Could Alvarez cement his legacy with a victory over Jermell Charlo

Canelo Álvarez will against undisputed junior middleweight world champion, the "hard hitter", Jermell Charlo in September and both fighters have stated this will be a great fight that fans will love.


“I’m really excited to make history once again on September 30,” said Charlo. “This is the biggest fight in boxing and I’m coming to leave it all in the ring like I do every time. I manifested this fight into existence and earned it with everything I’ve done in this sport so far. Canelo is a great fighter, but he’s gonna see what Lions Only is all about. When the fight’s over, people are gonna have to recognize that I’m the best fighter in the sport.”


With this win, it will make the third consecutive defense of his WBC, WBA, IBF and WBO super middleweight world titles against Charlo in the first matchup of the four-belt era pitting two reigning undisputed champions against each other and they are ready!


Canelo, 33, knocked out BrianC astaño in round 10 of their May 2022 rematch, after a July 2021 draw in slugfest.

Capturing world titles at 154, 160, 168 and 175-pounds, Charlo (59-2-2, 39 KOs), he may well be the first man to enter the ring, during the four-belt era to defend all four titles successfully three consecutive times. What a major feat!

President of TGB Promotions, Tom Brown says, “Canelo is already a certified Hall of Famer but continues to seek the biggest and best fights for his devoted fans. Charlo has also established himself as one of the sport’s top pound-for-pound fighters and would leave no doubt about his place in boxing’s hierarchy with a win on September 30. This is a night you won’t want to miss on SHOWTIME PPV and at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.”


“Canelo Álvarez and Jermell Charlo are fighters who dare to be great every time they enter the ring and have shown that once again by going headfirst into this dream matchup between the two best fighters in their divisions,” said Tom Brown.
