Although WBO has stripped Charlo of the super welterweight belt, he will still be introduced as the undisputed 154 lbs champion opposite the undisputed 168 lbs titlist Canelo.
Mexican boxer Canelo Alvarez has reportedly signed a three-fight deal with the PBC which will begin with him facing ‘Iron Man’ next month. Meanwhile, the official posters for Canelo vs Charlo are already out.
Boxing fans seemed thrilled to witness the posters. Here’s a look at how they reacted.
57-2-2 as a pro, Canelo Alvarez hasn’t looked very dominant in the past few fights. After suffering an unexpected loss against Dmitry Bivol, Canelo beat an aged GGG and John Ryder on points and not by stoppage.
With a win over John Ryder, Canelo Alvarez ended his contractual stint with Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Promotions. Now that the P4P king has joined the PBC, he can get himself engaged in some fresh challenges on American soil.
Jermell Charlo’s twin brother, Jermall Charlo, can also be a valid future opponent for Canelo. Besides, a super fight between Canelo Alvarez and David Benavidez is something that the PBC can host under their banner.
That said, neither Canelo Alvarez nor Jermell Charlo should sleep on each other on the verge of entering a career-defining matchup for both.

How Does Jermell Charlo’s Record Look Before Canelo Alvarez?
Jermell Charlo holds a professional resume of 35 wins, 1 loss, and 1 draw, amongst which he has 19 KOs to tout. He has fought several big names like Brain Castano, Austin Trout, and many others. But Canelo will still be the biggest name in his record.
The same cannot be said about Canelo Alvarez, who has fought bigger boxing legends than Jermell Charlo like Floyd Mayweather, Gennadiy Golovkin, Shane Mosley, and others.
