Jermall Charlo warns Canelo Alvarez, Demetrius Andrade and Daniel Jacobs he’s here to fight!

After a second successful defense of the WBC middleweight title, Jermall Charlo (30-0, 22KOs) has sent out a message to the fellow champions and top contenders that he’s here to fight!

Charlo (29), systematically broke down his undersized opponent Dennis Hogan (28-3-1, 7KOs) who made the move from junior middleweight for his second consecutive world title opportunity. In the fight, he scored two knockdowns; one in the fourth round and the second and final one in the seventh.

Afterwards at his post fight press conference he was asked about potential fights against fellow middleweight champions Canelo Alvarez and Demetrius Andrade and former middleweight champion Daniel Jacobs.

“You know I’m not a matchmaker but I want the most explosive fights. I want to put myself to the test and challenge myself with the biggest competition out there.

“You know that fits me at the right time. It’s all about timing. As long as the money right and the timing right we can turn it into a prizefight overnight.”

On if he’d fight Sergey Derevyanchenko

“Dude I’d fight anybody man. I’m a boxer I fight for a living dog. I’m not scared of anybody, I got the WBC belt.”

On politics

“Don’t let the politics fool you man. I’m here to fight!”

On facing Demetrius Andrade if Canelo isn’t available

“Like I just answered the last question, I’m here to fight whoever. I will fight Demetrius Andrade any given day if that’s what it takes to get to the next level.

“I want to fight the biggest and the baddest out there. Shit I’ll fight in Saudi Arabia too, you see what they’re doing out there. This is only a little bit part of my life. Of course I want to expand it and challenge myself to be the best I can be.”

Charlo definitely has the skills, power and athleticism to compete with the names mentioned above. However, it seems with him to be a timing thing.

At 29 years old and heading into his peak prime, he must make the time right now! For his legacy and to legitimize his standing not only in the middleweight division but in boxing as a whole.

Hopefully 2020 brings big fights for the hard-hitting undefeated WBC champion.
