I’m Back! Canelo Álvarez Affirms His Dominance with Triumph Over Jermell Charlo

By Jorge Castillo

As the final bell echoed through the T-Mobile Arena on Saturday night, signifying the end of a decidedly one-sided contest, Canelo Álvarez extended a sportsmanlike gesture by touching gloves with his defeated adversary, embracing him, and offering words of encouragement.

Álvarez had just demonstrated his dominance over Jermell Charlo. The outcome was clear to everyone in attendance. Charlo himself couldn’t dispute the inevitable result. Throughout the 12-round bout, Álvarez was never in danger, so much so that he didn’t even take a seat in his corner between rounds. He systematically dismantled Charlo, who, despite his self-professed lionheartedness, found himself resembling the timid lion from ‘The Wizard of Oz.’

Moments later, ring announcer Jimmy Lennon Jr. officially declared the verdict: a unanimous decision in favor of Álvarez, marking his third successful defense of the undisputed super middleweight championship. While two judges credited Charlo with just two rounds, the third judge awarded him only one, a concession that even seemed generous given the lopsided nature of the contest.

Canelo Álvarez, the unified super middleweight champion, delivered a resounding performance on Saturday night as he dominated Jermell Charlo, securing a unanimous decision victory. This decisive win has likely put to rest any speculation that Álvarez might be showing signs of decline as a boxer.

The judges’ scores of 119-108, 118-109, and 118-109 in favor of Álvarez reflected the one-sided nature of the contest. Charlo, the unified junior middleweight champion, had moved up two weight classes to face Álvarez.

Despite the height and reach advantage held by Charlo, who stands 4 inches taller than the 5-foot-8 Álvarez with a 2½-inch reach advantage, Álvarez’s superiority was evident throughout the fight.

In the lead-up to this bout, there had been some discussion about Álvarez’s perceived decline. However, in this match, he showcased the form and prowess that had made him a boxing icon.

Álvarez’s recent record showed a unanimous decision loss to Dmitry Bivol in May 2022, a unanimous decision victory over Gennady Golovkin a year ago, and a comfortable victory over John Ryder in May. Nonetheless, Álvarez, hailing from Mexico, now has his sights set on the future.

WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman has designated David Benavidez as the mandatory challenger for the super middleweight belt. However, Álvarez has not yet committed to facing Benavidez, a 26-year-old boxer with a remarkable record of 27-0, boasting all but four wins by knockout. Should Álvarez choose not to face Benavidez, the WBC is likely to vacate his championship.
