Canelo's Coach Reacts To Facing Spence, Likes Charlo For 2021

Eddy Reynoso, head trainer of Mexican superstar Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, has not ruled out the possibility of his boxer returning to the ring before the end of the year.

Canelo was scheduled to fight back in May, but the event was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Then his fall return was pushed back, as the boxer filed a lawsuit against his promoter Golden Boy Promotions, and the DAZN streaming app, which has an exclusive deal with the Canelo.

At the moment, there is no fight on the horizon, but Reynoso says his boxer could be ready in four weeks for a scheduled fight.

Canelo is still staying busy in the gym and keeping his body in shape.

"We are really working as if we were going to fight, we have always had that criterion, you have to be in the gym for whatever comes, so we have confidence that we can do something before the end of the year, and if not, well, to fight in the early months of the following year, that's why we are active and we are working in the gym daily,” Reynoso said to ESPN Deportes.

Canelo has no shortage of potential opponents - including fighters like Errol Spence, Caleb Plant, Callum Smith and Jermall Charlo issuing challenges in recent months.

He believes Spence, a unified champion at 147, would be too tough to make at the moment due to weight. On the other hand, he's impressed with the recent performances by Charlo and likes the idea of that fight in the upcoming year. 

“With what Spence says [about facing Canelo at middleweight], it would be a good fight, it's difficult [to make] because of the weight [difference]. To begin with we have to see how [Spence] returns [after the accident].. I don't think we can make 160-pounds right now after a year without fighting... these are factors that can be complicated," Reynoso said.

"Plant has been showing that he is a very good fighter at 168. Smith is at 168, it was shown the last time he fought... that in my opinion he did not win the fight [with John Ryder]. I don't think he can handle [making] 168-pounds any longer. Charlo has been rising, he has been advancing, it would be a big and important fight, but that fight has to take place next year."

[QUOTE=CmdrSoCal;20837685]Charlo is the 5th best MW behind Golovkin, Andrade, Canelo, Murata. Eubank jr/Charlo is 50/50. Canelo/Charlo is not an important fight.[/QUOTE] Anyone putting Eubank and Murata over Charlo doesn't deserve being a member on a boxing forum. The dude is…

[QUOTE=Doubledagger;20842218]I didn't call Camelot racist, I called the fanboys and the media racist. Get some reading comprehension please.[/QUOTE] What had the media done or said to be racist? What exactly are you calling them racist for?

[QUOTE=Silver Spear;20841857]Those fights sold because people cared about it the casuals and the fans. Nobody really knows or cares about Andrade. How will you promote the fight? Canelo v Ggg was easy to sell because it was easy to promote…

[QUOTE=Al Broker;20841384]I don't understand why you guys are bringing up racism. I don't understand why Canelo haters selectively cherry pick names. We could do that for every fighter and say ''why did he choose.'' Victor Ortiz was broken down by…

[QUOTE=Doubledagger;20841425]For your information this isnt even about Canelo per se. I'm adressing the overall ducking. If you read my earlier post I not only called out the racist fanboys but also all the fighters for ducking, including Andrade who ducked…
