Former unified world heavyweight champion Andy Ruiz is still looking for a coach after abruptly ending his relationship with coach Manny Robles, and some sources have revealed that one option could be Eddy Reynoso, who in 2019 was recognized as trainer of the year.
Reynoso said a few days ago that he would not rule out that possibility.
"Yes, of course, we are for that, to work [with Ruiz], as long as there is discipline, that there is order [in his training]," said the renowned coach to ESPN Deportes.
Reynoso's stable is growing, as he's the head coach of Canelo Alvarez, Oscar Valdez, Ryan García, Luis Nery and Frank Sanchez, and others.
"We are ready to work with any fighter, and we will see what happens, it would be an honor to also work with the first heavyweight champion that Mexico produced," added Reynoso, who is currently in Guadalajara, accompanying his family, after breaking the camp that he kept with several fighters in San Diego, specifically with Canelo, Nery and Valdez.
Ruiz has been looking for a coach and a few weeks ago it was reported that Teddy Atlas could be an option; however, it seems that there was no agreement, and according to sources with knowledge of the matter, there have already been rapprochements between the two camps.
Ruiz was widely criticized after losing in the rematch with Anthony Joshua last December at the Diriyah Arena in Saudi Arabia.
And in an exercise of sincerity in the aftermath of the loss, Ruiz recognized that he lacked discipline and hunger to try to repeat the tremendous stoppage win that he secured over Joshua in June 2019.
Once professional boxing resumes, it remains to be seen if Ruiz's interest with Reynoso will establish a working relationship, or will it just be another failed approach.
