Jermall Charlo wants to “expose” Canelo Alvarez, says he’d fight Gennadiy Golovkin

Charlo is currently without an opponent, but says he’s ready to take on Canelo Alvarez.

Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

WBC middleweight titleholder Jermall Charlo has still yet to be scheduled for his first outing of 2021, so takes to Instagram Live to ask his followers who they think he should fight next while addressing some of the names surrounding his. In the end, Charlo makes it known that he’s targeting a showdown against Canelo Alvarez, who he says he’ll expose whenever they meet. Check out some excerpts below...

“They want to know when I’m gonna fight again,” Charlo said. “I’m like, ‘Shit, who am I gonna fight? Where they at?’ Can we address that (David) Benavidez issue, come on, man. Knock it off. Knock it the fuck off. I ain’t never been scared of nobody, ever.

“Where the real champions at? Where the real lions at? ... Who ya’ll want to see me fight next? What makes the most sense? ... I’m thinking like Eubank or somebody. Who ya’ll wanna see me take out? ... I’ll fight GGG.

“That’s why I don’t want to fight no Eubank because ya’ll already fuckin’ doubting me, ya’ll don’t even really like that fight ‘cause ya’ll know I’m bigger than that ... Remember that time Eubank pulled up to the — what was that, we was doing a fuckin’ photo shoot for Showtime. Eubank’s daddy pulled up on me, he tried to size me up, and was shivering! His daddy was shivering, you know what I’m saying.

“My one fight this year, I’m exposing him. Canelo-Charlo.”
