Canelo: Abel Sanchez Brings Up Every Excuse Possible!

Mexican superstar Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs) is refusing to trade any further words with Abel Sanchez, who is the head trainer of WBA, IBO, WBC middleweight champion Gennady Golokin (38-0-1, 34 KOs).

Sanchez has continued to question the courage or Canelo - and says the Mexican boxer lacked courage in the first bout, which took place in September 2017.

The veteran coach blames Canelo for the lack of fireworks in fight one. The boxers fought to a controversial twelve round split draw.

In several recent interviews, Sanchez dared Canelo to fight like a "true Mexican" in the second bout.

According to Canelo, he used his boxing skills to frustrate and outbox Golovkin in the fight. Golovkin was pressing for most of the contest and looking to do damage, but he was having trouble landing his usual arsenal.

Canelo says Sanchez is looking for every possible excuse for his boxer's performance.

He promises to set the record straight when he faces Golovkin in the rematch - scheduled for September 15th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

"I did my fight. I did what I set out to do. I did what I trained to do but I did a great fight," Canelo said

"But on September 15, I'm going to do the necessary adjustments and the necessary things to win. This man just likes to talk. He likes to talk a lot and bring up every excuse possible, but you'll see, on September 15, what Canelo Alvarez is all about and what he's capable of doing."

Eddy Reynoso, the manager and co-trainer of Canelo, is very confident that his fighter will outbox Golovkin in the second fight.

"He's a fighter with more arguments. He has more talent and is more versatile. He knows how to walk in the ring and make you miss, counterpunch, attack. I mean, he has the total package," Reynoso said.

Canelo and his team made up the lamest of all lame excuses, Mexico beef. Mexico cannot be trusted with its athletes because of that excuse. Everyone knew about the beef, yet the richest athlete in Mexico could not eat clean…
