Canelo Alvarez Dominates, Wins 60th Career Bout

Canelo Alvarez added another mark to his incredible resume, besting Jermell Charlo Saturday night to defend his super middleweight titles.

Alvarez scored a one-sided decision over the reigning undisputed junior middleweight champion, improving to 60-2-2 in his career.

The bout headlined the event from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, airing live on pay-per-view. It marked the first time two undisputed male champions in the four-belt era squared off.

The loss was just the second for Charlo in his career, falling to 35-2-1 overall. He was looking to join Terence Crawford as the only male boxers to win undisputed titles in two or more weight classes in the four-belt era. Claressa Shields also accomplished the feat in women’s boxing.

On the undercard, Erickson Lubin scored a decision victory over Jesus Ramos while Mario Barrios did the same vs. Yordenis Ugas. Elijah Garcia picked up an eighth round TKO victory vs. Armando Resendiz.

With the win, Lubin became the WBC Diamond super welterweight champion, moving to 26-2 overall. He previously held the WBC Silver super welterweight title. Barrios became the interim WBC welterweight champion with his 28th career win and second in a row since a 2022 loss to Keith Thurman.
