La controversy in does not stop. Now the coach Jermell Charlo, champion of super welterweight and considered the best in the world, he has set the ring on fire with words that will give people something to talk about.

Derrick James has questioned how it could be that Canelo Alvarez could be in the lists Pound for Pounda ranking of professional boxers made by the magazine The Ring and in which he chooses the best fighters in relation to others with different weight. Since these fighters do not compete with each other, making this list is very subjective and different criteria are looked at to carry it out.

In an interview on the You Tube channel, FightHype, James justified himself. “This means that these guys are so good that if they fight in any division they would be the best. Canelo reached light heavyweight, so that means he’s your limit and therefore, can’t be on the list“, he commented.

after lose to Bivol on May 7, the world-class coach believes that “not worthy of being on this list“Because he definitely found his ceiling as a fighter.”It’s not my opinion, it’s the truth. The Libra for Libra is a mythical ideal. If a player is that good, he fights at light heavyweight, cruiserweight and heavyweight,” he argued.

Canelo is not the only one who receives

Derrick James has had for everyone. Since she saw that her student was in the position number 9 after winning the undisputed championship in the 154 class in May, he can’t believe the ranking. “lomachenko lost three years ago, so how can he be on the list?” he pointed out. “He knew his limit. His skills are phenomenal. but if you go up to any weight, you lose, so it can’t be on the list. The positions of Canelo and Lomachenko are for Jermell“, he pointed out bluntly.

Canelo will face the Kazakh for the third time in his career Gennady Golovkin next September 17 in Las Vegaswhere to seek to put an end to the rivalry with a resounding victory.
