Canelo Alvarez rips power shots during open media workout

Canelo holds his media workout ahead of his light heavyweight title fight with Sergey Kovalev.

Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

With Canelo Alvarez closing-in on his November 2nd light heavyweight title shot against reigning champion Sergey Kovalev, Canelo holds an open media workout for everyone to see.

In this particular segment you can watch Canelo rip off heavy body punches with his trainer Eddie Reynoso. Canelo appears to have some serious thud behind those punches, and given some sentiment that Kovalev doesn’t take it to the body very well, Canelo might be looking to hand him a colostomy bag.

Of course there are those who have serious questions about how Canelo’s power will translate up the the light heavyweight division, which I think is pretty fair, although if he cracks Kovalev with some of these shots I’m sure Kovalev will feel them.

Anyway, whether or not you want to read anything into this, here’s at least a chance to get a glimpse of Canelo’s current form as he prepares to jump two divisions to earn another major world title.
