Jermall Charlo It’s Not a Coming out Party


The Charlo brothers are no strangers to the bright lights and roaring crowds of the big stage. Both have plied their brutal trade in the main event on prime time network television and premium cable channels. And in these various prizefights, each sibling was able to secure respectable ratings.

Despite their consistently favorable track record, there are still many throughout the boxing community who don’t believe that WBC world super welterweight champion Jermell “Iron Man” Charlo (33-1, 17 KO’s) and WBC world middleweight champion Jermall “Hit Man” Charlo (30-0, 22 KO’s) are ready to headline their own pay-per-view.

TOO SOON FOR PPV?

Whether you deem the dynamic duo as extremely passionate or overly emotional, there is no denying that in most scenarios their reactions are notably grandiose. And when responding to the notion that the upcoming fight date is their “coming out party,” on the Last Stand Podcast with Brian Custer, they did not deviate from expectation.

“Like I said, I done had some shows. I done put up some great numbers and some great views and SHOWTIME wants this to be it. And they want to put something behind it. They like what they see and I am willing to just step in the ring and do whatever I can. I care less about all this other stuff, I care about getting those belts at the end of the night and that’s all that matters to me.”

“…I been came out, I’m out, I been here! I’m the champ of the world; been the champ of the world two times, I ain’t coming out! I got 2.3 million views on my last fight and about 2 million views before that, I’m out here!”

CRUCIAL DO-OVER

It’s clear that the brothers are not worried about what folks have to say about them. However, they are eager to rewrite a missed opportunity. When the brothers last were co-featured on the same card, December 21, 2019, Jermell would lose his WBC title to Tony “Super Bad” Harrison (28-3, 21 KO’s). Iron Man would go on to rematch and defeat Harrison by way of eleventh round stoppage one year later. Yet, with a second opportunity in their grasp, and a pay-per-view no less, the two champions are hopeful to relish in a joyous night of mutual victory.

“We have been fighting on the same undercards for years with my brother. Like I said, we are not emotional people whatsoever, we’re passionate people and for my brother to feel any type of way when he see me take my first loss, it stirred that up in him. There is no difference between the same emotions my brother has. But we know to keep our heads high and stand and fight for whatever, it doesn’t matter.

“We lost in the amateurs before, we went home and had talks, we know what it feels like. I lost in the pros as a man though and so it’s like I know what I am fighting for is a much bigger scale.”

Likewise, his big brother was full steam ahead as well.

“Let’s do it all over again! I wish that I could relive the moment when I fought [Matvey] Korobov. You know so much was going on but a lot of fans don’t know how much I have learned and grown from that fight. I get a chance to show them September 26 pay-per-view on SHOWTIME. They are going to tune in, and lock in and see what we do. My brother is humbly speaking and I am telling you guys that we are going to come out and have fun!”
