Canelo Feels Great Following Drop In Weight

Canelo Feels Great Following Drop In Weight

Moving down in weight can be rough on any combat sports athlete. For Canelo Alvarez, it was just another day. At one point at 168 for super-middleweight gold, Canelo will be dropping down weight once again to meet Daniel Jacobs.

Canelo moved up to beat Rocky Fielding for the WBA World Super-Middleweight Title inside Madison Square Garden back in December. While there is a rehydration clause in the contract between the two fighters, Canelo believes that the weight cut won’t affect him.

“I feel great,” Alvarez stated “This is my weight class. I feel comfortable at this weight class. We had the right sparring. We had the hard work, as always, and I feel really good right now.”
