Undefeated World Boxing Council super bantamweight champion Luis 'Pantera' Nery has advised ESPN Deportes that he parted ways with veteran trainer Eddy Reynoso.
Nery, who is 31-0 with 24 knockouts, had only one fight with Reynoso in the corner, when he beat Mexico's Aaron Alameda last September to win the vacant 122-pound championship as part of Showtime's pay-per-view undercard to the Charlo brothers doubleheader.
At the moment, Nery has not finalized a deal with a new trainer.
Nery had changed trainers in 2019, when he joined the stable of award winning coach Freddie Roach. However, he could not make a fight with Roach in his corner, because the one they had scheduled for November of that year did not happen - when Emanuel Rodriguez refused to fight because Nery did not make the contracted weight.
There were already a lot of rumors about whether Reynoso was going to continue training Nery.
Reynoso has no shortage of responsibilities in the coming months with Canelo Alvarez, Oscar Valdez, Ryan García, Andy Ruiz and Frank Sanchez being among the boxers that he trains.
The well-known trainer will have a loaded month in February. This February 20 he will try to conquer the super featherweight title of the World Boxing Council when Valdez faces dangerous world champion Miguel Berchelt. A week later, on February 27, his top star, Canelo, will defend the WBC, WBA super middleweight titles against Avni Yildirim. If Canelo wins, he would likely face WBO champion Billy Joe Saunders in a unification on May 8.
Reynoso will also have Julio César 'Rey' Martínez, flyweight champion of the World Boxing Council, in the ring on February 27 against McWilliams Arroyo, while on March 13, other of his fighters, Hiroto Kyoguchi, will expose the junior flyweight title of the World Boxing Association against Axel Aragón, both on US soil.
