Eddie Reinoso, coach and manager of the leader of the pound-for-pound rating, Mexican Saul Alvarez (53-1-2, 36 KO), does not think that his ward, despite the unambiguous pre-match layouts, looks behind the Turkish challenger Avni Yildirim (21-2-0, 12 KO).
“This is a must-have title defense, so we have to focus on that and then turn our attention to Billy Joe Saunders. Now Canelo is at the level where he is constantly obliged to prove superiority, and I would not say that it is easy.
Each fight is different and that’s why we go through a lot of work every time. Such fights pose the greatest threat, because you do not win anything, but you risk losing everything. Think of the same fight between Frankie Randall and Julio Cesar Chavez, ”said Reinoso.
