Canelo Alvarez vs. Jermall Charlo = 50-50 fight says Jaron Ennis

by Shawn Jones: Yaron Potts Ines says he views the rumored May 7 battle between Canelo Alvarez and Germal Charlo as a “50-50” match and feels it will be “tough” for both players.

Canelo (57-1-2, 39 KOs) is in desperate need of a good opponent in his next fight this weekend at Cinco de Mayo on May 7, and undefeated Jermol (32-0, 22 KOs) fits the bill perfectly.

For the first time in four years, Canelo will face a fighter that boxing fans want to see fight.

Since 2018 after being beaten by Gennady Golovkin in a rematch, Canelo has given up an elite-level opposition fight and has continued to fight for the past four years fighting British men, older fighters on their last legs and his old sparring partner.

Needless to say, the cannon fodder that Canelo hit for the past four years was the equivalent of a sloppy back road, with nothing anyone could see.

If Canelo gets into a fight with Jermall on May 7, he’ll finally face someone who has a real chance of hitting him, as long as the referee is high.

It would be nice if Canelo could organize the fight with Jermall in a neutral state, as far away from Nevada as possible. The last thing we want is another controversial decision in Las Vegas along the same lines that we saw in Canelo’s fight against Golovkin and Irishman Lara.

Canelo vs Jermala = 50-50 fight

“I love that fight, it’s a good fight,” Jaron Potts Innes told Fighthype on Canelo vs. Germal Charlo. “I want to see it. I’m not sure. I think it’s going to be a tough fight for both guys. I think this is a 50-50 fight.

“Charlo is kinda old. You have to remember that Canelo has also gained weight. It’s kind of,” Ines said.

Shawn Jones doesn’t see Canelo vs Germal Charlo in a 50-50 fight. This is more than 60-40 in favor of Jermall, as long as we don’t see any Mickey Mouse points like we did in Alvarez’s fights with JJJ and Lara.

Charlo’s best win:

  • Sergey Derevianchenko
  • Julian J. Rock Williams
  • Austin Trout
  • John Macias Montell
  • Cornelius Bondrag
  • Matt Korobov

Jermall is an incredible talent of size, strength, speed and boxing ability that Canelo hadn’t seen in eons. That’s why Shawn Jones doubts Canelo will go ahead with a fight with Jermol because he’s too good.

The way Charlo dominated Sergey Derevianchenko in 2020, it was easy for him to do Canelo’s job and would likely beat him by unilateral decision in 22 rounds.

“What does the future hold for the undisputed super middleweight, a 168-pound fight, a light-heavyweight race, or a legacy boosted to combat?” Chris Mannix told the DAZN Boxing Show about Canelo Alvarez’s next move.

“We’ll start in the division that only took Canelo eleven months to reign at super middleweight. I’ve heard rumors of Germal Charlo, Demetrius Andrade and GGG applying for the triple. Desperate fighting fans still want to see that triple. David Benavidez is in there too. “.

I think [Jermall] Charlo nowAKP when asked who is likely to fight next, said Canelo. “All these fights are great, and at this point in Canelo’s career, it doesn’t matter who he’s fighting. People will attack him.

“If he goes up to light heavyweight, they’re going to say these guys aren’t really skilled. If he goes up to cruiserweight, that guy [Ilunga Makabu]He’s not a good fighter.

“The reason I like it [Jermall] Charlo’s fight is I know his resume isn’t very deep, but the guy has a couple of good names on his resume. He defeated Austin Trout, who only lost to Lara Irislandi. Charlotte won [Sergiy] Derevyanchenko and Derevyanchenko’s body is similar to Canelo’s body type.

I don’t compare him [Jermall] For Canelo’s skills, but he has quick hands, a similar forward stance, he obviously looked good against Derevianchenko. He has a name. People are fascinated by the Charlo match.

“Even these Charlo aren’t super middleweights, he’s a middleweight champ. A.K. said.

GGG option for Canelo

It is highly unlikely that Canelo and his coach/manager Eddie Rinoso will choose to fight Gennady Golovkin on May 7th, even though the fight will earn them big money.

Golovkin (41-1-1, 36 KOs) proved so difficult for Canelo that many boxing fans believe he was robbed twice against the Mexican star in two Las Vegas matches at the T-Mobile Arena.

Canelo & Reynoso would never choose Golovkin again because it would take a lot of pain to face him for the third time. It would be like Canelo willingly agreeing to put his hand on a burning hot oven dish and hold it for a minute.

He will not, so it is not even possible to think of Golovkin in a third fight. Too bad, because Canelo’s precious legacy will be gone forever due to his two controversial battles with Golovkin.

All this time Canelo squandered winning division titles against the paper champions means nothing as his resume is already permanently tainted by his fights with Golovkin, as well as his controversial victories over Irislandi Lara and Austin Trout.

Those fights reminded the writer of watching a professional wrestling match where you knew who would be the winner early on no matter what happened in the match.

“I heard about GGG is still the biggest fight [for Canelo]Mannix said. “Given GGG now approaching 40, why should Canelo fight Golovkin’s now?”

“People want to see the trilogy [Canelo vs. Golovkin] Because there is unfinished business out there,” said Sergio Mora. “If you look at the great trio of all time with Ali Frazier, of course, it wasn’t necessary. It ended in a knockout.

“Look at last year’s fight between Fury and Wilder, it wasn’t necessary and that was Fight of the Year. You mentioned that kind of fight. Golovkin would pay 40.

“The first two fights were pretty skinny, but a lot of people have a kind of memory where they forget real quick. The little guns come in, and they look at Charles, Peterbiff, Joe Smith, Benavidez. They want youngsters.

“I still want a GGG fight because there’s unfinished business out there. I need closure, I’ve watched these two guys in these fights, and they’ve been so skinny. I need that closure.

“I know how the fights will end, and I know how the majority of people will know how it will end, but I still need to see it. I still need to see the knockout,” Moura said in hinting that he thought Canelo would win the treble with JJJ.

Rinos rejects David Benavidez

“The only real middleweight in that group is David Benavidez, who was a two-time champion at 168 pounds,” Mannix said.

When Canelo coach and manager Eddie Rinoso talked about Benavides, he was very dismissive. He shrugs his shoulders and says, ‘He didn’t really do anything to win that kind of fight.’ What should Benavids do? “

It’s interesting that Canelo coach/manager Eddie Reynoso is very quick to dismiss former two-time WBC middleweight champion David Benavidez (25-0, 22 KOs) as a potential opponent, given that Alvarez faced an opposition that offered much less than him. during their career.

Look at Canelo’s opposition since 2018:

  • Avni Yildirim
  • Billy Joe Saunders
  • Caleb Factory
  • Danny Jacobs
  • Callum Smith
  • Rocky Fielding

Yildirim has been Canelo’s sparring partner and hasn’t fought in two years since losing to Anthony Dirrell when the Mexican star picked him to fight last year. What did Yildirim do to deserve a fight against Canelo, apart from being his former sparring partner?

Jacobs’ claim to fame is to beat Sergei Derevianchenko with a questionable decision, a fighter who Benavidez is likely to destroy. Other than that, Jacobs’ best CV win was over Sergio Moura. When Jacobs tried to climb, he was beaten by Gennady Golovkin, Canelo and Dmitry Bevol.
