Canelo's Manager: Big Fight in May is The Target

By Salvador Rodriguez

Manager Edison Reynoso is disappointed with Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (44-1-1, 31KOs) being forced to withdraw from his December return, but notes that his boxer's course remains the same for 2015.

Canelo was scheduled to return on December 6th against former welterweight champion Joshu Clottey. The boxer announced on Monday that he suffered an ankle injury, which forced him to withdraw from the contest.

The boxer, and his team, are now focused on landing a big fight on Cinco De Mayo weekend (May 2) and WBC middleweight champion Miguel Cotto (39-4, 32KOs) is likely their top target.

"Unfortunately this injury happened and we didn't want Saul to take the risk [of fighting with this injury]. This does not change our plans, which is going for that big fight in May 2015. Obviously everyone knows about Cotto, but we are a big name," said Reynoso.

"We simply want a big fight. This is what the team and Canelo is looking for. We want to find something good for this May, 2015."

Regarding negotiations for a fight with Cotto, Reynoso does not seem concerned about the location or weight.

"We leave these things to the rest of the team. I don't know if the negotiations will be easy, but there is little concern for is if it is in New York, in Texas or in Las Vegas, and [there is little concern about] the weight. We want this big fight for May," Reynoso said.
