In a very tense situation at Barclays Center on Saturday night, middleweight contenders Jermall Charlo and Daniel Jacobs got into a shouting match in the bowels of the Brooklyn arena.
In a video posted by Fight Hype, Charlo was talking to the media following the Deontay Wilder and Luis Ortiz fight on March 3rd, when Jacobs who was also in town for the fight was walking through.
Prior to Jacobs appearing on-camera, Charlo was wanting to pass by both of their next opponents and get to a fight between he and Jacobs.
“Jacobs wanna fight, let’s fight! You feel like that let’s skip the Centeno fight. You ain’t gotta take your next fight either…let’s skip that sh**and get to the bag.”
While Jacobs and Charlo were talking and implying they both wanna face off in the ring, the entourage members of each fighter were heating up and hurling insults and slurs at one another.
While both men would walk away from the situation not looking to start a brawl in the hallway of Barclays Center, the two would take to talking trash on Twitter later the next day.
Following the incident, Charlo would allegedly be robbed by a female companion for over $155,000 in cash and jewelry.
