Canelo Is Still King
In what's been hailed as the ultimate clash of champions, Canelo Alvarez proved once again that he operates on a different level in the world of boxing. In a historic matchup, Canelo defended his undisputed super middleweight title by delivering a commanding performance against Jermell Charlo, securing a unanimous decision victory inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
The judges' scorecards spoke loud and clear: 119-108, 118-109, and 118-109, all in favor of Canelo. This win marked his 60th professional victory and a unique achievement as the first fighter in modern boxing history to successfully defend an undisputed championship for the third time.
Right from the start, it was evident that Canelo had no intention of underestimating Charlo's power. He aggressively closed the distance, relentlessly targeting Charlo's body with powerful shots. The pressure he applied slowed Charlo's movement, and in the seventh round, a devastating right hand followed by an uppercut sent Charlo to the canvas.
Canelo continued to dictate the pace, suffocating Charlo's efforts to mount a comeback. It's worth noting that Charlo, moving up two weight classes to face Canelo at 168 pounds, displayed incredible bravery but found himself outmatched.
In the aftermath of this dominant display, Canelo left no room for doubt, proclaiming, 'Nobody can beat this Canelo,' in a conversation with Showtime's Jim Gray. Once again, he showcased his undeniable prowess in the ring and solidified his status as an unbeatable force in the world of boxing.
