Canelo Alvarez yet again proves his dominance vs. Jermell Charlo to retain undisputed title...

Canelo Alvarez made a statement against Jermell Charlo winning their bout Saturday night in Las Vegas, Nevada. Alvarez defeated Charlo by a unanimous decision (119-108, 118-109, 118-109) to retain the undisputed super middleweight title.

From the very first round, Alvarez commanded the tempo of the fight, capitalizing on every opportunity he was presented. His display of ring control and power punches were superior to his opposition. Charlo, the 154-pound champion, was able to land big punches throughout the rounds, but nothing that ever had any massive impact on Alvarez. Alvarez attained the only knockdown of the match in the seventh round.

Charlo, who characterized his hunger building up to this fight, moved up two weight classes to challenge Alvarez. Yet, he proved he was putting too much on his plate than he could handle. Alvarez silenced the noise of many doubters, outclassing his opposer making it look very effortless. It was the first fight in the four-belt era between two male undisputed champions.

Undisputed welterweight champion, and what most believe best pound-for-pound fighter Terence Crawford was in attendance at T-Mobile Arena on Saturday. He told reporters that he wanted to fight the winner. A fight with Jermell Charlo would have easily presented fewer problems, but Charlo was so mediocre against Alvarez that Crawford degraded him badly on social media before departing the building.
