Photos: Canelo Starts Sparring in Big Bear, Working Hard

By Miguel Rivera

A week after his arrival to the mountains of Big Bear, California, Mexican champion Saul Alvarez began his sparring sessions. The ruler of the junior middleweight division, under the World Boxing Council, is preparing to address the most important battle of his successful career. He faces former three division champion Shane Mosley on May 5 in Las Vegas. Canelo sparred for four rounds, with each round spanning five minutes, and he showed a lot of strength. Canelo is training in the cold enviorment under Chepo and Edison Reynoso.

Under Armour and Grant won't be happy, Canelo is using an Adidas pant and Winning gear.

[QUOTE=winky's right;11913701]Doesn't Mosley also train at Big Bear? Or was that only for the Mayweather fight, since Naz's HQ is at Philly. It would be rather awkward to be doing road work while your opponent runs up and overtakes you…

I see no reason to dislike Alvarez. He's been fighting 5 times a year and he gets better each time. Mosley is an old favorite of mine, but Alvarez is looking like the future. He seems like a really tough…
