Canelo Alvarez trainer Eddy Reynoso has quashed any reports that his fighter is signing a two-fight deal with Matchroom.
Earlier this week ESPN broke the news that the undisputed super-middleweight champion was finalising a move to Eddie Hearn’s stable. Dmitry Bivol and May and Gennadiy Golovkin in September were the speculated opponents.
Reynoso published a note on Twitter yesterday denying any agreement had been reached.
“I am grateful to communicate that there is offers for Canelo’s next fight from PBC and Matchroom. The negotiation process is still a work in progress. A final decision has not been reached. As of now, all information published yesterday (Wednesday) has no truth or foundation behind it. Once we have a signed agreement our team will be the first to notify the public.”
The offer from PBC is believed to include a fight against WBC middleweight champion Jermall Charlo who would step up to 168lbs to face Canelo for the undisputed super-middleweight title.
Canelo is currently enjoying a sabbatical from the sport having tore through the 12 stone division to take all four belts between December 2020 and November 2021.
