Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez is back in training and getting ready for his September 16th showdown against Gennady Golovkin.
The Mexican fighter will take on the IBF, WBC, WBA and IBO champion in a match that many call the most anticipated fight in boxing since Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. This will be Canelo’s first ever fight at the full middleweight limit on 160 pounds.
“We are already training, running, and we’ll go to Los Angeles in the month of July. We will be there for all of July, August and from there that will take us to September,” said Eddie Reynoso, Canelo’s coach and manager, to ESPN Deportes.
According Reynoso, Canelo has started his camp in Guadalajara, Mexico and will train there until the end of June. From there the camp will move on to Los Angeles.
Abel Sanchez, Golovkin’s trainer, has told boxingscene.com that the Kazakh fighter will start his eight week training camp in July.
In his last fight Canelo demolished fellow Mexican fighter Julio Cesar Chavez in convincing fashion and won by unanimous decision. Golovkin last fought Danny Jacobs and also beat him via points.
