Canelo Alvarez’s trainer Eddy Reynoso believes fans are in for a treat when his man challenges Liam Smith for the WBO World Super-Welterweight Title on September 17th.
With both men deep in their respective training camps, Reynoso took some time out from a busy schedule to talk with ESPN: "We are going very well and have completed a week of work.”
The fight marks a 50th pro fight landmark for the flame haired Mexican with trainer Reynoso insisting Team Canelo will leave no stone unturned in their preparation.
“The truth is that we must be careful about many things. Smith has very good left, good combinations and goes forward. He is an undefeated fighter, hungry, with a good knockout streak, certainly we must be careful.”
Fans will flock to the impressive AT&T Stadium in Dallas on Mexican Independence weekend to see their hero Canelo in person for this intriguing matchup.
“We believe it will be a good fight, people like to see two fighters going forward and not shy away from combat.”
Speculation continues with a proposed super-fight with Gennady Golovkin loosely agreed for “fall 2017” and a potential showdown against WBO World Middleweight Champion Billy Joe Saunders, but for now Reynoso is fully focused on Liam Smith.
"Until September, we will not know what will happen beyond that. If he wins we will see the options. Canelo may go to 160 pounds once and for all, but first he has to win the title Smith has.”
