By Sean Jones: Ryan Garcia predicts Canelo Alvarez and trainer Eddy Reynoso will do “good” in their upcoming trilogy match against Gennadiy Golovkin on September 17th.

Canelo (57-2-2, 39 KOs) is coming into his third clash with Golovkin off the back of a loss to Dmitry Bivol on May 7th.

The well-schooled Bivol made Canelo look like a poorly conditioned fighter and one that could not make adjustments.

It’s nice of Ryan to give Canelo encouragement about his crucial third fight with 40-year-old Golovkin, but things might not work well for him.

If Canelo’s chronic stamina issues resurface in this fight, as we saw in his recent humiliating loss to Dmitry Bivol, he’ll lose to Golovkin and look like an old man.

The unbeaten lightweight contender Ryan (22-0, 18 KOs) recently left the Reynoso gym, saying he wasn’t given enough time to work with the busy trainer.

Ryan says he has no hard feelings about splitting with the famous coach, and he wishes him & Canelo well for their upcoming trilogy with Golovkin (42-1-1, 37 KOs).

Canelo made no attempts at using a plan B after his usual plodding walk-down style of fighting proved ineffective against Bivol in the first four rounds.

For Canelo not to even try to switch to an alternative plan against Bivol, it made him look like a regular fighter and NOT one of the elites that boxing fans view the Mexican star.

If Canelo loses to Golovkin on September 17th in their headliner on DAZN pay-per-view, he’s going to need to think seriously about retiring.

A loss to Golovkin would highlight the reality that Canelo’s skills have deteriorated in the last year, and he’s no longer the elite fighter boxing fans think of him.

It’s not just the Bivol fight where Canelo looks very average. If you look at how Canelo struggled against the super middleweight champions Billy Joe Saunders and Caleb Plant, it’s apparent he’s lost a lot from his game.

Those two fighters were arguably flawed paper champions and nothing like the talents of David Benavidez and David Morrell Jr at 168.

“It’s pretty self-evident. They are a great team, and they have accomplished a lot of great things,” said Ryan Garcia to Fighthype when asked why he split with Canelo’s trainer Eddy Reynoso.

“Canelo is a legendary fighter, but what I said was truthful. I think people are seeing it little by little. It’s not the fact that he’s lost [to Dmitry Bivol], because they’ve fought great fighters.

“I felt there was a lack of focus and a lack of [training] time [with Reynoso]. So, I made the decision based on myself. Eddy’s a great trainer, but you have to be there every day. It doesn’t matter how great you are.

“You have to be there every day, but I think they’re going to do good against GGG, and I hope for the best for the whole team moving forward. I don’t have any bad feelings towards anybody. I hope they’re doing A-okay,” said Ryan about Team Canelo.
