Canelo Annoyed: Abel Sanchez is Saying Stupid, Idiotic Things

Mexican superstar Saul "Canelo" Alvarez is getting annoyed with the statements being made by Abel Sanchez, who is the head trainer of IBF, WBA, IBO, WBC middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin.

The two boxers are scheduled to collide for a second time on May 5th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

They first fought last September, also at T-Mobile, with a controversial twelve round split draw being handed down. The scores ere 115-113 for Canelo, 114-114 for the draw and a highly criticized 118-110 for Canelo.

Sanchez has been taunting Canelo's hit-and-run strategy from the first meeting.

As previously reported on, Sanchez even went as far as to state that he called basketball legend Michael Jordan to request a better paid of shoes in order to catch Canelo in the ring - in the event that he starts running. Golovkin is sponsored by the Jordan brand.

"I definitely think he ran a lot more than we thought he was going to," Sanchez said.

"I talked to (Michael) Jordan about it and asked if he could make us some shoes so that we can go a bit faster and are able to catch him. I hope for the fans that he puts on the fight that he said he was going to do the first time."

Sanchez also compared the style of Canelo to Floyd Mayweather Jr. 

He says Golovkin made Canelo abandon his 'Mexican style' and transform into a backfoot boxer like Mayweather.

Canelo is shaking his head at Sanchez's comments.

"I went in there, I outboxed him, I went on the ropes, I made him miss, I controlled the center of the ring," Canelo said.

"I'm a technical fighter. I'm not a jackass who just comes forward, throwing punches and gets hit.

"I hope he (Sanchez) goes home tonight and really thinks about what he says. Because he's saying stupid, idiotic things."
