Famous coach Teddy Atlas commented on the victory of the absolute world champion in the second middleweight of the Mexican Saul "Canelo" Alvarez in a battle with an American Jermell Charlo.

“You have to give Canelo credit. I had no doubt that he would win, but I didn’t think it would be a one-sided fight, as it turned out. Also to give Charlo credit, Alvarez was too big, too strong and too determined as well as aggressive.

Still, Canelo is not the greatest Mexican fighter of all time, but he was and remains a tremendous fighter of his era. You have to give him credit for that. And he has the authority to declare himself the greatest, and if you have the courage to disagree, then you are an outcast. Glory to Caesar.

Again, fans and fanatics only see victory, but if we consider everything in context, then Alvarez is too big and strong for little Charlo,” Atlas wrote in X.

Let us remind you that Alvarez defeated Charlo by a crushing decision.
