Jermell Charlo Dripping With Confidence Ahead of Fight With Canelo Alvarez

While it should come as no surprise, undisputed super welterweight champion Jermell “Iron Man” Charlo (35-1-1, 19 KO’s) is brimming over with self-belief. Charlo has taken on the best challenges he can find, collected all the belts in his division and avenged his only loss and draw by knockout. Seeking greater challenges, rather than fight his WBO mandatory challenger Tim Tszyu, Iron Man has penned a fight with boxing cash cow and undisputed super middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (59-2-2, 39 KO’s).

It was known that Alvarez signed a multi-fight deal with Premier Boxing Champions and would fight “a” Charlo. Yet, most assumed that the larger and currently inactive brother, WBC middleweight champion Jermall Charlo, would get the nod. Instead, the much hungrier Jermell Charlo will now climb two divisions to collide with Alvarez. Despite the obvious uphill battle in front of him, Iron Man took to his social media to let it be known he was not intimidated by Canelo in the least.

“Undisputed versus undisputed, fuck it! I’m 150 [pounds], I’ll gain a little weight. The little Charlo will fight anybody. Nigga, I ain’t never ducked no smoke. Undisputed versus undisputed, that could be a big thing in boxing!”

“Fuck it, that bitch can’t beat me with that last shit performance, yeah!”


There is no doubt this is a big and bold move for Jermell Charlo to make. Naturally, he will get a handsome payday and strengthen the lore around his name. On the other hand, this is a terrible look for Jermall Charlo who remains on the sidelines. The larger Charlo has not fought in over two years and has no fight in sight.

One can only imagine that there has to be some kind of tension, or at least awkwardness between the two brothers, professionally speaking. In the past, Jermell has gone to bat for Jermall saying that he remains among the cream of the crop. Yet, the more Hit Man sits idle literally doing nothing, it gets harder and harder to defend. Perhaps there was a bit of this sentiment expressed during that live session.

“I’ve been holding it down for the Charlos, y’all know what it is!”

It will be interesting to see what the two have to say about this fun action-fight in the slew of upcoming interviews that are sure to come. Stay tuned to 3Kings Boxing to find out!
