Jermell Charlo: “Canelo By Far The Best Fighter In The World Right Now”

By: Hans Themistode Jermell Charlo has always thought extremely highly of himself. The Houston native presently holds three of the four major world titles at 154 pounds and is currently on the verge of becoming the first undisputed champion the division has seen since Winky Wright in 2004. With everything that he has accomplished, Charlo believes he should be on everyone’s pound-for-pound list. However, if given the number one spot on said list, he wouldn’t accept it. Simply put, only one name should be universally mentioned as the best fighter in the world. “Canelo by far the best fighter in the world right now,” said Charlo during an Instagram live session. “Canelo is a f*cking stud. He work hard just like me.” At the moment, Alvarez is wrapping up his training camp while Charlo is just getting his started. The unified super welterweight champion is set to take on WBO titlist Brian Castano on July 17th. As for Alvarez, he’ll look to add the WBO super middleweight title of Billy Joe Saunders to his WBA, WBC and Ring magazine titles this Saturday night at AT&T Stadium in Arlington Texas. Well, at least Alvarez assumes he’ll be fighting Saunders. Over the past few days, both Alvarez and Saunders have gone back and forth over the size of the ring they’ll be fighting in this Saturday night. Team Saunders was under the belief that their contest would take place in a 24 ft ring. Yet, according to Tom Saunders, father of Billy Joe, once they arrived in Dallas, they noticed that the ring was actually 18 ft. They balked at the idea of their showdown taking place inside such a small ring. To acquiesce to their demands, team Alvarez offered to increase the ring size to 20 ft but nothing more. Saunders then threatened to walk away from their contest entirely. But, after negotiations took place behind the scenes, Saunders has revealed that the ring issues have been resolved to his liking. Throughout the entire dramatized ordeal, Charlo has watched closely from a distance and had some choice words for the British native. “Billy Joe you on some bull shit. P*ssy you scared of Canelo. The best should fight the best.” The post Jermell Charlo: “Canelo By Far The Best Fighter In The World Right Now” appeared first on BoxingInsider.com.

Jorge Linares: “People Say Jorge Linares Is Old But They Don’t Recognize That I Was World Champion Four Times”

By: Hans Themistode At the age of 35, Jorge Linares is still a fairly young man. However, in terms of boxing, he’s viewed as an ancient fighter. The former multiple division champion still considers himself at the top of his game though, even as he reaches the twilight of his career. Currently, Linares (47-5, 29 KOs) is putting the finishing touches on his training camp as he prepares to take on WBC lightweight belt holder, Devin Haney. Although the Venezuelan native doesn't see a dip in his speed or punching power, he’s listened closely as most have viewed him as an aging fighter. Nevertheless, he still believes his credentials in the boxing world demand a level of respect. “People say Jorge Linares is old, he’s retiring, he lose five times but they don't recognize that I was world champion four times,” said Linares during an interview with Boxing Social. Linares will have the chance to add to his already impressive credentials when he takes on Haney. The two are slated to face off on May 29th, at Michelob Ultra Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. While Linares is confident that he’ll take care of business in the next few weeks, he notices the sizable talent of Haney. In the 22-year-olds most recent ring outing, he received a ton of criticism for his performance against long-faded former champion, Yuriokis Gamboa. Most were expecting Haney to walk through the 39-year-old considering he was coming off an Achilles tear and stoppage defeat at the hands of Gervonta Davis roughly one year prior. Despite those expectations, Haney was forced to settle for a lopsided unanimous decision victory. In the mind of Linares, there was nothing wrong with the showing of Haney. In fact, he was actually impressed. “I respect him. Little by little he gains experience. I saw his last fight with Gamboa. Gamboa is nothing right now but he does amazing job.” With the likes of Teofimo Lopez, Ryan Garcia, Gervonta Davis and several others currently crowding the top of the 135-pound division, Linares can’t help but smile when he thinks of all the endless possibilities that await him. With that said, he quickly turns his attention to the task at hand. While he may want to jump into the ring with all of the big names as soon as possible, he knows that if he doesn’t take care of business on May 29th, those dream matchups could go down the drain. “There’s a lot of good boxers in lightweight but I’m ready. The most important thing is to win this fight and think about the next one.” The post Jorge Linares: “People Say Jorge Linares Is Old But They Don’t Recognize That I Was World Champion Four Times” appeared first on BoxingInsider.com.
