On February 27 WBC super middleweight champion, Saul Álvarez defends his crown against Turkish challenger Avni Yildirim.
An eagle against Turkey; However, it could also be said that it will be a battle of Mexicans as Aztec blood runs through the veins of both coaches.
Eddy Reynoso who, together with his father, Chepo Reynoso, has guided the career of Saul Álvarez. Eddy dreamed of being a great boxer and champion; However destiny led him down a different path.
Before Saul, Eddy had already helped crown Oscar “Chololo” Larios champion, and although he has always worked hand together with his father, today he has his own fighters, Oscar Valdés and Ryan García.
For Eddy there is no magic formula, only hard work, discipline and the hunger of always wanting to be the best, no matter if you are at the top.
Avni Yildirim, who arrives at this commitment with a record of 21 wins, 12 of them via KO and only two defeats, is completely motivated to make history, by defeating Boxing`s greatest current star.
Convinced that this is by far the most important fight of his career, he sought the skills, experience and planning flair of Joel Díaz, a man who has worked with Francisco Vargas, Timothy Bradley, Ruslan Provodnikov, Omar Figueroa and Lucas Matthysse.
Joel, who is also aware that Avni does not arrive as the favorite, has been clear in saying that the preparation for this fight will speak for itself, and that being under the scrutiny of everyone does not take away his restful night time hours, as he knows that working under pressure is a sure fire, under fire challenge.
The commitment is great but Joel not only counts on his long experience as a trainer, but also on Avni’s mentality and heart, because if Diaz is sure of one thing, it is that this fighter has courage, stamina, power and the mentality of a winner.
