CANELO ALVAREZ (52-1-2, 35 KOs) meets Sergey Kovalev (34-3-1, 29 KOs) for the WBO light-heavyweight title at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Saturday night and while there has been plenty of mutual respect between the two men there has been very little on display from Alvarez when it comes to his promoter Oscar De La Hoya.

The relationship has been strained since Golden Boy failed to secure an IBF middleweight title defence against Sergiy Derevyanchenko and the subsequent stripping of the title, but Alvarez has taken things a step further by questioning De La Hoya’s loyalty after his promoter posted a negative message on Ryan Garcia’s Instagram seemingly directed towards Canelo’s cornerman Eddy Reynoso.

“Bro, when you duck under, always keep your eye on your opponent. You tell your trainer that,” he is said to have written.
