Eddy reynoso assured that Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez would only be interested in putting on a fight at 164 pounds against Errol Spence Jr.
“The only fight we would take in 164, not 160, would be against Errol spence, that he is moving up the category, but it is the fight that interests us ”, he commented Eddy reynoso. “Not even to fight with (Gennady) Golovkin We go down to 160, much less 164, whoever wants it is 168 or we go up to 175 ″.
Saul Alvarez is in negotiations to close a match with Caleb Plant to become the first fighter to unify all four super middleweight belts next September.
However, he would not be willing to go down the division unless it is done against Spence.
The tapatío would drop four pounds, while the current welterweight champion for the CMB Y AMB I would gain up to seven pounds to be able to face him Canelo.
Eddy He also spoke of the main challenge of Alvarez by 2022, where he said he would seek to climb to 175 pounds for future fights and praised the evolution that his pupil has had.
“They are complicated challenges,” he replied. Eddy, “It comes from the super welterweight and imagine fighting until 175 against taller, stronger fighters, it implies a degree of difficulty, but they have been the challenges that we have liked to take”.
Canelo has already won a world title in the super welterweight, light heavyweight and super middleweight, so for Eddy It has represented a meteoric advance in a career that many did not see reaching its peak.
“Before they said that he was not going to be a world champion because of his height and if you look from the super welterweight to 175 he has been one of the shortest fighters,” he said. “There we are, we are going to continue taking the challenges and above the ring it will be seen at 175 if he is short or not.”
For its part, Errol spence
will perform the defense of the welter belts against Manny pacquiao next August 21 in Las Vegas.
A fight with Saul could motivate you to climb, as long as you get a solid display in front of Pacquiao.
