Jermall Charlo: I will fight Crawford


WBC world middleweight champion (up to 72.6 kg) Jermall Charlo (32-0, 22 KOs) would like to fight with a compatriot who performs two categories lower (at 66.7 kg) and owns the WBO welterweight title weight Terence Crawford (38-0, 29 KOs).

He stated this in an interview
Showtime Boxinghonestly answering the question with whom he would enter the ring, if he had the opportunity to choose any opponent.

Terence Crawford, I will fight him. I will fight you Terence,” Jermall said directly to his potential (?) opponent. “I will be back at 69.9 kg to fight him.”

Note that Charlo has not performed at 69.9 kg since December 2016, when he knocked out Julian Williams in the 5th round.

“Before I hang up the gloves, I want to go down in history as one of the greatest fighters to ever wear them. It doesn’t matter if I have defeats or not, ”the boxer, who has not been beaten so far, added.

Recall that in the upcoming weekend, Jermall was supposed to defend the title in a fight with the Polish middle peasant Maciej Sulecki, but he was injured, and now the mismatch will take place later.

At the same time, Charlo also wants the winner of the Alvarez-Golovkin trilogy.
