Ronnie Shields: “Jermall Charlo is ready to fight Canelo in the second middleweight, or even light heavyweight”


WBC middleweight champion Jermall Charlo’s coach, Ronnie Shields, hopes that after his recent victory over Sergei Derevyanchenko, his ward will finally be able to get the loudest fight of his career against Saul Alvarez.

“I know Canelo has something going on with DAZN and Oscar De La Hoya right now,” Shields told – “So you know, maybe if they can sort things out among themselves, then they sit down, call Al [Хеймону]and we can organize this fight. This is probably the fight that makes the most sense for Canelo. I think it makes sense for both Canelo and Jermall.

We could fight him at 168 pounds or even 175, “added Shields.” Wherever he wants to fight, we’re ready. It wouldn’t be a problem for us. “

Shields doesn’t question Canelo’s top-notch skills, but he is confident about Jermall Charlo’s chances.

“It’s a tough fight. Canelo is a great fighter. But again Jermall has raised the level of opposition. We would have had a great fight. This would be a fight that fans would definitely want to see. And it needs to be organized.”
