Canelo Alvarez vs Jermall Charlo possibly is the first event that AI Haymon will feature the WBA, WBC, IBG, and WBO super middleweight champion defending his title.
Reports suggest, Canelo Alvarez seems to lock September 16th as the date for his first fight against Charlo, who hasn’t been into fights in the last two years.
Canelo Alvarez got his free agency back in 2020 and didn’t commit to any longform contract that is higher than a couple of fights; that was how he called it quits with Eddie Hearn’s promotion that was a surprise for him. After thatz according to what Carlo had said, the fighter was happy with the methods things were going on and working out but he was interested in exploring new ways.
At this stage, AI Haymon’s PBC roster has a line of fighters that would be interested to get on the mat with the Mexican sensation who’s still to have his K.O. finish. This might be the one.
The man following Charlo might be the super-middleweight world Champion David Benavidez, who currently has had an excellent streak so far.
After that there is David Morell, who at 9-0, 8 KOs will seemingly raise his hand for a shot at the belt, and speculations at this time go on, however, there are few names out there like Errol Spence and Terrance Crawford, just to begin with the list.
