Charlo Vs. Canelo: How Would It Go?
Jermell Charlo isn’t one to hold his tongue and he made sure to let it be known that he isn’t impressed by the aura of Canelo Alvarez.
Charlo is the WBA (Super), WBC, IBF, and The Ring Light-Middleweight Champion. He was already the WBC titleholder going into his bout with Jeison Rosario. He captured the rest of the gold by knocking out Rosario with a body punch in the eighth round.
While Charlo competes 14 pounds lighter than Canelo, who is a super-middleweight, he still hurled a rant on the Mexican star. Here’s what Charlo had to say on not being intimidated by Canelo during a live chat with fans (h/t Bad Left Hook).

“I’ll [expletive] Canelo up. [expletive] Canelo. I don’t care about no Canelo. If I was in Canelo weight bro — if I’ma lose, I’ma go out with that loss to him, not no punk ass Harrison. I ain’t going out losing to no [expletive] ass Harrison that can’t [expletive] with me for real. Let me lose to someone like Canelo since ya’ll think he’s so much better than me, let me see what it’s about.
“Too bad I’m at 154. I’m at 154, he’s not coming this way. That’s the weight, I can’t go up in weight. Stop asking me to fight 160 fighters, 168 fighters — I can’t go up in weight. I got all of the belts here, I go up in weight I lose my belts, I lose my status, and I done worked too hard to get it.”
