Canelo's Trainer Explains Mayweather Catch-Weight Deal

By Salvador Rodriguez

Chepo Reynoso, the manager and trainer for WBC/WBA junior middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (42-0-1, 30KOs), gives a lot of credit to Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer for working day and night to finalize a deal that matches Canelo against Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26KOs) on September 14th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

In a recent article on BoxingScene.com, Canelo stated that both sides budged a little on the weight.

The two sides agreed on a catch-weight of 152-pounds, but Reynoso says it wasn't easy.

Initially, Chepo claims Mayweather wanted a catch-weight of 150-pounds, and Canelo wanted the full junior middleweight limit of 154. Mayweather and Canelo finally agreed to meet in the middle, with both giving up two pounds in weight.

"we are happy with the negotiations, after all, this is what we were looking for. We are ready to face him and remove him from the throne," said Reynoso.

"We had to give up some weight, but we are confident that everything will be fine. Those two pounds that we're sacrificing was a condition to get the Mayweather fight. He wanted 150 pounds and we requested 152, and I think in the end we did well."

"If we did not give up those two pounds, he wouldn't fight. Besides, Mayweather wanted to fight at 147, then 150. Fortunately, Richard Schaefer is a great negotiator. Everyone did their part to get this achieved."
