At the age of 33, Canelo Alvarez has already accomplished a great deal in the world of professional boxing. On Saturday night, he’ll attempt to grow his legacy even further when defending his undisputed super middleweight titles against Jermell Charlo. The challenger is moving up two weight classes from light middleweight, where he also happens to be an undisputed champion.


It’s the kind of encounter that a lot of fans have been wanting to see for quite some time. Now, they’ll get their wish, as we prepare to see it go down in Las Vegas.

In a recent interview with TMZ Sports, Canelo made it crystal clear that he believes he is still in his prime – and he aims to show that to the world tomorrow.

Canelo hits back at critics

When Canelo Alvarez is feeling as defiant as he seemed to be here, that’s a scary prospect for whoever is stepping into the squared circle with him. Jermell Charlo is an incredible talent in his own right and his chances of victory should be taken very seriously, but if the Mexican sensation shows up at his best, it’ll take an unbelievable effort for Charlo to stop him.
