Canelo Alvarez is the undisputed super-middleweight champion and is considered one of the best fighters in the world. However, Alvarez’s credibility has taken a hit recently, and he knows it, so he has addressed the subject. The reigning WBC Super Middleweight Champion said he did not look the same in his last few fights.

Furthermore, Alvarez had lost to Dmitry Bivol by unanimous decision, and his performance disappointed the fans. However, he redeemed himself by winning his next two fights against Gennadiy Golovkin and John Ryder. Currently, Alvarez is getting ready for his fight against Jermell Charlo, the undisputed light middleweight champion. In the second episode of Showtime’s ‘ALL ACCESS: Canelo vs. Jermell Charlo’ Alvarez said, “Boxing-wise, I wasn’t 100 percent,”

Alvarez acknowledged that he hasn’t been his best since undergoing surgery on his left wrist after his fight against Golovkin. However, Alvarez stated he was ready to return to the ring and show the world his best self. Furthermore, Alvarez stated that critics always looked for things to criticize, but he agreed with them. Hence, Alvarez wished to prove them wrong through his actions in the ring during his fight with Charlo.

Alvarez also mentioned that the trash talk had motivated him for this fight. Subsequently, Alvarez mentioned that the Charlo brothers have always underestimated his skills, and he wishes to prove them wrong. Hence, in the upcoming bout, Alvarez wants to deliver a performance for the critics and for people who doubt him.
