Josesito Lopez sticking to a strict diet for Canelo fight...

Lopez at the weigh-in for his career boosting fight with Victor Ortiz.

WBC silver welterweight champion Josesito Lopez will be moving up in weight for the second time in two fights for his fight with Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez on September 15th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. To ensure that he puts on the weight in the correct way, he is sticking to a very strict diet.

As he is physically the smaller man, he has to gain a lot of weight whilst keeping his speed, accuracy, strength and fitness. Now obviously, putting the weight on whilst training hard everyday is a tough task, but Lopez believes that he is going about it the right way.

"I've had a camp of nearly nine weeks. A segment of its first portion consisted of a high protein diet, eating six times a day, every three hours, to maintain my weight, strength and speed," explained Lopez.

"Its a bit difficult to keep the weight whilst your training twice a day, six days a week, but I've retained it while remaining fast strong and healthy. I ate chicken every day, fish, roasted meat... And of course rice and beans."
