Post-September 30, the world will recognize the dedication I’ve poured into my craft, a commitment dating back to my youth. Each bout for me is not just a fight; it’s a performance, a dance of danger from bell to bell. My aspiration? To be remembered as a legend.
Canelo will soon discern the might behind the Charlo name. My actions echo my words. He’ll witness my hard punching, footwork, and my mastery in the squared circle, akin to his talent. This isn’t going to be a cakewalk for him. He’s gearing up, and so am I in parallel.
I’ll step into the limelight with flair and zeal, immersing myself in the art I adore. This isn’t just sport; it’s a symphony of our shared heritage and spirit.

Canelo Charlo Undercard
A stacked undercard will feature a blend of rising stars, ranked warriors, and former titleholders. Spanning weight divisions from 147 to 160 pounds, this boxing bonanza will air live on SHOWTIME PPV, this coming Saturday, September 30.
Serving as the co-main event of the evening, Jesus Ramos Jr., an unblemished young gun, is set to go toe-to-toe with Erickson Lubin, a rock-solid contender. The two will duke it out for 12 rounds in the super welterweight division. Not to be overshadowed, former champs Yordenis Ugas and Mario Barrios are also slated to battle for the Interim WBC Welterweight Championship. And to kick things off at 8 p.m. Eastern Time/5 p.m. Pacific Time, emerging middleweights Elijah Garcia and Armando Reséndiz will square off in a 10-round tilt.
Ramos, a 22-year-old southpaw with an unscathed record of 20-0 and 16 KOs, made waves in his 2023 debut by putting Joey Spencer on the canvas. Hailing from Casa Grande, Arizona, this kid has hands of stone, as evidenced by his record of stopping seven of his last 10 opponents.
Erickson Lubin, 27, enters the ring with a 25-2 record, backed by 18 KOs. His most recent victory was a fifth-round stoppage over Luis Arias, and the Floridian’s résumé boasts marquee wins against the likes of Jeison Rosario, Terrell Gausha, and Ishe Smith.
Ugas, with a 27-5 record and 12 KOs, is stepping back into the ring after an April 2022 loss to Errol Spence Jr. A native of Cuba and current Miami resident, Ugas has a trophy case that includes big wins over Jamal James, Omar Figueroa Jr., and the iconic Manny Pacquiao.
Barrios, 28 years old and holding a 27-2 record with 18 KOs, recently notched an eighth-round KO against Jovanie Santiago. The fighter from San Antonio is eager to reclaim his standing after a welterweight debut that saw him on the losing end against Keith Thurman.
Rising star Elijah Garcia, an Arizona native with a 15-0 record and 12 KOs, exploded into the 2023 boxing scene with a knockout victory against Amilcar Vidal. This 20-year-old is already showing he’s a knockout artist to watch.
Finally, Armando Reséndiz, originally from Mexico and now residing in Los Angeles, comes in with a 14-1 record and 10 KOs. The 24-year-old recently chalked up a significant win against ex-champ Jarrett Hurd and is aiming for his third straight win.
