Junior star Tim Tszyualia commented on the match between Jermell Charlo and Canelo Alvarez. He devoted a lot of time to commenting on this match and thus showed that he is really interested in this match. The fight between Jermell Charlo and Alvarez will take place on Saturday at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Tszyu is the interim champion, as soon as Charlo starts his match on Saturday, this warm-blooded Australian will be the full champion

Tszyu appreciates both fighters, although he gives a big advantage to Canelo Alvarez, he explained that Alvarez is much more experienced, which he cites as his big advantage.

You shouldn't be fooled with Charlo because he is still the undisputed world champion at junior middleweight, the only thing that supports Tszyu's claims is that Charlo is going 2 levels to a bigger division. It's a double-edged sword, as shown in previous matches of this type.

“[Charlo is] the lowest [among the undisputed champions. Then you’ve also got guys like Naoya Inoue and (Oleksandr) Usyk … they’re levels above. They’re the top guys. But in saying that, he (Charlo) is not that far behind.

To be an undisputed champion like Charlo, you have to possess something. And he’s number one in the division, has taken everyone else out," Tszyu told Fox Sports Australia. “But Canelo Alvarez is next level ... and Charlo isn’t on that same level.

I just feel more confident about Canelo now. I still think it will go to the later rounds, and think Charlo will be sharp at first, moving around. But once he sits on the ropes, that’s where Canelo will dominate. Will get the KO.

Just with his physical strength, his IQ and experience. I’m expecting those three factors to play a big part in this fight. “I actually don’t think size will be a massive thing. Canelo used to fight at 154, people forget that.

And he’s shorter than Charlo. So I don’t think size will play a part”. as quoted by BoxingScene
