Canelo Alvarez’s coach talks about his third fight with Golovkin


Eddie Reynoso, coach of Mexican Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (57-2-2, 39 KOs), does not expect that the upcoming third fight against Kazakh Gennady Golovkin (42-1-1, 37 KOs), scheduled for September 17 in Las Vegas (USA), it will be easier for his ward than the previous two.

For this reason, they are going to show even better boxing compared to what they had in 2017-2018.

“This is a tough fight for both of them because they already know each other. They are high-class fighters, each of them has a good shot, and it will be a very difficult fight, Reynoso is sure. “We had 24 good rounds against Golovkin and we have to make them even better in the trilogy. Saul at 76.2 kg looks very strong, he is a champion in four versions, and we have to confirm his status, as well as show what he learned after the first two fights.

The coach is sure that the defeat in the previous fight from Dmitry Bivol will only benefit his ward:

“Losing always helps, especially when you are a competitive boxer, a fighter with honor. Defeat always helps you improve in many ways. We have to win this fight and next year we will look for (another) meeting with Bivol.”

By the way, just now Alvarez told how the defeat of Bivolu affected him.
