Canelo Alvarez Respectfully Ranks the Charlo Brothers
Undisputed super middleweight champion, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (59-2-2, 39KO), recently shared his perspective on why he considers undisputed junior middleweight champion Jermell “Iron Man” Charlo (35-1-1, 19KO) to be a more compelling opponent than WBC middleweight champion Jermall “Hit Man” Charlo.
During the second press conference held to promote their upcoming mega-fight, Canelo delved into the reasons behind his preference.
“I think both are great fighters. No disrespect to them, I think both are great fighters. But, I think Jermell has fought the better opposition and I think he’s the better fighter. That’s what I think.”
Initially, the boxing community had been led to believe that Canelo was set to face the WBC middleweight champion. It’s worth acknowledging that some fans and pundits were not particularly enthusiastic about Alvarez taking on the Hit Man, especially given his extended absence from the ring spanning over two years.
This is why a number of individuals within the boxing circle, despite their initial surprise, found relief in Alvarez’s revelation that his opponent would be Iron Man. Many fans and pundits openly agree with Canelo. A direct comparison of their records and accomplishments bodes better for Iron Man
Charlo is stepping up two weight divisions for this fight, a significant move that doesn’t faze him. He maintains his confidence in his ability to emerge victorious.
These two undisputed champions are gearing up to put it all on the line on September 30. The showdown will be broadcast live on Showtime PPV from Las Vegas.
