo: Mayweather Reneged On Agreement To Fight
By Alfredo Jaime Gomez, notifight.com
Jose "Chepo" Reynoso, manager/trainer of WBC junior middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (41-0-1, 30KOs), says Floyd Mayweather Jr. (43-0, 26KOs) reneged on their agreement to compete in separate fights on May 4th and then meet each other on September 14th.
It was announced on Wednesday that Canelo would withdraw from Mayweather's card in May, and instead return on April 20th against WBA champion Austin Trout in San Antonio, Texas. Mayweather will go forward on the date May date in Las Vegas, facing challenger Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero.
According to Reynoso, Mayweather gave them his word that deal would be made prior to their respective May fights. Canelo would face Trout on Mayweather's card, and in return Mayweather would sign a contract to bind himself to a Canelo fight in the fall.
"The terms were not met by Mayweather. We had an agreement, although it was verbal. We had an agreement that Saul would appear on [Mayweather's] May card as the chief support. For us to do that, [Mayweather] said he was willing to sign [a contract for] a September fight with [Canelo]. They were supposed to fight different opponents [in May]. If they both came out as the winner, the idea was to have both of them fight each other on a date in September," Reynoso said.
