On December 19 at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, Mexican Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez will face the British Callum Smith, in a super middleweight extravaganza.
Guiding these two master blasters are two maestros. There`s Mexican Eddy Reynoso who`s worked with Saul Alvarez for more than a decade. Eddy, along with his father José Chepo Reynoso, has dedicated his life to preparing boxers, working with champions of the quality, namely, Óscar “Chololo” Larios, Javier “Chatito” Jáuregui, Oswaldo “Gallito” Novoa, Víctor “Vikingo” Terrazas, Rigoberto “Spanish” Álvarez, among others.
He was recognized in 2019 by the American Boxing Writers Association as the best trainer. Currently, in addition to training with “Canelo”, he works with Andy Ruiz, Luis “Pantera” Nery, Oscar Valdez, Ryan García and other important prospects.
“We are a disciplined team that are always ready for great challenges. On December 19 Canelo will face the best of 168 pounds. What we want in our career is to keep moving forward and fight with the best. We’re going to have a great fight,” Reynoso said.
