The World Boxing Association (WBA) has recognized Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez as the best boxer and Eddy Reynoso as the best trainer of the year 2021, this same recognition was awarded by the World Boxing Council (WBC) to both, so we recommend you to visit here the merits of Canelo Alvarez and Eddy Reynoso that made them winners of these accolades.
the future of canelo alvarez and eddy reynoso
Canelo and Eddy Reynoso have built a friendship that can even be seen as a family, as both boxer and trainer have expressed. Eddy Reynoso and his father were in charge of Saul’s professional career from the beginning, when he was just a boy under the age of 15.
Canelo Alavarez has made it clear that he sees Eddy as another father, as he has always been by his side in good times and not so good, and of course, the feeling is reciprocal, so much so that Eddy has a tattoo of Saul on one of his arms.
Together they have built a magnificent legacy for Mexican and world boxing, and their great feat of unifying all 4 belts in the super middleweight category has allowed them to be honored as the best boxer-trainer duo of the year 2021.
Canelo and Eddy Reynoso have made history so far, but there is no doubt that they will continue to do so through what they do best: boxing. A few weeks ago they announced that they are interested in fighting Ilunga Makabu, the WBC cruiserweight champion.
Apparently this fight has been complicated because Makabu must first face Thabiso Mchunu, who does not want to receive a step aside money. For this reason, it is still a little uncertain what will be the next step for Canelo, but what we are sure of is that he has very good options.
Staying at 168 lbs, Saul Canelo Alvarez could defend his belts against several possible fighters who have been doing a great job such as David Benavidez, Jermall Charlo or Demetrious Andrade (who could move up to this division). If Canelo wants to move up to 175 lbs he has a great prospect with Artur Beterbiev, Dmitry Bivol, Joe Smith Jr and even Mexican Gilberto ‘Zurdo’ Ramirez.
For this new year, do you think Canelo Alvarez can be recognized as the best boxer for the third time in a row? What could be the fight, or fights, that will allow the Mexican to continue to make his legacy bigger? For now, the only sure thing is that the Mexican champion is in a period of rest with his family and friends, and in a few months we will see him back in the ring.
