Jermell Charlo expresses confidence in the potential Canelo Alvarez showdown saying “I would take that fight easily”

Hailing from the fighting city of Houston, Jermell Charlo has always had his eyes on the prize. Over a decade later, Charlo has made that dream a reality. Despite only participating once a year for the previous three years, Charlo has made the most of his opportunities.

In 2022, the 32-year-old set right what he saw as an injustice. Charlo and Brian Castano battled to a split decision a year ago. But this time, Charlo left no doubt, stopping his opponent in the 10th round and claiming the undisputed title.

Jermell Charlo vs. Canelo Alvarez: The Dream Fight That Could Easily Happen After Charlo’s Undisputed Triumph

With his undisputed chase now complete, Charlo (35-1-1, 19 KOs) has set his sights on even bigger challenges. When asked about his ideal opponent in a recent interview on The Last Stand Podcast with Brian Custer, Charlo didn’t hesitate to mention a certain pound-for-pound superstar who fights in a higher weight class.

“Canelo,” Charlo answered confidently. “Jermell Charlo and Canelo. It can easily happen.”

After achieving his undisputed glory in 2021, the Mexican sensation suffered a setback in 2022, losing to Dmitry Bivol in a lackluster performance. He rebounded with a unanimous decision win against Gennadiy Golovkin, but the fire to prove himself still burns within him.

Alvarez with a superb record of 58-2-2 and 39 KOs, is scheduled to defend his WBO, IBF, WBC, and WBA super middleweight belts. The “cinnamon” against John Ryder on May 6th, is desperate to get back on track. If all goes well, he plans to lure Bivol back into the ring for a rematch.

Meanwhile, Charlo has a line of confident challengers vying for his attention. In the late summer, he will face WBO interim champion Tim Tszyu for the undisputed 154-pound title. However, Charlo has made it clear that if Alvarez comes knocking on his door with a fight offer, he won’t hesitate to accept.

“I would take that fight easily,” Charlo declared, showing his eagerness to face off against one of the biggest names in the sport.
