The super middleweight clash revealed that Canelo’s lost form is back as he looked smooth against Jermell Charlo. After 12 rounds of action, Canelo won the match via unanimous decision and updated his professional boxing record to 60-2-2.

When asked what's next, Canelo did not entirely dismiss the match with Terrence Crawford; he said if it made sense, he would entertain that fight. Only time can tell who Canelo will fight next. You can watch the entire match highlights below: This was Jermell Charlo’s second career defeat, and a lot of corrections are to be made.

After the recent loss, his professional boxing record has been updated to 35-2-1. Charlo will have to prove himself on a few more occasions before getting a golden opportunity again; he still has the super welterweight belts, and it will be interesting to see if he drops down in weight for his future bouts.

Canelo’s thoughts on the win

Canelo is absolutely delighted with the win; he believes he’s back and is ready for the future. “I think that happens with a lot of fighters,” Canelo said, as quoted by mmafighting.com. “That’s not on my mind to just survive.

But I did my job. I think he never do something to win. That was my plan. Neutralize everything what he’s going to come with. He’s a counter-puncher with that left hand, and I tried to not get hit. Sometimes a fighter can’t do anything in the ring too.

Canelo further said: My hand is 100 percent and I feel good, I feel great and I’m still in my prime. I feel fresh, I’m ready. I think this is Canelo. I’m back. Finally, I’m back. I feel confident right now.

I feel great. I’m so happy because I didn’t feel like this for a long time. Now I’m back”.
