Jermall Charlo & Dmitry Bivol

Canelo Alvarez has two offers to consider against Jermall Charlo or Dmitry Bivol for his next fight date on May 7 this weekend at Cinco de Mayo.

According to ESPN, the bid from PBC is one fight for Canelo (57-1-2, 39 KO) against the undefeated Jermal Charlotte (32-0, 22 KOs) to be held at 168, with the contest conducted in the super middleweight.

There is already a huge amount of interest from boxing fans in the United States about the fight between Canelo and Germal. If Canelo wanted to capitalize on that interest in his fight on May 7, it would be a smart move in his art because that’s the fight many fans would like to see right now.

Another offer Canelo received was a two-way deal by Matchroom Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn to face the WBA Light Heavyweight Champion. Dmitriy Bevol On the seventh of May,

Later in the year, the second fight in the Triple Threat against his opponent Gennady Golovkin On the Mexican Independence Day holiday on September 17th.

It would be a lot of money for Canelo, 31, if he were to get the two-fight deal that Hearn offered to take on Bivol and Golovkin, but that would require bravery on his part.

Also, Canelo will need to be a mature adult and let go of any past grudges he may still hold against GGG due to the trash talk made prior to the 2018 match.

Some boxing fans believe that one of the main reasons Canelo held back on giving Golovkin (41-1-1, 36 KOs) was because of things he and his former coach said in their last fight.

Fighting Bivol (19-0, 11 KOs) means Canelo will need to start rebounding now to get the size needed to face the Russian fighter by May 7.

After that fight, Canelo will need to drop some muscle to get back into the 168-pound division to defend against 40-year-old Golovkin. You can’t expect Golovkin to rise in two weight classes to face Canelo at 175.

Yes, Canelo could use his A-side muscle to force Golovkin into a light heavyweight fight if he excuses Bivol from his WBA title, but he won’t take credit from boxing fans if he beats the Kazakhstan fighter.

It would be bad enough that Kanelo Golovkin waited four years from 2018-2022 before facing him in a three-way match. Many boxing fans interpret that long Canelo GGG waiting for his third fight as a step of getting old enough to finally defeat him in an uncontroversial manner.

“Al Haymon’s PBC recently extended a one-battle bid to Alvarez to defend on May 7 the undisputed super middleweight championship against middleweight champion Jermall Charlo; sources said,” ESPN’s Mike Coppinger noted.

Charlo is the fight boxing fans want to see from Canelo now, instead of facing Bivol, Golovkin or Artur Beterbiev. A huge number of boxing fans will be excited to see Canelo and Charlo compete in the 168th PPV.

For Canelo, he needs to take the fight against 6’0″ Charlo shortly before he gets hit by someone. Jermol looked shaky in his last 160-pound WBC title defense against Juan Macías Montell last June in Houston, Texas.

Another offer came from Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing, a proposed two-fight deal that would put Canelo against light heavyweight champion Dmitry Bivol on May 7, according to sources. Battle Two: A long-awaited three-way fight between Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin on September 17, but This time, at 168 pounds for Alvarez’s four belts,” Coppinger said.
