Boxing News: Canelo to fight Jermell, not Jermall » July 10, 2023 – Fight News

Published

on





Undisputed super middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez announced on social media that he will fight undisputed super welterweight champion Jermell Charlo on September 30 in Las Vegas. Canelo was previously believed to be fighting WBC middleweight champion Jermall Charlo, who hasn’t fought in 24 months, but with Jermall still unable to fight, Jermell got the call to move up two weight divisions. He was previously slated to fight WBO interim beltholder Tim Tszyu in September.
Canelo Charlo
Will it be at a catch weight?
Nope, the article says, Jermell will be moving up two (2) weight divisions. In other words, they will be fighting at the Super-Middleweight pound limit.
I think Alvarez will have the edge in this one. Alvarez the fresher of both fighters. Alvarez will stalk Jermell down most of the fight and rack up points landing counters. Alvarez UD.
Idk about being fresher since Canelo recently had a fight in May while Charlo’s last fight was back in May ln 2022 1-year ago. Charlo should be the fresher fighter, but That is Canelo always staying active with 2 to 3 fights a year. He’s always fight ready.
Did you consider the weight advantage in Canelo favor, plus rehydration.
If two fighters were equally match, the fighter fighting at his weight has an unfair advantage
If jermall was going to be easy jermell will be easier
I prefer canelo vs Andrade
i don’t know about that…. Andrade won’t fight, he runs, we wanna see knockdowns and lots of blood.
That’s a joke. Andrade is a trash fighter always fighting scrubs. He will get knocked out in 5.
It’s funny you should mention that because guess next if he makes past Charlo. Canelo has a 3 fight deal with PBC and the list goes like this: Charlo, Andre, David B.
Yes, and PBC wants to make a lot of money with Canelo. Better business move to have Canelo face and beat a Charlo first, then match against Benevidez so that fight is a bigger money maker. If Canelo loses to Benevidez, the third fight is still there for Spence, Jr., even if he loses to Crawford, or he could rematch Benevidez if the way the fight goes merits it.
So Charlo hasn’t been able to face Tim, but now he sees a huge payday its time to fight? Seems like Tim potentially got screwed. Hopefully the winner will be forced to face Tim so he is not completely screwed over. Its good that Tim didn’t put his career on hold waiting for Charlo.
My thoughts exactly.
Doubt it, derrick. This charlo is moving up two weight classes to fight canyellow. No way, tim moves up that high.
Tim doesnt come across as being afraid of a challenge. If Charlo does well and loses I could imagine Tim saying he could do better. Plus we are talking about 14 pounds and considering Jermell has been out of the ring for so long Im guessing he will still have to cut weight to face Canelo at this point.
If Canelo wins and he fight at 168 lbs, how will Tim fight him? Giving all the advantages to Canelo
I would assume Tim could face Canelo the same way Jermell is. This is not a huge jump in weight and I think Tim is proving to have real skills. Most likely Tim wont worry about it since there are so many fights in and closer to his weight, I just mentioned it would be nice if Tim was offered the same options as the guy whos stung him on for so long just to run off.
Yes, he could, but there is a big difference. Charlo doesn’t have a 0 to fight for, and Tim does.
I disagree that the weight difference is nothing. 14 lbs + rehydrating is a big difference. 2 divisions over
This just proves that Charlo is soft like Twinkie filling. He wants no smoke from the Aussie kid.
Well, if CANELO beats JERMELL, most likely, TSZYU will challenge CANELO, but he would have to go up two (2) weight divisions. The fight against Jermell Charlo would no longer be interesting.
I hope Tim doesn’t play any part of it, in the event Canelo wins
I wanted Charlo vs Tszyu because I believe Tszyu can win. He’s ducked Tim now he got his big payday with Canelo and will get knocked out and sent back to the Welterweights to loose his titles to Tszyu. Tim will be his mandatory.
It’s called maximum reward for minimum risk. Charlo has nothing to lose against Alvarez, but everything to lose against Tzsyu. In other words, he’s running from Tim.
If Canelo wins he definitely isn’t moving down to 154 to face Tyszu. Tyszu will get a shot a 154 belts.
The WBO is expected to elevate the undefeated Tszyu from interim to full world champion.
I hope so, ge deserves it, and Tim doesn’t have to be part of Canelo games
At the very least there is the intrigue of two undisputed champs facing each other. As long as he doesn’t forsake his roadwork every morning, I see Canelo winning this one.
W 14lbs/ 2 div + rehydration advantages to Canecheat
Boxing run by corrupt American men in suits you don’t see. The same criminals that protected Floyd’s undefeated record are the same corrupt Americans who padded Deontay Wilder’s career. Today we discover a deal done behind an international fighter who’s done everything asked of him (Tim Tszyu) by the powers that be only to find out he’s been hoodwinked. America is a corrupt country politically and clearly it’s sporting bodies are no different.
Not only that, but America isn’t even a real country. It’s officially a S-corporation.
OK, lets say you are correct…. why do you bother with the sport then? (including commenting on here, watching, e tc) go watch badmington.
Because fanboys like you who just got into boxing ( The Floydy) are satisfied with more business and less boxing and don’t like the sport enough to call it out. Weak fans weak sport. Fanboys are the cancer to boxing that is responsible for the Jake Paul’s, the Bud v Spence delay and Floyd’s ducking and dodging. True fan’s call out BS. Fanboys whack off to weigh ins press conferences and garbage fights.
You mean boxing is corrupt as a whole right? Every country has had obvious home town cooking throughout the history of the sport and there is no such thing as a commission to fairly represent the fighters worldwide. As far as the politics go, yep, corrupt as can be. My favorite line to sum up our political needs is that DC needs an enema.
Canelo can’t even speak American last time i checked that lad is Mexican…. Yep Charlo was playing games with Tim 100% . He gets 5m for losing to Canelo- it’s an absolute forgone conclusion and goes back down and will get the same money he was always getting to fight Tim.
Well, this seems out of the blue. Wonder if this will be a one time thing for Jermell, or is he done with 154? Also, Jermall has been off for 24 months and he’s still not ready to fight, even with a huge payday on the line? Wonder what he’s going through exactly?
Charlo was terrified of Tszyu so now he moves up in weight with NO chance at all but collects his biggest paycheck. smart move.
I would have done the same…
Nothing smart but enabling Canecheat
Tai…your name calling is so original. Call him Canecheat one more time….maybe someone will finally laugh at your attempt at humor.
So it seems
3 times charlo ducks tszyu.. gotta be official that he’s scared of tszyu by now
…but business-wise, it was a smart move. The payday for fighting Canelo will be tenfold higher than against TSZYU.
He doesn’t have a realistic chance of winning, just for the Benjamins
He has to get the money fight in while he can. Fair chance he loses to Tszyu.
Tszyu surely becomes full WBO Champ now?
Not at all. CHARLO is not relinquishing his title. He is just moving two weight divisions to challenge Canelo.
Well, I think any of the can happen,
The WBO can force Charlo to fight Tim. Honestly, I don’t think so.
Charlo can pay Tim a step aside purse
In lieu of Charlo fighting Canecheat the WBO can recognize Tim as a full 154 lbs champ
He will more then likely be stripped of his belts Tim will be made WBO champion and Mendoza will be WBC champion. One of the ways to lose your belt is changing weight division and not taking on your mandatory.
This is taken from a boxing website regarding interim champions.
Occasionally, the world champion of a particular weight division is temporarily unable to defend his championship because of medical, legal, or other reasons that are beyond the champion’s control. When this case occurs, two highly ranked contenders will fight for the interim championship of the same weight division—leading to two champions existing in the same weight division simultaneously. Once the world champion is able to return, he must fight against the interim champion. The winner of this bout reunifies the weight division as sole world champion. If the world champion cannot return or moves to a different weight division, the interim champion becomes the world champion.
Garbage fight for canyellow. No way this charlo does anything to him. Let tim fight the winner of Spence and Crawford. Both those guys are moving to 154.
Tim gets wrecked by Spence or Crawford! FACTS!
Canelo is officially the biggest bitch in all of boxing. Only casuals really believed that Canelo was facing everybody while moving up and down divisions. He has always been the ultimate cherry picker and has a very tainted career. This latest fight is proof positive of that. The WBO should strip Jermell immediately and if they don’t then team Tszyu should sue. Charlo is cashing out here and I’m glad that both brothers will be out of boxing soon. Good riddance!
I see that you got a casual fan thumbs down. It’s probably one of those Rock star fans of Canelo. Everything you said is on point and factual. He should at least fight the 160lb Charlo undisputed champ. I have no respect for that kind of stuff.
Luis, it’s not my intention to barge in but remember, boxing is a business. Moving two (2) weight classes to challenge Canelo is a smart move for Jermell Charlo. Also, it is an intelligent move for Canelo since if he were to fight DMITRY BIVOL, Canelo Alvarez would lose again.
Raul, you are spot on! Boxing is a business and it’s all about money!
I am sorry, but there is no chance for Charlo. He is doing it for the Benjamin’s.
This fight has not challenge for the cheat.
I see the fight as an illusion to sell the Pacific ocean, the fans are not getting their money worth
Which proves that cinnamon only takes fights that he knows are in the bag beforehand. Thank you for making my case for me.
You’ve been programmed by corrupt American television executives to believe boxing is more a business than a sport. Ali v Foreman Frazier Liston Holmes Norton average age 27 combined losses 2 when Ali fought them. These were fights made not for business but for rankings and the fan. If you want business go read a Donald Trump book. Boxing is a sport you fanboy.
What is the world coming to?…casuals calling others casuals SMH casual
I hope so
Does anyone wonder if the Charlo twins swap identities?
Classic Canelo selection. Always selecting the weaker fighter. He’s fighting the Charlo that is 154lbs and has stumbled a bit. Mexican fans only see Canelo as a Rock Star and don’t see what is doing because they don’t know boxing. Why doesn’t he fight the Charlo twin that is 160lbs undisputed champion?
LOL, ok, so the thousands and thousands of Mexican that follow and watch boxing every weekend don’t know about boxing but you do? you must be PR.
Lol, just what just about Nobody wants or needs to see.. it’s a shame team Canelo Won’t do better than this
Love it! Jermell Charlo daring to be great like the original man God Divinity melinated warriors; Mayweather, Jones Jr, Sugar Ray Leonard, James Toney, Evander Holyfield, Tommy Hearns, Pernell Whitaker, among others who have moved up the weight classes and won and unified titles. Let’s see if Charlo can do what Kell Brook couldn’t do when he took on GGG. Smart business move and legacy defining opportunity. PBC must be given credit for getting the fans the best fights. Interesting how many of you are given Charlo no chance. Canelo went up to 168 and unified, why can’t Charlo?
Big car just scared to fight tzyu and canelo no better fighting bloke half his size
It’s sellout fans like you who ruined boxing.
This comment by DMV is why boxing has cancer. Weak fans weak sport. Fanboy.
Big boy! So true. DMV always has weak statements. Charlo is not daring to be great, he is cashing in. Canyellow is just looking for an easy win. Can’t blame him. The blame is on canyellow.
Interesting…Killa King…would you go to your job…and strive to be the best at it just for the title of being the best at your job….or do you strive to work and be great at what you do …for financial security now and in the future?
Boxing is a peice of shit now a bloke who fought for a light heavywwight title is now fighting a junior welterweight to dodge their mandatory shit sport never will i pay any attention to it again
I’ve said a few times now charlotte would vacate and not fight Tszyu….. As others have stated in this thread, at least Tszyu kept fighting and not waiting for what was an imaginary fight (like many on this forum suggested he wait and not take both the Harrison and ocampo fights!). Can’t wait to see who Tim fights. Ext, but I’m sure it’ll be a challenge.
I’d love it if after Tim gets the WBO to elevate him to full status that he gets the winner of Spence Crawford and if Charlo ever comes back, after getting knocked out by cinnamon the drug cheat, for a fight Tim tells him to f*** off.
Jarmall needs to be stripped of the title due to inactivity. If he can’t fight due to mental health or personal issues, he needs to retire.
Lol Canelo such a dirty little bitch. Making Jerrmarshmallow move up 2 weights just to get paid. It’s Always a catch weight. And nobody scared of Tyszu, it’s just there ain’t no money there unless you’re fighting down under mate…
Mandatory defence. And the way he has been talking Tszyu is an easy fight. He knows he will lose and thats why he is getting in first with the money fight as it won’t be available after he gets knocked out.
If he’s not scared of tyszu why duck him 3 times… he’s 100% scared
They just ducked who they should fight; pride and money.
Rather than fight someone who has to move up 2 divisions why not fight Benavidez?
Actually agree with that Colson…Seems as if Benavidez would be a big money fight….maybe just maybe. …The promoter put together a better…. financial package…making all including the promoters more money than a Benavidez fight could ever bring
Sounds like Canelo is looking for an easier payday. Fighting a smaller man moving up two weight divisions. That has backfired but considering Canelo has fought at 175 not likely. If I were Charlo’s camp there would be a clause as to how much they could weigh the night of the fight. As Delahoya said when Canelo fought Danny Jacobs: It’s for the safety of the fighters. Especially when it favored His fighter. Charlo’s team should get the same consideration.
All the mandatories in each organisation should get together and get a great lawyer between them and demand the Charlos be stripped of the belts ,Sue the organisations for allowing such bullshit to happen as well .
Sadly the image of boxing takes another dive.
100% spot on
Canelo should be ASHAMED of himself! Fighting a guy 2 weight categories below his, whom hasn’t fought due to injury and YET he continues to not only AVOID BENAVIDEZ, but also has the audacity to say that he hasn’t fought anyone?! Plenty of challenges between 68-75 and he opts to fight a career 54 pounder! What a disgrace!!!!!
Sad when boxing’s leading name helps convert the sport into a farce.
His 3 fight deal with PBC is as follows; Jermell Charlo, then Jermall Charlo and finally Errol Spence LOL!!! My goodness!!!!
Canyello is crap! Where’s Bivol? Where’s Benavides? WHERE’S BETERVIEV? HE WANTS TO FIGHT SMALLER BLACK FIGHTERS TO LOOK SUPERIOR, AND THAT MIGHT BACKFIRE! CANELO IS A WEIGHT BULLY, HE WANTS TO FIGHT BADOU JACK AT 20 LBS LESS THAN THE CHAMPIONSHIP WEIGHT! ALL OF THE SMALLER FIGHTERS SHOULD JUST CONSTANTLY PUNCH ALVAREZ BELOW THE WAIST! IT’S ILLEGAL, BUT IT SHOULDN’T COUNT BECAUSE CANELO HAS NO BALLS!!! HIS LEGACY IS CEMENTED IN COWARDICE!!!!
The WBA and the WBC are the MOST corrupt boxing entities w/ no credibility whatsoever. Many boxing pundits have brought up this subject on numerous occasions. They created 17 categories per boxing-sanctioning body, and if you multiply that by 5 four – (WBA, WBC, WBF, WBO, and the IBF), we end up having 85 Champions. They have created a system similar to a junk fast-food business; the more crap they sell, the more they earn…
it’s not my intention to barge in but remember, boxing is a business. Moving two (2) weight classes to challenge Canelo is a smart move for Jermell Charlo. Also, it is an intelligent move for Canelo since if he fought DMITRY BIVOL in September, Canelo Alvarez would lose again.
Amir Khan not available? A fighter 2 weight classes smaller. Andrade not available?
The real competitive opponents have been left hitchhiking with this absurd matchup:Bivol, Benavidez, Morrell, Tszyu.
History won’t forgive you Saul
heres my guess this fight will be for all the belts at a small catchweight and when Canelo KOs Charbroil all 154lb belts will be vacated leaving them all open for the net group of top contenders waiting to be 154lb champ Tszu, and the winner of the Spence vs Crawford fight will instantly get a title shot. thats just my guess
Once more Canelo fighting a fighter with a handicap.
He still refuses to fight a fighter in equal capacity.
I was hoping to see Tsyzu get his shot at the title, facing Charlo. Shame this keeps being delayed. I suppose to Charlo, Tsyzu represents great risk but not enough reward (money), whereas Canelo represents great risk, high reward (huge payday). I don’t see Tsyzu going away any time soon, and the threat he faces looms large over Jermell. Can’t keep avoiding him forever.
I’m hoping that Canelo shows Jermell what it’s all about, since he’s a far superior fighter. If Canelo is properly trained, in peak condition, and motivated, it’s going to be a devastating result for the fiery Jermell.
He just like his brother have not been fighting and have been waiting a long time for a big cash out fight.
And now its all in the PBC family.
Saul playin with everyone on social media hehe..next post will be Canelo v Adonis Creed!
On another note, The WBA and the WBC are the MOST corrupt boxing entities w/ no credibility whatsoever. Many boxing pundits have brought up this subject on numerous occasions. They created 17 categories per boxing-sanctioning body, and if you multiply that by 5 four – (WBA, WBC, WBF, WBO, and the IBF), we end up having 85 Champions. They have created a system similar to a junk fast-food business; the more crap they sell, the more they earn…
100% spot on.
Lets see if this fight even happens, I dont see it
I will keep it short:
CANELO VS. BENAVIDEZ AT 168 (IN TEXAS).
If Jermell can’t hurt Canelo, and I don’t believe he can at the higher weight, he might get steamrolled in 10.
Finally… I’m calling it, Canelo wins by knockout withing 7 Rounds. Charlo is moving up 2 divisions to fight the Super Middleweight King.
Canelo signs a 3 fight deal with the PBC to put all these fools in their place. Charlo is loosing by stoppage.
Fight a smaller guy that hasn’t fought in 2 years gee that’s COURAGE
RIP Canelo
Another funny joke by Canelo and the sanctionning bodies..
So its confirmed. Charlo is running from Tszyu. He should be stripped of all his titles.
Jermell moving up and getting the pay day is great for him.
But Canelo fighting him is a joke when he has REAL THREATS knockin on the door at 168.
Never thought he should fight the cowardly Lion at 160 either.
He should fight Morell , Benevidez, & Bivol (at 168). In any order, but that should be the line up.
no, Pernell, not Jermell..
how cool would it be if James Toney was still a prime 168 pounder..
Charlo might be able to pull this one off using mid range combos and exiting by angles. He has to gain Canelos respect early on though. However, outside of Tommy Hearns and Paul Williams, no one can just jump 2 divisions for one fight and be as effective as their home division.
Good for Jarmell. He has nothing to lose and everything to gain. That should help him go in there without too much pressure.
Just one generation ago, someone in Charlo’s position would take a non title bout just to keep the blade sharp in preparation for the Canelo fight, but…you know.
Charlo is no champion and no lion he is a scared man running and ducking. I personally think they should take all 4 belts from him immediately
If anyone is being avoided at 154, it’s Charles Conwell. He literally kills a man in the ring and has had trouble getting fights since.
Jermall, Jermell!! Canelo will not only fight either brother but will defeat them.
This guy has been fighting since he was a kid and all he has ever known is fight to win because in Mexico there are many boxers, but not all have the capability to have the tools to be victorious. Canelo has those tools and one of those tools are to adapt and fight that individual on his own terms and defeat him. On September the night of the fight Canelo will either have a tko or knock out and will not only take his belts back but will also take Charlos belts as well. I say to Ronnie shields!! You train your boy as best you can but hear me out!! Make a reservation for his defeat.
Canelo: Que dios le bendiga y buena suerte. Viva Mexico!!!
Canelo always finds a way to fight someone at any weight category but his. And we keep failing for it. What a fraud.
Smart move for both parties.
Canelo is running out of places to run so he’s fighting Jermell, a guy fresh off of a hand injury (low-hanging fruit).
I feel bad for Tszyu because he’s been waiting and earned his shot the hard way. However, its called PRIZE fighting for a reason. Fighting Canelo brings a substantially larger prize than Tszyu.
Tszyu needs to attend the fight and do a face-off against the winner to ensure his time is next. His call-out needs to be firm and in front of the world.
Can Jermell hang at 168lb. ? His brother has been fighting at 160 and higher. It looks they are expecting for Jermell to lose and then Jermall can come for revenge. It’s just like the plots on those Hong Kong Kung fu movies were the sibling gets destroyed and other who has the better fightingb skills comes back for revenge. People love these movies. Al Haymon is not as stupid as we thought. Straight out of Hollowood.

Chicago boxer Kenneth Sims Jr. at No. 2 world ranking – CBS News

Published

on





Watch CBS News
By Jori Parys
/ CBS Chicago
CHICAGO (CBS) — Englewood native Kenneth Sims Jr. is making noise in pro boxing.
His latest win last month was his seventh straight, and a WBA super lightweight title eliminator. But as CBS 2’s Jori Parys reported Monday, Sims has fought through obstacles to get where he is – including managing sickle cell.
Sims put on a pair of boxing gloves for the first time at 8 years old.
“My dad forced me to box – and I hated it,” Sims said.
But the young Sims was a natural.
“He picked up things so fast that it was like, ‘Oh, show him this – he has it,” said Sims’ dad, Kenneth Sims Sr.
“He was like, ‘When you learn how to it, you can quit,'” said Sims Jr. “By that point, I didn’t want to quit.”
Sims has fought around the world as a member of the USA Boxing national team, and turned pro in 2014.
He rattled off a 2021 record with seven knockouts since.
But Sims’ latest win raised eyebrows. A 12-round bout against Batyr Akhmedov being ended by majority decision came as no surprise to Sims.
“I seen all the tweets people talk about me seen article people talk about me,” said Sims. “So it was like satisfying to prove them wrong – and satisfying prove people that believed in me right.”
What did Sims prove to himself in that fight?
“Nothing. Nothing,” he said. “I just did what I knew I could do.”
Sims hasn’t lost since a fight since 2018. That was when he noticed something felt off.
“All my energy just went away, and I was just like this – kind of like a zombie before the fight,” said Sims.
Sims was dealing with the side effects of sickle cell – a disease that affects red blood cells’ shape and ability to carry oxygen.
“The first thing they tell you about it is to be careful of strenuous work – so that’s his life,” said Sims’ fiancée, Jailyn Brown. “He has to be sure that he’s taking vitamins; be sure that he’s very hydrated.”
“My mind’s saying do stuff in the ring, but I can’t move, really – my body won’t let me do it. It was a big obstacle for me to overcome,” Sims said. “After I lost, my team, my uncle, my dad – we all was doing research. Went to the doctor got bloodwork stuff done, and I hired nutritionists and stuff. Since I’ve been working with them, I’ve been feeling great.”
Sims ascension to No. 2 in WBA rankings hasn’t come without its challenges but all have led to the present point – preparing with hopes for a world title shot.
“This is where you’re supposed to be. I’ve always said that,” said Sims Sr. “The community we come in you have to figure out how to get through things and that’s always what I’ve preached to him.”
Sims Jr. – a boxer known as “Bossman” – is a true family man with kids of his own, and credits his family as his inspiration. He said it means a lot to be from Chicago, and hopes to one day bring a world title fight to his home city.
Until then, the pro boxer from Englewood will keep working to make his dreams a reality.
“Growing up, I used to watch showtime championship boxing,” said Sims. “Now I’m on it.”
Three fights ago, sims wasn’t ranked. Now he’s No. 2 in world, and will get the first shot to challenge for a world title.
