Canelo Alvarez Excludes Munguia, Hints at Charlo Showdown on May 4

In a recent interview , Canelo Alvarez dropped a subtle bombshell regarding his May 4 fight, eliminating Jaime Munguia as a potential opponent. The Mexican superstar confirmed the fight will take place in Las Vegas against an American rival, shunning the possibility of an all-Mexican showdown.

Despite discussions between Alvarez and Munguia’s camps about a potential clash, it seems Alvarez is steering in a different direction. The frontrunner for the bout appears to be Jermall Charlo, aligned with Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) and part of Alvarez’s ongoing three-fight agreement with the organization.

While boxing fans have clamored for a matchup with David Benavidez, another PBC fighter, it seems Charlo is in the lead for the opportunity. The potential choice of Charlo, despite his long layoff and the dominance of Alvarez over his twin brother, Jermell Charlo, in their previous bout, could stir controversy among fans.

Jermall Charlo’s return in November 2022 marked the end of a 29-month hiatus, attributed in part to mental health issues. The Houston-based fighter moved up to super middleweight and secured a victory against Jose Benavidez Jr., signaling a shift from the middleweight limit.

As for Munguia, his recent impressive win over John Ryder fueled speculation of a showdown with Alvarez, especially after Ryder’s competitive bout against Canelo in May 2022. However, Alvarez’s decision to face an American opponent alters the course for Munguia.

The boxing world now awaits the official announcement, curious if Alvarez will indeed lock horns with Jermall Charlo on May 4, bringing the drama and anticipation to new heights.
