During the press conference in New York City, Canelo Alvarez notably excluded Eddie Hearn from his list of top promoters in the sport. While Jermell Charlo expressed gratitude to both team Canelo and Hearn for facilitating the fight, Alvarez, the Mexican boxer, asserted that Canelo Promotions and PBC held the distinction of being the foremost promoters in the current landscape of boxing. In response to Charlo’s labeling of team Canelo, Eddie Hearn, and Saul himself as “legends in the game of boxing,” Alvarez extended his appreciation to Al Haymon for their bout and proceeded to announce his best-promoters list

The Mexican fighter began by calling Jermell Charlo “a great fighter in his weight class“. In his opinion, Charlo “takes challenges” like him. “We love being involved in this kind of fight. Al Haymon, thank you for this. I think right now the best promoters are Canelo Promotions and PBC. So, I’m happy to be in this position right now,” said Alvarez.
