The undisputed super middleweight champion will put all of his belts on the line when he faces the American on September 30th, 2023. The Mexican has a lot to prove, given the criticism hanging over his last two performances. The failure to stop a much-older GGG and then John Ryder suggested that Alvarez was on the decline. His fight with Ryder was particularly noteworthy, since Canelo had been caught with numerous uppercuts, as his head movement was nowhere to be seen.
Although Alvarez has since then explained his hand injury as a reason for his below-par performances, it appears that the champion at 168 is leaving no stone unturned. In the video below, Canelo can be seen moving from side-to-side as he navigates his way out of any hypothetical punches. And that agility may be key since Charlo is expected to be lighter and quicker on his feet.
