Coach Eddie Reynoso doesn’t like the idea of his ward, the undisputed super middleweight champion Saul Canelo Alvarez (57-1-2, 39 KOs) of Mexico – he wants to go up to the cruiserweight limit (even a little higher) and fight Ukrainian heavyweight Oleksandr Usyk (19-0, 39 KOs). 13 KOs).
The manager of the Ukrainian Egis Klimas has already stated that the Ukrainian will make a cruiserweight limit for the fight with the Mexican. And here
Reynoso is clearly against this fight: “Look, we need to stay realistic when it comes to conquering new weight divisions. We don’t really know yet how high we can go to stay competitive. So, the fight with Usyk may be too difficult. Maybe we can do something with[WBC Cruiserweight Champion]Ilunga Makabu.”
Already this Saturday, Canelo will rise to light heavyweight and try to take away the WBA Super belt from Russian Dmitry Bivol (forecast and preview battle). Reasons Reynoso: “Let’s wait for the fight with Bivol first, and then the fight in September (presumably with Gennady Golovkin). Then it will be easier to talk about something. Don’t forget that in case of victory over Bivol, we will have an open path to the fight for the title of the absolute champion of the light heavyweight division. So far, we plan to compete in the super middle and light heavyweight categories. Yes, Canelo will combine performances in these weights.
Usyk is also busy for the time being – in the summer he is obliged to give revenge to Briton Anthony Joshua. WBA Super, IBF and WBO heavyweight titles are at stake. Previously, the Ukrainian was also the absolute champion of cruiserweight. Usyk and Canelo are leaders P4P rating according to WMMAA.
Reynoso also stated that “they were not offered Spence, but this is a cool option.”
