Reynoso asserted that Alvarez has successfully moved up weight categories, ever since his bout with Floyd Mayweather. He highlighted Alvarez’s triumphant ascension through four weight classes since his super welterweight beginnings, hinting that Crawford could come up to Super Middleweight as well. Furthermore, Reynoso contends that a match with Terence Crawford would hold particular significance for ‘Bud’. He underscores the vital role of confidence in pursuing such a high-stakes fight.

As he said (as translated by Google), “In the records that I have from the preparations when we fought with Floyd Mayweather, he walked and started the camps at a certain weight, and now it’s the same. What he did was move up from category to category. We have moved up four categories since super welterweight, so I don’t see why he can’t move up as well. This fight would make more sense for, let’s say, Terence Crawford. The important thing is that he has confidence, so let’s go, let’s see.”
