Canelo's Coach To Sanchez: Canelo Did NOT Run, It's Movement!

Chepo Reynoso, the co-trainer of Mexican superstar Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs), rejected the recent constant claims from veteran trainer Abel Sanchez, who handles IBO, WBC, WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (38-0-1, 34 KOs).

The two boxers are set to collide on September 15th, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Their first bout, which took place a year earlier in the same venue, saw the contest end in a controversial twelve round split draw.

Sanchez and Golovkin were very angered with the manner in which Canelo conducted himself in the bout.

They have long claimed that Canelo "ran" in the fight and refused to engage in a "Mexican style" kind of manner.

Sanchez especially has been beating the drum that Canelo was a "chicken" and felt the boxer had refused to stand still in the bout because he feared the possibility of getting knocked out by a hard shot.

Chepo disagrees with that position.

He says Canelo never ran in the contest and simply used movement to outbox Golovkin and nullify the heavy hands of the unified champion.

"Canelo has always been respectful with all opponents and all teams. This time has not been an exception. It's been Abel who has heated things up with his statements regarding Canelo and that he runs, but a fighter can't run in the ring, you run on the racetrack," Chepo explained.

"In a fight you can't run. Maybe he moved a little bit, showed some movement just to show his quality as a fighter, but I think that he moved really well, he moved when necessary, and he may have put a little water in the gunpowder of Golovkin, and that's why he wants to heat things up, because he showed his quality as a fighter. So, we're relaxed, we know what we have to do, and we haven't been doing any insults."

General Patton and the American 1st Division won WWII while moving backwards! Just saying! I was a USMC grunt for 10 years and when they told us to attack it was always backwards. Just saying!

Nelo had a lot of movement to avoid being koed and he did good. He also landed a variety of different punches as GGG closed in on him. But Nelo landed less whilst looking pretty like a dancer. So GGG…

running is a dumb term even for casual fans but it is especially dumb when it comes from a fighter or a trainer
