Jermell Charlo (WBC champion)

“I actually thought Jermell was losing the fight with John Jackson before he turned the fight around in the eighth. He allowed Jackson to pot shot him and steal the rounds.

That was weird to see because I consider Jermell the better technician of the twins. He’s very big at 154 (lbs) and very upright. He’s got a good jab and does everything correctly.
