Canelo Alvarez Coming into Charlo Fight 100% Healthy
For many fans, undisputed super middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (59-2-2, 39 KO’s) remains the face of boxing. Even still, Alvarez has garnered a great deal of criticism for his loss to Super WBA light heavyweight champion and flat performance versus John Ryder. So much so, that a healthy contingent of fans believe that the redhead is on a notable decline. While he has heard this chatter, Canelo assures that these spotty outings will not be a factor in his upcoming duel with undisputed super welterweight champion Jermell “Iron Man” Charlo (35-1-1, 19 KO’s).
In somewhat of a surprise move, while conducting a brief interview on The Last Stand Podcast with Brian Custer, Canelo co-signed the sentiments.
“They are right because I am not able to train one hundred percent in those fights, [because of] my hand, I am not able to train one hundred percent. But right now I am able to train one hundred percent. I can work with Eddy [Reynoso] on the pads and everything, you’ve seen the videos. And when you don’t have those [good] training camps, [you’re] not confident one hundred percent in what you do. But right now, I’m just glad and happy to be able to train one hundred percent . . . and hit the heavy bag hard, so that makes me feel confident.”
BACK TO THE BRICKS
Even now, there is and has been, for some time, a significant cluster of fans who want to see Alvarez lock horns with two-time super middleweight champion David Benavidez. So for all these rationales, it’s of great importance for Canelo not only to win, but to win in style. Therefore, for his sake, let’s hope that he is hitting on all cylinders when he next tests his might against Charlo. Thankfully, no matter what happens, 3Kings Boxing will be here to report the aftermath.
