Jermall Charlo is definitely appreciating the spotlight. The 31-year-old will certainly have the home town group securely behind him when he tackles Juan Macias Montiel at the Toyota Facility, in Houston Texas tomorrow evening.
While Charlo (31-0, 22 KOs) asserts to be completely concentrated on the job available, the WBC middleweight belt owner has an eye on several of the larger names in the department. When their face-off was initially revealed, several were let down. The Houston item recognizes excellent as well as well that Montiel had not been his front runner. Initially, group Charlo tried to draw present IBF belt owner Gennadiy Golovkin right into the ring. Those strategies, nevertheless, dropped by the wayside.
Whether it’s Golovkin (41-1-1, 36 KOs) or any person else for that issue, Charlo is starving to encounter them all.
“I can hold my ground with Golovkin,” claimed Charlo to a team of press reporters. “I’m ready to fight a big name but I can’t get the big names in there with me.”
Presently, Golovkin is angling for a marriage face-off versus WBA titlist, Ryota Murata, for completion of the year. In in between, the Kazakhstan puncher is reported to be curious about a competition versus middleweight challenger, Jaime Munguia.
No Matter what he eventually does, Charlo isn’t always chasing him down. At the age of 39, while still an excellent boxer, Golovkin shows up to have actually shed an action. And also now, Charlo thinks he is just the much better total boxer. To even more back his insurance claim, Charlo advises everybody to just consider the tape.
In October of 2019, Golovkin battled strongly with leading challenger, Sergiy Derevyanchenko. Eventually, Golovkin would certainly bow out their competition with a razor-close consentaneous choice win but several thought it was undeserving. When Charlo encountered Derevyanchenko one year later on, he battered his guy throughout 12 rounds.
Along with contrasting efficiencies, Charlo has appointments concerning dealing with somebody that gets on the brink of transforming 40 years of ages.
“I feel like I can edge GGG because look at what I did to Derevyanchenko. Golovkin had a hard time with him. I just don’t want to pick on an older man and make it look like I’m going for a weaker play but he does have a belt. If it’s time to unify before he runs out of gas then I’m here to fight him.”
