Across the fight, Charlo attempted to move around and hit Canelo Alvarez with hard shots to keep him at bay. However, this strategy did not work against the Mexican boxer, who even managed to knock him down in the seventh round. After the fight, Alvarez was asked who his next opponent might be, with the possibility of it being David Benavidez. Subsequently, Alvarez stated, “I don’t know. I don’t f—ing care.” 

The interviewer also asked Alvarez about his body and physical condition, and Alvarez stated he was satisfied with them. In addition, Alvarez said he worked out for three months and even trained in the mountains alone. Alvarez noted that his love for boxing still burned brightly within his heart, and he would continue to work hard. Furthermore, Alvarez felt that he was back in peak physical condition after suffering from an injury to his left wrist.

Alvarez’s injury led to his underwhelming performance against Dmitry Bivol, but Alvarez felt he had proven himself after defeating Charlo. Hence, Alvarez remains very confident about himself and feels that this version of him can beat anybody, even Benavidez.

Before the fight, Alvarez stated that he was highly motivated to win this fight because of Charlo’s trash talk.

Charlo is an expert technician inside the ring, and he avoided several punches to the head. Furthermore, he was able to land several blows on Canelo Alvarez, but Charlo wasn’t able to dominate the fight the way Alvarez did.
