Charlo Claims Andrade Uses DAZN As A Shield
WBC middleweight champion Jermall Charlo wants his chance at both Canelo Alvarez and Gennadiy Golovkin, but knows that may not happen.
And while that may not be on the table, Charlo welcomes the idea of facing WBO champion Demetrius Andrade, yet feels that won’t happen.
“I’m here to fight whoever,” Charlo said following his knockout of Dennis Hogan on Saturday night. “I will fight Demetrius Andrade any given day. If that’s what it take to get to the next level, I wanna fight the biggest and the baddest out there.”
“Look, Demetrius Andrade, I like his campaign,” Charlo said. “Great fighter. Now he’s chasing. You know what I mean? He got a chance to fight my twin brother [Jermell, in December 2014] and he canceled the opportunity. That was back in the [day]. Look, he’s hiding behind a network right now. I’m not. I’m Lions Only Promotions. It’s all over the ring. Come on, man. We not going nowhere. We not scared of nobody. This what we do, bro. We fight, bro. We fight for a living. This what I do to feed my family, man.
“When you saying like, ‘Not gonna fight somebody,’ man, if he wanna fight, we gonna make the fight happen. You know what I mean? A side, B side, C side, I don’t give a f*ck about none of that. We gonna make the fight happen. Demetrius Andrade wanna fight, he can get that work, too. He know how to get over here [to PBC, Showtime and FOX]. Just like he went over there to DAZN, he know how to get his ass back over here.”
