Edison Reynoso, trainer of WBC junior middleweight champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (39-0-1, 29KOs), is not upset that his boxer can't face Floyd Mayweather Jr. or Miguel Cotto in the month of May. Canelo was targeting both boxers, but on Wednesday Mayweather announced that he reached an agreement to fight Cotto on May 5th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
"We are not in a hurry. Canelo is a younger fighter and we know that sooner or later we will reach those opponents," Reynoso said.
According to Reynoso, Alvarez is possibly going to take a co-feature position on the Mayweather-Cotto undercard - although Reynoso says there have been conversations about Alvarez returning to the ring on May 12 in San Antonio, Texas.
There are two opponents on Reynoso's mind, former three division champion Shane Mosley and Canelo's mandatory challenger James Kirkland, who faces Carlos Molina in March.
"On Monday we met with Golden Boy and we look forward to fighting on that weekend. For now, Mosley and Kirkland are the two options we have. Victor Ortiz is not in our plans," said Reynoso.
