The leader of the first average weight (up to 69.9 kg), American Jermell Charlo (34-1-0, 18 KO), appealed to fans on social networks, asking them to stop asking about the possibility of meeting the current leader of the pound-for-pound rating, a Mexican Saul Alvarez (56-1-2, 38 KO).
“People, leave all this shit with Canelo because he is 168 and I am 154. These are two different weight classes. Now i not I can fight Canelo.
When he was still at 154 pounds, I was the first in line. Now I just have to get one belt. Castano, your ass is next. Everyone else will also get theirs, ”said the fighter.
Charlo himself on July 17th will fight for the title of absolute champion with Argentinean Brian Castagno (17-0-1, 12 KO).
