Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarezundisputed super middleweight champion, assured this Wednesday that in his fight on Saturday with the American Jermell Charlo must prove that he is still at the top of boxing.
“You should never prove something to others because they always have something bad or good to say. The only thing I have to do on Saturday is prove to myself that I’m still on top.“said the super middleweight champion of the World Association, the World Council, the International Federation and the World Boxing Organization.
The Mexican champion, originally from Guadalajara, and the Louisiana-born boxer, will face each other this Saturday at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada where Alvarez Barragan will expose his super middleweight belts.
It will be the return of “Canelo” Alvarez to the rings, after he won by unanimous decision last May to the British John Ryder in it Akron Stadium in Guadalajara.
Even though he only suffered two defeats on a path marked by 59 wins and two drawsand ‘Canelo’ is singled out at 33 years old not being at your best level.
In May 2022 he lost to the Russian Dmitrii Bivol when I was looking for the light heavyweight title.
I feel great and ready for this fight. Jermell is right, I have nothing to prove, but especially this time I have something to prove to him, who never believed in my abilities. It’s an extra motivation for me.
Charlo He is champion of the pthat super welterweighttwo divisions below the super middleweight, something that has also unleashed criticism of ‘Canelo’, since it was expected that he would face Jermell’s brother, Jarmall Charlo, who fights in the medium category.
“It is difficult to tell Charlo what he is going to face in the ring on Saturday, you will have to feel it. It will be different than what you are used to because “He hasn’t faced someone like me.”said the Mexican.
