Mike Tyson sides with Canelo Alvarez for the upcoming 168-pound championship against Jermell Charlo

Expect tension as Tyson supports Alvarez against Charlo, leaving legends Chavez and Beristáin, among others, yearning for a Benavidez bout.

The 168-pound unified champion is Canelo Alvarez, who already has an opponent for September 30 in Las Vegas; the red-haired fighter will face Jermell Charlo, the brother of boxer Jermall Charlo, who could not compete against the Mexican and therefore gave his place to his twin. That is why Mike Tyson already has his bantamweight for the fight.

Mike Tyson is an international boxing legend, and although he gave his full support to Canelo Alvarez a few years ago, the reality is that IronMike is not happy with the opponents chosen by the tapatío, since the American also wanted to see a fight with the death against David Benavidez.

But not only Mike Tyson wanted to see Canelo Alvarez fight the Red Flag, but also Mexican boxing legends such as Julio Cesar Chavez and the legendary trainer Nacho Beristáin. The reality is that the undisputed super middleweight champion will face Jermell Charlo later this year, whether anyone likes or dislikes him.

Who is Mike Tyson’s favorite in the Canelo vs. Jermell Charlo fight?

The Canelo vs. Charlo fight will take place on September 30 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Both fighters come in as the undisputed contenders, but the fight will take place at 168 pounds. That is why Tyson already has his rooster, and to everyone’s surprise, the one he will support will be the Mexican.

IronMike has given his full backing to the Jalisco native and will be supporting him from his corner since he thinks that Saul Alvarez, who is the absolute 168 lbs. champion, will dominate the Charlo twin without any problem. It is important to point out that Jermell is the absolute super welterweight (154); therefore, moving up represents a latent risk in his fight against the red-headed fighter.

If not Canelo, which Mexican will David Benavidez fight?

Given the refusal of the super middleweight Indiscutido to fight David Benavidez, the Red Flag will be able to fight against another Mexican, and the chosen one is Jaime Munguía, who has become fashionable thanks to the excellent level and the conflict he gave a couple of weeks ago when he defeated Sergiy Derevyanchenko.
