Saul Canelo Alvarez’s loss to Dmitry Bivol surprised many who longed to see the Mexican triumph at 175 pounds, but if there was someone who really suffered from this result, it was trainer Eddy Reynoso.
In a video you can see how Reynoso speaks loudly to the tapatío before the last round against the Russian began.
“How are you feeling, Saul?“, Reynoso asks Canelo.
“It’s the last round, motherfu… catch your breath,” added Eddy.
“Son, it’s the last round. Do your best here, do things right, two punches and move your waist, he’s heavier than you and you can’t knock him out. Get some air. Three more fuc… minutes, do it right, motherfu… Get your head on straight, dude” the trainer told the 168-pound champion strongly.

In the end, the judges’ scorecards went in favor of Bivol (115-113), who kept his WBA light heavyweight belt.
Concern within the Canelo Team?
The defeat of the tapatío would have generated great concern in the Canelo Team camp, due to the poor results obtained so far in 2022.Eddy Reynoso is in charge of the team of great fighters, but so far this year the work has not yielded the expected results.
In addition to Saul Alvarez’s loss to Dmitry Bivol, on April 30 boxer Oscar Valdez lost his undefeated and super featherweight belt to Shakur Stevenson. However, with Joselito Velázquez, Eddy Reynoso was able to taste the sweetness of victory.
