Canelo's Coach: Sanchez Can Keep Talking, He's Not Fighting

By Miguel Rivera

Eddy Reynoso, the trainer of Mexican superstar Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, is paying no attention to the ongoing comments from Abel Sanchez, who trains WBC, WBA, IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin.

Canelo and Golovkin are scheduled to collide for a second time on September 15th from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

"We are focused on our own things. They keep talking, it's them [the fighters] who are going to retaliate [in the ring]. It's not good for a coach to be screaming, because he's not going to get in the ring," Reynoso told Today Sports. "In the end, those who are going to get into the ring are Saul and Golovkin."

The boxers fought to a controversial twelve round split draw in September 2017, also at the T-Mobile Arena.

They were scheduled to fight in May, but the fight was pushed back after Canelo tested positive for the banned substance clenbuterol.

The failed test would lead to Canelo getting hit with a six month suspension from the Nevada State Athletic Commission - which expires this month.

Because of the failed tests, Golovkin and Sanchez have accused Canelo of being a dirty fighter.

More so than that, Sanchez has really been riding Canelo for his fighting style in the first contest. He claims Canelo was running for the entire bout and refused to fight in a 'Mexican style.'

While Reynoso has responded on several occasions, he usually stays away from trading words with Sanchez.

"We are a humble team, we like to work, we have to keep working, let them keep talking. Boxing is a serious sport, you have to respect it," Reynoso said.

Reynoso also revealed that Canelo is working at full force after undergoing surgery to correct a knee injury earlier this year.

"Two days after he underwent surgery, he was already doing rehabilitation. We did like a week or two of rehabilitation, now he's doing everything normal, " said Reynoso.

Yes, Canelo, we know that Sanchez isn't fighting; however, the question is whether this time Canelo himself will be fighting. So, Saul, will you?
