He is also the no.1 super-middleweight and undisputed champion, holding the WBA (Super), WBC, and Ring magazine titles since 2020, and the IBF and WBO titles since 2021. He has won multiple titles in three other divisions, and is the first and only boxer in history to become undisputed champion at super middleweight.
Canelo’s journey to becoming undisputed started in 2020 when he faced Callum Smith and won the WBA (Super), The Ring, and vacant WBC super-middleweight titles. He then defended them against Avni Yıldırım, before winning the WBO super middleweight title in what was a mega fight against Billy Joe Saunders. Alvarez then faced Caleb Plant in Nov 2021 and defeated him to win the IBF super middleweight title and become the first undisputed super-middleweight champion. He briefly moved up in weight to face Dmitry Bivol for the WBA (Super) light heavyweight title but lost the bout. He then came back to defend his titles against Gennady Golovkin last year and John Ryder in May this year. Canelo will now face Jermell Charlo as he defends his undisputed status.

He has a record of 35 wins, 1 loss, and 1 draw, with 19 wins by knockout. Charlo turned professional at the age of just 17 in 2007 and won his first 31 fights within an 11-year period. His only loss so far has been to Tony Harrison in December 2018, where he lost his WBC light middleweight title.
One match later, he would knockout Tony Harrison to win the WBC light middleweight title, which kickstarted his journey towards undisputed championship. He then faced Jeison Rosario and won the WBA (Super), IBF, and vacant The Ring light middleweight titles. In the next fight, he would face Brian Castaño for the undisputed championship in July 2021. However, the fight ended in a draw, and it would be rematched in May 2022. In the fight, Charlo won via a 10th-round knockout, becoming the 7th male 4 belt undisputed champion in history. His next fight was supposed to be against WBO No. 1 contender Tim Tszyu in January 2023, but it was postponed twice. He has now elected to face Canelo instead and so will lose his WBO belt as soon as he enters the ring. But it will be a chance to make history against one of the best fighters at the moment.

However, it’s important to note that both Showtime and PPV.com are geo-restricted. If you are not in the US, you will need to use a reliable streaming VPN such as Surfshark to access the fight. The VPN provides lots of servers in the US and is super-fast.
Method 2: Watch Canelo Alvarez vs Jermell Charlo using Free Streaming Apps & Addons
Besides Showtime PPV, there are also some third-party apps you can use to watch Alvarez vs Charlo. These methods provide users with free links, but there are some precautions you need to take before using them.
⚠️ Free Streaming Precautions
The links provided by third-party apps and addons are usually not vetted to check their legality or even safety. This means that when using them, you can easily gain access to pirated content. Doing so is illegal in almost every region and can easily land you in trouble with Johnny Law.
👉 It’s important to protect yourself by using a VPN, if you want to try out any of these free streaming sources. A VPN will encrypt your online traffic, preventing your ISP from knowing what you’re accessing. It will also disguise your IP address, making it difficult for copyright trolls to track you.
✋ However, choosing a reliable VPN is crucial to ensure effective protection while enjoying uninterrupted streaming without buffering.
After that, you can check out the apps below.
