Jermell Charlo hasn’t even dealt with Canelo Alvarez yet, and the prospects have already started to open up for him. Charlo is achieving a fantastic feat by moving up two weight divisions to face the P4P king, an undisputed champion at Super Middleweight. If Charlo wins the fight, he’s considering making an offer to Terence Crawford. But where do the fans feel his prospects stand against the first two-division undisputed champion among men?

Crawford has shown interest in fighting ‘Iron Man,’ as he stated on his Instagram, “Caught the big fish, now I’m hunting the lil cub @twincharlo.” Followers may as well remember him trash-talking Charlo in the middle of the Errol Spence Jr. fight. So a potential fight brewing may take place after Charlo-Alvarez.
