Canelo’s trainer says Roach has polluted Cotto’s mind

roach991By Dan Ambrose: Eddy Reynoso, the trainer for new WBC middleweight Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (46-1-1, 32 KOs), thinks that Miguel Cotto’s trainer Freddie Roach has warped the mind of Cotto by making him think that he won the fight against Canelo last Saturday night at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Roach and Cotto surprised a lot of boxing fans after the fight by saying that they felt that they had won the contest. Floyd Mayweather Jr. thinks that Roach didn’t do a good job working Cotto’s corner in the fight by failing to realize how dire the situation was for the 35-year-old Puerto Rican fighter and by not telling him to step up the pace in the last half of the fight.
