It will be undisputed versus undisputed tonight in Las Vegas as Saul “Canelo” Alvarez defends his super middleweight belts against Jermell Charlo.
Canelo, 33, is aiming for a third successful title defense in a row, having overtaken John Ryder in May and old rival Gennady Golovkin 12 months ago.
Prior to these victories, the Mexican suffered a points defeat to Dmitry Bivol in a light heavyweight title fight in May 2022. A week after that fight, Charlo stopped Brian Castano to retain the undisputed super welterweight title after the pair fought to a one-point draw in 2021.
Charlo’s twin brother Jermall was expected to box Canelo here, but instead the WBC middleweight champion will stay away from the ring for two years. So it is the younger (one minute) of the Americans, 33, who will challenge Canelo.
