HOUSTON (CW39) – Before heading to Las Vegas to challenge Undisputed Super Middleweight World Champion Canelo Álvarez, Houston’s own Undisputed Junior Middleweight World Champion Jermell Charlo received a hometown send off at this Saturday’s University of Houston vs. Sam Houston State University college football matchup at TDECU Stadium.

Before being honored on the field during an in-game timeout, Charlo held a boxing clinic for kids from the Stafford Boys & Girls Club at the Cougar Alley pre-game tailgate area. CW39 Houston meteorologist Carrigan Chauvin was in the ring to host the event.  

Charlo will headline a much anticipated SHOWTIME PPV event against Canelo, as two reigning undisputed champions will meet for the first time in the four-belt era on Saturday, September 30 from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Canelo Promotions will present the Premier Boxing Champions pay-per-view.
