Shawn Porter Gives Lopsided Prediction For Canelo Alvarez vs. Jermell Charlo

9 months ago By Sports Desk

Shawn Porter recently shared his one-sided prediction for the Canelo Alvarez vs. Jermell Charlo boxing match. The former professional boxer surprisingly claimed that the fight wouldn’t go the distance. 

Canelo Alvarez and Jermell Charlo are set to clash at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas this weekend. This will be the Mexican star’s first outing as a member of the Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) promotion. Earlier this summer, he left Matchroom Boxing to sign a three-fight, $100 million dollar deal with PBC. 

The main event, titled “Undisputed vs. Undisputed,” will feature a 12-round fight between the two. While many are excited to see who comes out on top, opinions are divided on whether Charlo can take on the naturally bigger Alvarez. This is because ‘Iron Man’ is moving up two weight classes to fight him.

Shawn Porter reflected upon the size and experience of both boxers and predicted Canelo Alvarez to brush past Charlo. In an interview on ThePorterWay podcast, the former welterweight champion shared his thoughts on the fight. Porter confidently predicted a knockout victory for Canelo Alvarez and predicted that the fight wouldn’t go beyond the seventh round. The former professional boxer also claimed that such is the business of boxing, and he’s betting on business to win. 

In May 2022, Alvarez suffered his first defeat in almost nine years against Dmitry Bivol in the light-heavyweight division. However, the Mexican boxer redeemed himself with two consecutive wins over ‘GGG’ and John Ryder at 168 pounds. While both fights were largely perceived as underwhelming, they set Canelo Alvarez up for the Charlo fight. 

Meanwhile, Jermell Charlo is the reigning undisputed super-welterweight champion. He will enter the squared circle after a career-best win against Brian Castano. However, jumping two weight divisions remains his biggest challenge. Charlo is understandably the betting underdog going into this fight. However, combat sports are as unpredictable as the weather, and anything could happen.
