Team Canelo Stand Firm: Eye Martinez, Cotto, Floyd
By Miguel Rivera
WBC junior middleweight champion Saúl “Canelo“ Álvarez will begin training next Monday in his native Guadalajara, as he begins to gradually reach the best physical peak possible for a planned return on May 4th. On Wednesday, WBC President Jose Sulaiman ordered Canelo to fight the winner of the upcoming final eliminator, taking place on Saturday night in Las Vegas, between Vanes Martirosyan and Erislandy Lara.
Manager Chepo Reynoso, and trainer Edison Reynoso, are standing firm on their marching orders to Golden Boy Promotions. Canelo (41-0-1, 30 KO's) wants the biggest fight possible and he presented three names, Floyd Mayweather Jr., Miguel Cotto and Sergio Martinez. Canelo and his team do not care which fighter is secured for May, but they want one of them.
“There will be major challenges next year. The time has come where Saul must face the best pound for pound fighters in the world," said Chepo Reynoso.
Edison recalls how a while back they previously turned down an offer to fight Mayweather, but now they feel ready to go.
“They offered us a fight with Floyd Mayweather, and they were giving us a good sum of money, but we decided that it wasn't the right moment and I believe that we weren't wrong," Edison said.

Cotto has always been afraid of Canelo. He preferred an average, boring fighter like Trout. Floyd is scared too. Martínez is the toughest oponent and the best pound for pound right now, even though he was hurt and knocked down…Comment by jr2122 on 11-09-2012
[QUOTE=jsfd26;12680761]Canelo deserves a shot at Floyd/Cotto/Martinez but Lara/Kirkland/Molina don't deserve a shot at Canelo? How does that work? :thinking: What has Canelo done that those 3 haven't? Maybe they should fight JWWs and beat up little Solis. :dunno: [SIZE="1"][I]Posted from…Comment by jazluvr on 11-09-2012
