Boxing fans are in for a real treat as we witness a rare clash between the best in two different weight classes: Canelo Alvarez, the undisputed super middleweight champion, and Jermell Charlo, the undisputed junior middleweight world champion.
Canelo undoubtedly holds several advantages in this clash, primarily because he’s taking on Charlo, who is moving up multiple weight classes. The latter must overcome many challenges, including adjusting his training regimen, maintaining the right weight balance and ensuring he doesn’t sacrifice speed while bulking up. He must also make sure his power translates effectively to these higher weight divisions and be prepared to withstand Canelo’s punches.
While Charlo may hold the edge in terms of athleticism, Canelo boasts superior punching power and endurance. Canelo’s strategy likely involves relentless pressure on Charlo, putting Charlo’s durability to the test.
However, what’s intriguing is Charlo’s demeanor in the leadup to this fight. His measured responses, composed demeanor and unwavering confidence in his abilities and team raise eyebrows. His newfound calm, humility and respect can be misconstrued as nerves. However, it reflects maturity and recognition of this incredible opportunity.
In a surprising twist, I’m picking Charlo to claim victory by unanimous decision. I believe he will demonstrate discipline in the ring, utilize his jab effectively and impress the judges with his ability to keep Canelo in check.
Prediction: Charlo wins by unanimous decision
