Tonight’s Live Boxing Results: Canelo Vs. Charlo – SolSportHQ
By Mark Eisner: Canelo Alvarez will be out to prove that he’s still in top form tonight when he defends his undisputed super middleweight crown against his selected opponent, Jermell Charlo, who is coming all the way up from the 154-lb division to challenge him for his belts on Showtime pay-per-view in Las Vegas.
Live boxing results will be provided below of tonight’s action.
The event begins at 8:00 p.m. ET for the main pay-per-view portion of the card and at 5:30 p.m. ET for the three-fight preliminary card.
Canelo (59-2-2, 39 KOs) hasn’t looked like his old self lately, struggling through his last three fights, losing to Dmitry Bivol, and having major problems beating the shell of Gennadiy Golovkin & British fighter John Ryder.
Some boxing fans believe Canelo is a shot fighter from the tough fight he had with the highly skilled former IBF super middleweight champion Caleb Plant in November 2021.

Blueprint is there to beat Canelo
“The two men that beat Canelo Alvarez, what did they have? They had a great jab, they had great footwork, and they were counter-punchers. Floyd Mayweather and [Dmitry] Bivol,” said Tim Bradley to ProBox TV on how Jermell Charlo can beat Canelo Alvarez.
“The blueprint is out. There are two blueprints that’s out on Canelo Alvarez. Bivol had to throw over 700 punches to get the victory, but if he [Jermell] has that type of stamina and if he uses feet and box like, then he has a damn good
chance of winning this fight.”
The two blueprints that were created to beat Canelo were from fighters that were on another level than Jermell, and it’s difficult to imagine him being able to follow what they did.
Mayweather was a masterful boxer with lightning-fast hand speed and an excellent ring IQ. Jermell isn’t on that level. WBA light heavyweight champion Bivol was a bigger fighter with outstanding technical skills and was highly disciplined. Jermell isn’t disciplined, and his technical skills are far below that of Bivol.

“Remember, when Roy [Jones Jr.] went up to heavyweight now, he was 193 pounds. He thought a guy that was 220, 225 in [John ‘The Quietman’] Ruiz, and he outboxed him. He moved, he used his quickness to get in and out on him.
“Canelo can be outboxed. We know that. If Jermell can outbox him, can withstand, and one more thing. He has to make sure, Charlo, that he is rolling & slipping those shots instead of catching and bracing those impactful punches of Canelo because that can be damaging and draining in this fight as well,” said Bradley.
Jermell must slip punches
“So slipping, moving, using his legs, making Canelo fall short, he can tire him out and on the back end of the fight, there’s no doubt about it. He can definitely close the show and could pull off a victor,” said Bradley.
“And also, Tim, like like you said. Don’t take the flack from those shots. Like we’ve seen Canelo bust guy’s arms out,” said Chris Algieri. “Callum Smith, he literally targeted his bicep, targeted his arm.
“Canelo has that kind of power, that thudding beat you down kind of power, and when you got a guy who’s that much smaller than you, and we are going to say he is a smaller man, you can’t get hit on that those shoulders, on your hip bones. That adds up,” said Algieri.
