Luis Nery is Now Working With Eddy Reynoso as Trainer

By Ryan Burton has been advised that former bantamweight champion Luis "Pantera" Nery (30-0) is now being trained by Eddy Reynoso of Jalisco, Mexico. Reynoso of course is best known for his work as the long time trainer of superstar Saul "Canelo" Alvarez. Salvador Rodriguez of ESPN Deportes first reported the news.

After years of only training Canelo, Reynoso has recently added to his stable.  He also trains unbeaten former featherweight champion Oscar Valdez who will move up to 130 pounds for his next fight and lightweight prospect Ryan Garcia who returns to the ring on September 14th in Southern California.

Nery captured the WBC bantamweight title in 2017 when he stopped Shinsuke Yamanaka in 4 rounds in Japan.  He later failed a drug test but wasn't stripped of his belt because the WBC believed that the find was a result of food contamination.  They ordered an immediate rematch and Nery lost his title on the scales as he couldn't get down to the 118 pound bantamweight limit. The fight would go on and Nery stopped Yamanaka in 2 rounds.

The 24-year-old Tijuana, Mexico native has won 4 fights in a row since losing his title.  The last two fights were in the United States after his main promoter Zanfer Promotions came to a co-promotional agreement with Premier Boxing Champions.

He steamrolled McJoe Arroyo in March but struggled in the early rounds of his 9th round stoppage victory over Juan Carlos Payano on the Manny Pacquiao-Keith Thurman under card last month. 

Nery doesn't have a return date set but is expected to return to the ring before the end of the year.  Reynoso is currently training Garcia for his September 14th showdown against Avery Sparrow.

Another PED user in the Reynoso camp, makes sense...

If Reynoso could clean up some of Nery's defensive flaws, this could be a scary good combination.

This pairing will be interesting. Nery is already good, the Reynosos boxing IQ might make him even better.
