Team Canelo Ignoring Trash Talk From 'Donkey' Abel Sanchez

By Miguel Rivera

The handlers of Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez are turning their heads at the criticism and provocations from Abel Sanchez, the head trainer of IBO, WBA, WBC middleweight world champion Gennady Golovkin.

For months and frequently, Sanchez has been roasting Canelo in the press - for the tactics that the Mexican superstar used in the first bout against Golovkin in September 2017 - which ended in a controversial twelve round split draw.

The rematch takes place on September 2018, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Jose 'Chepo' Reynoso, who trains and guides the career of Canelo, is shaking his head at some of the statements coming from Sanchez.

"That man talks, talks and talks but that's what he likes to do and we have to let him talk. In my town, they say that donkeys speak so that everyone knows they exist, because if they didn't speak then nobody would know, so here we are. Abel talks so everyone knows he's there," Chepo told ESPN Deportes.

"The people that are provoking you, it's like with donkeys, you turn a deaf ear to them. There is a working plan in place and a strategy and we have to move forward. Abel speaks but he is not going to fight , the one who is going to fight is going to be Golovkin. There are not that many words spoken in the ring, you just have to be in the tower and whoever has the better condition, better strategy and better mentality and concentration, will win the bout."

On the other end, manager and co-trainer Eddy Reynoso, is also staying away from taking the bait from Sanchez.

"Boxing is a serious sport and we have grown from the bottom with a show of respect. They have been an aggressive team, they start to say things that are not appropriate for this sport, and we keep working as usual, doing things well, with calm, and move forward and let them say what they want. Guys like Abel Sanchez, they do their thing and we do our thing," Eddy said.
