“I want Bivol! Bivol, where are you? Jermall Charlo challenges Dimitri to a fight


American WBC middleweight champion (up to 72.6 kg) American Jermall Charlo (32-0, 22 KOs) after the end of the boxing evening Cepeda – Prograis
desired aloud the next opponent of the “super champion” according to the WBA light heavyweight (up to 79.4 kg) Russian Dmitry Bivol (21-0, 11 KOs).

Also in the conversation, a-Charlo commented on the bright victory of the newly-made WBC super lightweight champion (up to 63.5 kg) American Regis Prograis (28-1, 24 KOs) over compatriot Jose Cepeda (35-3, 27 KOs), answered other questions and spoke about the “kings” of the divisions. Recall that Jermall himself last entered the ring in June 2021.

“I want Bivol next!” Bivol, where are you!? He just called me.

“We just saw Regis take the world title for the second time. What do you think of his performance?

“I think he did very well. His head movements were insane. There could have been more body jabs and other little things, but he got the job done. You can’t criticize someone when they’ve done their job. I give him five plus.

When will we see you in the ring?

— In 2023. I know that this is the most important question for everyone. In 2023. Look, I’m 100% right now. I’m ready. You saw Bivol come and call me. Crap! I’m Big Charlo!

– It’s two divisions. How will your fight go?

– This is a tough fight. I am more than him. I am healthy.

Were you impressed with his fight against Zurdo Ramirez?

– Not. I was impressed with the fight against Canelo. I was impressed with the dude, period. So if this is going to be one of the biggest challenges, then I’m all for it.

– At 79.4 kg?

– I can lift 76.2 kg.

What do you think about all this talk about a potential Benavidez-Plant fight?

“They just talk.

– Who is your favourite?

Probably Plant.

Are you interested in a duel with the winner?

Yes, I hope I get the money. You know what is, is. It’s just talk. If they want to see me in the ring, they will.

How will this fight end?

“I’ll fucking knock out everyone!”

“And Bivola, Mungiu?”

Munguya didn’t want this rams. He could fight me. You ask me how it is with a promoter. I’m not a promoter, I’m a fighter. I’m just fighting. If they want a fight, they will do it. That’s all I can do. Everyone wants to fight the best, the champions. I am a champion. Everyone wants to fight the champion, that’s fine. You should not take this as personal. They should call me.

What do you think of your close friend Errol Spence? His fight against Terence Crawford will not take place this year. Let’s hope it takes place in 2023.

“Beware of Jermell Charlo, my twin brother. Just beware of it. Also beware of Spence. He is the king of welterweight. My brother is the king of 69.9 kg. I am the king of 72.6 kg. Regis is the king of 63.5 kg. Beware of us!
