Mike Tyson’s Fight Night Revelation: Who He Believes Will Emerge Victorious in Canelo vs. Charlo


On September 30, Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez will take part in the 64th fight of his professional career.

He is set to take on the American, Jermell Charlo, in Las Vegas, and he will defend his four super middleweight belts.

A little more than two months before the fight, the legendary ex-boxer Mike Tyson revealed his favorite between the two and his answer left no one in any doubt of his position.

It was striking that he opted for the Mexican and not for his compatriot, especially given that “Iron Mike” had previously told Canelo to stop hand-picking favorable opponents.


“I think Canelo should beat him. Over power him,” Tyson declared to ES News.

“But Canelo’s not moving his head nowhere. That other guy was hitting him and that gave him the confidence, he believed he could hit Canelo.”


It is worth mentioning that the clash between Alvarez and Charlo is agreed at 168 pounds, so the twin brother of Jermall will have to move up in weight as he is currently absolute super welterweight champion at 154 pounds.


What is Canelo’s record against Americans?


Of his 63 fights so far (59-2-2), 13 have been against American fighters with 12 wins and only one loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr. in 2013.

His most recent fight against an American was a technical knockout win over Caleb Plant on November 6, 2021 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

What is Jermell Charlo’s record against Mexicans?

Jermell De’Avante Charlo has fought five Mexican fighters in his professional career and is undefeated with five wins.

The Texas native’s immediate mandatory defense came on June 23, 2019, when he defeated Jorge Cota by knockout in the third round.
