After the “Canelo” Álvarez proclaimed himself as world champion of the WBA, WBC and The Ring, after defeating Callum smith At the Alamodome in Texas, many considered him the best pound for pound in the world, but not all, since there are those who do not believe in his abilities and, according to his coach, Eddy reynoso, this is because they lack the guts to accept it.
“It’s the best, pound for pound. The politics of the anti-Canelo people is the reason it is not number one on some lists. If the anti-Canelo people voted with guts, they would recognize it“Eddy Reynoso explained in an interview with Boxing Scene.

The debate about who is the best boxer today is extensive and subjective, so these discussions are always heated. Until a few months ago, most experts agreed that the best pound for pound was Vasyl Lomachenko; However, after he was defeated by Teófimo López last October, some chose to choose “Canelo” as the best and others Terence Crawford; however, Reynoso does not agree with those who favor the latter option.
“Saúl has been fighting better boxers than Terence Crawford, and that’s what really counts.”Added the best coach of 2019.
