Jermall Charlo Plans To ‘Expose’ Canelo Alvarez
WBC Middleweight Champion Jermall Charlo thinks he has what it takes to “expose” Canelo Alvarez.
Fight fans are already salivating at a planned clash between Canelo and Billy Joe Saunders this May but Charlo is also on the minds of boxing enthusiasts. The undefeated bruiser, who calls himself the “Hitman” and “The Future of Boxing,” has admitted he’d be open to a massive payday against Canelo. Now, he’s revving up the trash talk.
During a live stream on Instagram, Charlo said he’s prepared to give Canelo fans a rude awakening (h/t Bad Left Hook).
“Where the real champions at? Where the real lions at? … Who ya’ll want to see me fight next? What makes the most sense? … I’m thinking like Eubank or somebody. Who ya’ll wanna see me take out? … I’ll fight GGG.
“That’s why I don’t want to fight no Eubank because ya’ll already [expletive] doubting me, ya’ll don’t even really like that fight ‘cause ya’ll know I’m bigger than that … Remember that time Eubank pulled up to the — what was that, we was doing a [expletive] photoshoot for Showtime. Eubank’s daddy pulled up on me, he tried to size me up, and was shivering! His daddy was shivering, you know what I’m saying.
“My one fight this year, I’m exposing him. Canelo-Charlo.”
Charlo was last seen in action back in September 2020. He successfully defended the WBC Middleweight Championship against Sergiy Derevyanchenko. Charlo earned the unanimous decision victory.
Canelo’s last fight was in December. He took on Callum Smith for the WBA (Super), WBC, and The Ring Super-Middleweight Titles. Canelo captured all the gold with a lopsided unanimous decision win. The Mexican star is scheduled to put his championships on the line against Avni Yildirim on February 27.
